St. Augustine, Florida # 1

In addition to real history, St. Augustine has some touristy attractions too such as Robert Ripley's Believe it or Not.

If one gets tire of looking at old stuff, you can buy some.

There are antique shops on every corner.

On September 8, 1565, 800 Spaniards  landed at an Indian village named Seloy and established a colony.  That was the beginning of 450 years of people living in St. Augustine, the oldest continuously occupied city in the United States.

There must be a half dozen companies providing trolley tours of St. Augustine - Why did we choose the one we did?

Our tour company offered free parking and room for Treky - We brag about Treky being small but lets face it he, he is 19 feet long - that quite a bit longer than a compact car.  St. Augustine has very limited parking and you pay a hefty fee for most parking lots.

More tomorrow.

Ron, Tippy and Treky
