Day 3 - St. Augustine

We had a much shorter leg of the trip on Day 3 from Flowery Branch, GA to St. Augustine, FL.  We arrived early enough to go out for the evening with our daughter and her husband and friends to a great Italian Restaurant.  That was a meal that will haunt me whenever I am hungry.
The next day we toured the nearby area and I loved these long-horned cattle.  They were ambling away from me so this was the best shot I could get.
Later in the day we took a car tour of the old part of St. Augustine.  I loved the architecture and want to drive up to this city again soon and take a walking camera tour.
The balconies aren't as elaborate as in New Orleans, but I liked this one especially.
Our first year in Florida we drove to New Orleans for a cruise.  On the way home we toured St. Augustine and I took dozens of photos of the ancient fort.  If I come up here again I would like to tour the inside.
The bridge is within view of the fort and so picturesque.
The old pillars in front of this house have been beautifully preserved.  The wood house is an amazing age for Florida...and termites.
I had to take a photo of this old drug store in memory of my dad and the family pharmacies.
The details of the buildings are photos themselves.  It certainly establishes the building as church related for all time.
