Gorgeous! So much good news out of St. Augustine. I love lighthouses, and the view from this one is spectacular. Thanks for the post.

Love the St. Augustine lighthouse. Adds extra charm to a great little city. Very much miss living there and hope to make it back.

Great little museum and bookstore connected to the lighthouse too.  Bought a really interesting book about the development of Fresnel lenses there.  Without that development in the 19th Century, modern lighthouses as we know them would not exist.
