Fountain of Youth Park
The ‘Founders Riverwalk’ at the Fountain of Youth Park is one peaceful place. Blue skies, fantastic scenery, usually pretty quiet . . . this pier was damaged by Hurricane Matthew last October, but the folks in charge had it up and running by our trip in March of this year. I’m always tempted to sit and close my eyes to listen to the rushing of the inlet, especially if it’s warm and sunny with a nice breeze. Too bad they don't let you sleep here overnight.
This pretty thoroughfare is called Tolomato Lane, named for the Tolomato Cemetery which you’ll find if you walk the entirety of the street, turn left and cross Cordova Street. I think this photo has a very tropical look for some reason, indicative of St. Augustine’s unique personality and charm. Note the gate and the tabby wall at left, and the colorful “Old City Gates” plaque” on Kilwin’s Chocolates at right. The bronze bust which can be seen above the gate is located on the Oldest Wooden Schoolhouse grounds.
