Junie's Place: ....to conclude... (maybe)

....to conclude... (maybe)

Oldest House



OK ~


You get the idea that I really liked our St.Augustine trip - right? :)

It's a beautiful OLD city and I find everything about it fascinating!

~~~

Just a few street scenes from the trolley rides we took...in no special order. It's amazing how old this place is and how wonderful it looks.



























































Here we are at the Old Jail and Museum and gift shop!

Yikes! Look at the BIG alligator skin...says it was 'kilt' by a kid in our town-Ocala!





















As you see I continued to live dangerously on this trip... :)

...but I was wondering how a soft touch could hurt that big old iron tractor...and, actually, I couldn't see any change after I touched it!
(I'm so bad!!)


However-I didn't take the chance of walking up those steps to the top of the lighthouse- lest I fall or have a heart attack or something like that!

This lighthouse was completed in 1874 and stands 161 ft. tall!



Well....I guess I have one more post coming up, after all! :) Sorry!!



Love,

Junie Rose

I love seeing your pictures and I'm not sorry that you have one more post about your trip.

Nice sky pictures too and yes the bunny did survice it had to because it couldn't be replaced and that was the only thing that saved it.
I saw where Sharon had written on facebook that the bunny had sinned so they had to cut off its ears, hehehe.

I tried something new in poetry...
I listened to music and wrote down parts of lyrics and then I went back and put a space after each 4 sentence fragments and to my surprise it told a sort of a story. It was fun and I'm going to post it in a little while.

You are SUCH a rebel for touching that when it CLEARLY said DO NOT TOUCH!!!!!

:-)

St. Augustine looks very charming.
