St George Street in St Augustine

After visiting Kennedy Space Center, it was off to spend a day in the historic part of St. Augustine, FL, the "oldest continuously occupied settlement of European and African-American origin in the United States".

We spent most of our time wandering along St. George St, a pedestrian only area with lots of neat touristy little shops and restaurants.

At the St Photios Greek Orthodox Shrine you can find out about the first colony of Greeks that came over in the late 1700s

At the end of the street we stopped in to visit the Cathedral Basilica of St Augustine

There's a sundial on the cathedral tower, but the indicated time was about an hour ahead of what my watch said. Not sure what the proper correction is for it. The website for the cathedral doesn't mention the sundial at all.

After that we walked over to the Castillo de San Marcos. It's a pretty cool stone fort used by the Spanish, British and Americans. Lots of history and well worth the visit to learn about the history of the area, the fort and for the views.
