Fountain of Youth

This view taken from the Founders Riverwalk shows the 16TH century replica watchtower, reconstructions of Timucua Indian huts, the gentle Matanzas River, and the chalupa “San Agustín.” Notice the muddy water. It’s very common to see hundreds of clams nestling up against the shore, which is fascinating if you’ve never seen them in such abundance before. Also note a variety of informational markers and a rusty antique cannon to the right of the tower.

Davenport Park

This kind of pictures evokes a certain emotion in me. How many people sat on this very bench in Davenport Park and watched their friends and loved ones taking a turn on the vintage carousel? And of course watching San Marco Avenue is always interesting too.
