This is the same viewpoint as the last photo with the boats at sunrise, only looking to the left into the sun. It’s always a bonus when the @stauglighthouse
is in the skyline! #explore #staugustine
As the afternoon storms move off shore. @stauglighthouse
shines bright in the background. Have a great night.
Yay I made it back to St. Augustine lighthouse! The sister lighthouse to Cape Hatteras Lighthouse in OBX. That was the way it was referred to as when I visited Hatteras. The three visible differences between the two are the direction of the black strips, this lighthouse has a red top and Hatteras has a black one, and Hatteras is taller than this lighthouse. This lighthouse was first lit in 1874 and is still a working lighthouse. It is 165 ft. tall, has 219 stairs to the observation deck at the top, and is the second tallest lighthouse in Florida and the eighth tallest in the US. #staugustine #staugustinelighthouse #visitflorida #lighthouse
Took the dinghy out for a ride to Lighthouse Park. Tied up at the public dock, and then climbed to the top of St. Augustine Lighthouse. We’re going on 18 months of boat ownership - and these little new adventures are still bringing us such delight. #dinghy #greatloop #staugustine #staugustinelighthouse #boatlife
St. Augustine, Florida is rich with history. This city predates the pilgrims landing on Plymouth Rock by many years. Founded in 1565 by Spanish explorers, it is the oldest continuously occupied European-established settlement within the borders of the continental United States.
The St. Augustine Light Station is a private-aid to navigation and an active, working lighthouse in St. Augustine, Florida. The current lighthouse stands at the north end of Anastasia Island and was built between 1871 and 1874. The tower is the second lighthouse tower in St. Augustine, the first being lit officially by the American territorial government in May of 1824 as Florida's first lighthouse. However, both the Spanish and the British governments operated a major aid to navigation here including a series of wooden watch towers and beacons dating from 1565. This lighthouse hosts thousands of visitors each year and is rumored to host ghosts as well! Considered one of America’s most haunted places it brings many who are interested in history and ghost stories, including myself. The St. Augustine lighthouse is definitely a must-see if ever you’re in the area!
