St. Augustine Lighthouse

The St. Augustine Lighthouse keeper’s house was begun in 1876 and is a beautiful example of Victorian architecture. The brick wall and curving branches and palm fronds provide a stunning tropical frame, and yes, that blue figure beside the middle branch is indeed a person, not a ghost . . . I’m pretty sure.

Anastasia State Park

This was interesting to see: a rubber-like grid laid over the sand for better traction. I saw some people trying to roll their bikes over it . . . not sure how that went. As for walking, it wasn’t so bad, but it was a bit strange at first. Beyond the sand you can see a snack shop, as well as a little gaggle of palms. (What is it about palm trees that makes us wish we could drop everything and pack?)
