Travel blogging can be full of surprises. Readers, my recent trip to St. Augustine, Florida was a vacation spot you do not want to miss. It was quite a special experience seeing the oldest European city in the United States. I thought it would be fun to begin a blogging series of random photos and share of few interesting facts along the way.
The development of much of Florida along the Atlantic Ocean was established by Henry Flagler. He was an American icon of historical proportions famous for developing many industries in the area. This included railroad, oil, and numerous business ventures of all kinds dealing with resort hotels.
Above is a statue of Mr. Flagler. When he died on the day of his funeral, the railroad employees had a ten minute time of silence in respect to all he had accomplished for the state of Florida.
Another amazing attraction is one of the bridges that crosses into St. Augustine. These lions guard with majestic beauty.
St Augustine takes you back in time. It is a peaceful feeling to walk along the cobblestones ponderings those souls who lived here before us. It was spiritually a beautiful experience.
More photos to follow with an in-depth look at the history of this city.
