Castillo de San Marcos, St. Augustine, Florida. August 4, 2009.

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.

We were in St. Augustine, Florida, the day before Betsy’s birthday this year.  We stopped to visit Castillo San Marcos.  The day was beautiful with white clouds floating through a blue sky.    It seemed possible to step back in time on such a day.

    We were there many years ago and stayed in a hotel on the beach. We loved watching the sunrise form our window. It is a beautiful spot with marvelous views of the Atlantic.

    I know you all had a wonderful time. There is a lot of history at that Fort.
    It’s also a great place to watch fireworks on the 4th of July. That’s what our family did. That’s also where I took a spill out of my wheelchair. That was fun? lol
