No billboards on this route
Our trip to St Augustine was lead by John Smith. Nothing but back country roads on the way up. Here, the line of cars makes its way through the Ocala National forest.

 

We're here !

Arrival at our hotel, time to unpack, take a quick dip in the pool and get ready for dinner.

 

Dinner at the Raintree
Our first nights dinner was at the Raintree. A St Augustine hot spot for great food.

Flagler College There's alot to see and do in St Augustine. Trolly tours, Ripleys, The Alligator Farm, shopping, eating, ghost tours and the Lighthouse were just some of the things on our list.

 

Can you see the spirit ? St Augustine is the 3rd most haunted place in the US according to our tourguide. This picture was taken upstairs at Harrys Bar and Grill. The ghost of the lady, who used to live in the building, still walks these rooms. Can you see her ?

 

Saltwater Cowboys Time for dinner after a long day of activities. Located on the marsh lands of the intercoastal waterway, Saltwater Cowboys is a hard place to find but well worth the trip.

 

What a great place.
Here's the group once again enjoying a fine meal.

One big lightning rod
The famous lighthouse at St Augustine. Most of the group made the trip up the 219 steps to the top..... I was told it was a great view.

 

Our rides

The grounds of the lighthouse were picturesque. The massive oaks made for a beautiful place.

More great pictures !

A big thank you goes out to John and Cecelia for putting together this trip. Everyone had a great time and we can't wait to do it again next year.
