Tuesday and Wednesday St. Augustine’s Nights of Lights
Anastasia State Park Last Days at Disney World in which Winnie the Pooh Wishes Me Happy Birthday
St. Augustine, Florida
What a wonderful day we had in St. Augustine and seeing its Nights of Lights yesterday. That post is the first one above under Most Recent Posts.
Today we spend most of the day on the beach before heading to the Lighthouse.
I have it all planned out. We’ll arrive at 3:30, take the tour and spend the rest of the time until sunset on the grounds and in the museum before climbing the light at sunset. We arrive right on time to find this sign saying that the last tour is at 3pm. SIGH……. If we are going to pay our $12, we want the tour. SO, knowing there will no doubt be a next time since we seem to be trapped in Florida for the winter, we put it on the list of things to return for. We can do that and visit the Lightner Museum.
But in order to duplicate this plan I have to arrange to be here within two days of the full moon during the Nights of Lights.
Oh well, we saw the Nights of Lights this time and one out of two intentions isn’t bad.
Today is our last day at Anastasia. David heads out for the clinic for an all day infusion. I go down to the beach.
The skies are blue and full of white clouds as I take the boardwalk for the last time.
I guess these are the sandmen that Pat Boone or was it Patty Page sang about.
Florida’s answer to the snowman.
Not many people out today. The two in their bathing suits are dressed quite differently from the biker and those walking along the beach.
It’s a beautiful day on a beautiful beach and I’m surprised more people aren’t out to experience the wonder that is nature.
Time for me to go back to make dinner. David will be home after a very long day.
I’m so sorry he missed this praiseworthy afternoon.
On my way home on a previous day I passed a gopher tortoise at nearly this same spot. Today an armadillo is snuffling around.
Nature is just grand!
