St. Augustine Beach
A simple yet beautiful sight: I could stand for hours just watching and listening to the ocean. This photo was taken at St. Augustine Beach, a busy place, yet when you’re standing at water’s edge it seems like no one else is around and all you can hear is the roar of the surf. Even a history buff like me can appreciate St. Augustine’s beach access.
I find it rather amusing that, considering how religious folks were in the 18TH century, that a cross on the wall might not deter any number of card games taking place at this table. I do really like this scene, as it’s chockfull of details . . . weathered beams, old pitchers, jars, and bottles, a fireplace that has seen better days, a broom against the wall, an old candle, and the uneven coquina floor, just to name a few. The modern fan at left ruins the shot, but I can see why it’s needed . . . no ventilation in this place during the spring and summer tours.
