Feb 25, 2006 - Sat - St Augustine, FL - Tour

(We travel just a few miles around St. Augustine, FL.) 07:10 AM We are up and at 'em! We sleep late this morning.

Jan 5, 2005 - St Augustine

St Augustine is the oldest permanent settlement in the USA. Ponce de Leon touched ground here in 1513, but European settlement began when Spain’s Pedro Menendez de Aviles put ashore on St Augustine’s Day in 1565. Sir Francis Drake’s ships razed the town in 1586, the first of many battles before Florida was eventually ceded to Britain in 1763.
