Old Historic St. Augustine Florida, Lunch with Cuz Connie:: Rolling, Rolling, Keep Them Wheels a Rolling - Winter 2015-2016

During our visit to the St. Augustine area, we enjoyed a lazy lunch/stroll/visit to old historical St. Augustine.

We drove downtown, found a nice "free" parking spot and strolled up and down the section of St. George Street that is closed to vehicles. 

I always am taken by flowers:

The oldest wooden school in America.  

We had lunch at the Columbia, a Cuban eatery.  We first ate at the Tampa Ybor location, the original, two years ago. We enjoyed our lunch in St. Augustine as much.  If you go you really must try the 1905 salad and the original Cuban sandwich.  

This gate opened in 1739 and provided the only access through the defense line on the north side of Spanish Saint Augustine.  The pillars were added in 1808.

A little bit of a shelf cloud bank and the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument:

What a wonderful way to spend a leisurely Sunday afternoon.
