This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

I’ve already posted about our visit to Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine during our Florida trip earlier this month.  (That post is HERE if you want to learn more about this fascinating place).

It was beautiful while we were there.  The temperature was relatively mild (by Florida standards) and the the sun was shining brightly.  There were enough fluffy white clouds to make the sky interesting.  I couldn’t resist sharing this additional picture from that day.

    Great shot George. Looks like it was a beautiful day on your visit there. If you ever make it to Kansas City you should check out a place called Fort Osage. Its out near Buckner Missouri. Sets on the edge of the Missouri River. I grew up around there and this was a neat place to visit.

    Lovely white clouds in those blue skies ;–)
    Methinks (if memory serves) I shared skies at Small Reflections and Sacred Ruminations this week, but not at HRG.
    Hugs and blessings,
