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.


Castillo de San Macros



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.



Huguenot Cemetery


Cathedral-Basilica of St. Augustine.
The oldest Catholic Parish in the U.S.

The first mass was celebrated in 1565

Kat took this picture of me in the courtyard of the Government House.

  1. Wow, those pictures really take me back to the last time I was in St. Augustine. I’m glad you all had a good time, and thanks so much for sharing your vacation photos with us! πŸ™‚


  2. I enjoyed the pictorial tour of St. Augustine. I have heard much about that city from a friend on my blog. Her hubby takes her there quite a bit.

    I have always wanted to see that Fort. I have seen it featured as a backdrop in several movies and shows.

    If you decide you and yours would like to visit D.C. come on by….you can even stop here for awhile….:-) We love giving tours of D.C. and my husband won’t get us lost for three hours trying to find the Zoo…. πŸ™‚


  3. Ginger,

    Thanks, I’m sure we will make it back. Nate is getting his PhD in American Colonial History. Think he may have to do some research there eventually.



  4. You’re welcome to drop your suitcases off here for awhile. We are not too far from the Metro which makes it a little easier to access D.C.. If you not into fighting traffic…. πŸ™‚
