Trip To St. Augustine

Recently my family and I went on a mini-vacation (seriously, mini.  Just one night) to St. Augustine, Florida.  St. Augustine is the oldest still living (well, not actually living–but you know what I mean.) city in America.  It’s a really cool place, full of old buildings and monuments and stuff.

I won’t write much, since this post is going to be long enough with all of the photos that my mom and I took while there.  😀

 

We went to ‘Ripley’s Believe-It-Or-Not’.  The whole place is very interesting, but with a creepy tone to it.

I don’t remember what this was exactly. But it was a guy who could actually swallow his nose… But don’t worry, it’s just a wax figure, not the real guy. 😛

My brothers walking on top of a wall that leads to a very old fort, called ‘Castillo de San Marcos’.

If I remember correctly, this was a furnace used to heat up cannon balls so that they would be VERY hot when shot.

We also went to this Greek orthodox shrine.  But most of my photos from there are blurry, so here’s this one of the ceiling.

We also visited a place that I think was called, ‘Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche’. My mom took all of these photos, and she’s a much better photographer than I am. XD

Some old graves. There were lots of very old graves there.

Snakes

We also saw a couple of snakes.

That’s all for now.
