St. Augustine

by Jacki February. 27, 2009 626 views

Yesterday we decided to stop in St. Augustine. Given 24 hours in a place, I'll choose big water over architecture every time… thus only a few shots of town and more of the ocean! We got to watch a number of whales for a while!

watching the whales that were just off shore!

I wanted to photograph the unusual shore birds (black skimmers), when I got close they took off. (best enlarged)

(also better enlarged)

black skimmers

really WHITE sand beach, almost deserted

walkway through the salt marsh, over the dunes to the ocean

Nice shots of such a surprising city. Really loved it when I was there, maybe 10 years ago. I love big water too. :)

Amazing photos of the black skimmers...St Aug seems to be a great place to photograph marine life
