I Found The Fountain of Youth





This week we took a trip to St. Augustine, FL, in search of something new.
We came to find the Fountain of Youth, as many often do.



We wandered around the intracoastal city, marveling at its past,
Until we the spotted notorious, ancient landmarks at last!



We discovered Castillo de San Marcos, the oldest fort around.
But this wasn't the only piece of history we found.


An 18th-century schoolhouse, hand-crafted out of wood.



lighthouse with a breathtaking view from the top where we stood.




Then to St. Augustine Beach, to sink our toesies in the sand,
and cherish the sun and surf, hoping to get tanned.







I found the Fountain of Youth, fascinating as it was back then.



But, it was the searching for it with my family that made me feel young again!



{I am on blog leave through Sunday night. Enjoying sunny Florida!
See you on Monday!}

  16. Oh, how fun!
    My family went To St. Augustine when I was in 6th grade. Of course, the most memorable things from that trip were: Ripley's Believe it or Not, The horse-drawn carriages, and swimming in a motel pool in the sun - singing a (then) current hit commercial theme fro the Bahamas. ROFL!

    The things you remember from childhood :)

    (I tried to find that crazy video on You Tube to share the commercial earworm with everyone...but sadly I can't seem to find it. It was a pretty woman standing in a swimming pool moving her right hand to the right, then left to the left, like the "Showcase Girls" did on The Price is Right. She was signing, "Oooh, eee, yeah, Bahamas! Lookie here, Lookie there!" as I recall - LOL!)

    Thanks for sharing your very fun trip with us!
