St. Augustine

I made it to St. Augustine, FL yesterday. I had no idea what a cool place this was! Steeped in history, it’s the oldest continuously occupied city in the United States. The first Christian worship service held in the continental United States was a Catholic Mass celebrated in St. Augustine. Martín de Argüelles, the first child of European ancestry to be born in the continental United States was born here. The list of firsts goes on. But aside from its history, this place is a very photogenic city. The St. Augustine Lighthouse, constructed between 1871 and 1874, offers a rare view of the ancient city.
