A new view of the St. Augustine lighthouse windows.
A glimpse of Heaven's open window along the path to Heaven's door, from atop our lighthouse.
Lightner Museum was originally built by Henry Flagler as Hotel Ponce DeLeon. It was the grandest hotel in the United States. Only the rich and famous could afford to stay there. Today it houses priceless treasures from all over the world, and relics of St. Augustine's past. Don't miss it if you come for a visit.
The floor pictured here was originally the bottom of an indoor pool for guests. You may notice the many doors and windows, below the balcony and at the balcony level.
This shot is from inside, looking out onto another wing of the building.
Another attraction featured in prior posts, is Castillo De San Marcos, our old fort.
The drawbridge door leading onto the walkway over the moat was quite an engineering feat in its day.
There is another drawbridge door protecting the fort, itself.
Windows of the lookout tower were designed narrow enough to lend protection for the sentry on duty.
Some fort windows were designed to host firepower.
The fort dungeon is said to have been the site of torture and death. People say that screams can be heard from the suffering spirits that linger, even today.
Zorayda Castle, built in 1883, was originally the summer home of a Boston millionaire, Franklin Smith. It is a replica of a wing at Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain, but only one tenth the size.
None of the windows in this building are the same. The ghost tour tells people that each window is unique so that the spirits that inhabit the rooms can find their way back if they go out on the town.
It's kinda gaudy to look at, in my opinion.
