A Trip to St Augustine

Dear Lucy,

Yesterday Donna and her mom took me to see St Augustine. It was a real treat.

St Augustin is the oldest continuously occupied European established city and the oldest port in the United States.

We walked along the old streets and looked at the buildings (which of course are now shops) and took a gander at the fort pictured here.

The fort is made of a stone called coquina which means "little shells", the shells having bonded together over the years to form stone. It was really fascinating.

We all bought something at one of the shops, though we were drawn in to most of them to get out of the stifling heat!

I finally got a picture of Donna after I agreed to let her get one of me too. She is so camera shy!
