The trip is from New River, West Virginia, to Stinking Creek, Tennessee, by way of Long Key, Florida.
St. Augustine, Florida
Driving out of Anastasia State Park into St. Augustine we stopped to view the lighthouse.
Then we parked the motor home to tour the old Spanish fort.
We walked from the fort through the city gate.
Into the oldest settlement in the United States. It was founded by the Spanish in 1565, long before the Pilgrims arrived in Massachusetts.
It has the oldest schoolhouse in the country. I don’t know if the chain was to hold the old building together or to keep the students from escaping.
There were also several churches.
Just outside the old town was Flagler College.
With this spiked chain that caught my eye.
There was also a small park with a Ponce de Leon statue.
That afternoon we left St. Augustine and continued south along the coast on Rte. A1A.
