Honeymoon pictures Part 1!

The beautiful trees at Fort Mantanza, St. Augustine. I loved these trees. This picture really does not capture the true beauty of these trees.

Me with the trees. (By the way, this is Jonathan's favorite shirt...he gave it to me, so I just had to wear it during our honeymoon :D)

Fort Mantanza....BEAUTIFUL!

The St. Augustine Lighthouse, in all her glory!


The VERY high spiral staircase. Look closely and you can follow it near the top!


The lighthouse "home". This is where the families who managed the lighthouse lived.

View from the top.
The beautiful bay from the top of the lighthouse. Notice the shadow of the lighthouse in the trees.

I wasn't so sure about being up there......

kinda frightened me....

....a little.

I discovered this gem in the museum....I loved it!

Great pictures! I hope you had a lovely time in St. Augustine. It's one of my favorite cities.

Did you go on the bay cruise and see some dolphins??? I guess I'll have to wait and see.

Hey Danita: Unfortunately we didn't get to go on the bay cruise, or see any dolphins. We kinda got there later than we should have...that's what happens when we make up our own times :D

I'll have to remember that, I think we're going back for our first year anniversary. :D

Melissa :D
