Florida - March 2012

I had never been to Florida, and when Cindy found a good flight deal to Orlando for a visit to her mother, who's lived there for some years, I decided it was time to seize the opportunity. With roughly a week's time, we saw sights along the Atlantic coastal area, focusing on the area around Sebastian, Florida — with an expedition to do St. Augustine touristing (I found St. Augustine Walking Guide to be a useful resource for that!).

Sebastian area

Visiting Mary Lord

The Ponce de Leon Hotel, now Flagler College

The Villa Zorayda

For whatever reason (considering the Villa is a wedding venue as well as a National Register siter), no photos were allowed — and the photo coverage on websites is disappointing. Here's one image via Goole of A.S. Mussallem's ancient Egyptian cat fur rug artifact on display.

The Bridge: St. Augustine Bridge of Lions

Old Town Miscellany

St. Augustine Lighthouse
