Warning today’s post has a lot of pictures.
Well, Friday was the final day of the Kat & Chief’s trip. After we checked out we headed to St. Augustine for a few hours before going to the airport. This was Kat’s 2nd trip to Florida so she had already seen the Historic District. Chief hadn’t actually been in the historic district. We didn’t have time for a tour but The Big Guy being the historian makes a pretty good historian. Our first stop was in the Visitor’s center. I wanted to get a picture of Chief by the ship inside the visitor’s center. I had taken one of Kat on her earlier trip.
The Big Guy walked up during the first attempt at this picture.
Notice the book in Nate’s hand. He is a true PhD student.
Always trying to find time to study.
Finally got that picture of Chief by the ship in the Visitor’s center.
Finally got a picture of us.
When we come to St. Augustine, is usually just us.
Making it hard to get a picture together.
Not the usual downtown view.
Kat by the water.
Another shot of the Castillo. In the background you can see a cross.
The Cross is at Mission of Nombre de Dios, the site of the first Catholic Mass in the US.
Cathedral-Basilica of St. Augustine.
The oldest Catholic Parish in the U.S.
The first mass was celebrated in 1565
