Today is the last Friday of September, so I decided to put two photos instead of one. Instead just call it a draw bridge, we can actually see it sort of in action. It is down. Then it is up. Not that it provides any clues of where it is.
St Augustine is a cool little city on the northern part of the Florida Atlantic coast. It is one of the oldest (if not the oldest) cities in the United States. As you might guess, the photo was taken sometime around Christmas time, but it is south enough for palm trees to be happy green. We were there on for couple days to see what its all about and take a few photos, with early morning being the most deserted.
Looks like about a full moon on a clear night in this cool little city. It is pretty old and very historic as evident from the shown fort. I already posted a few photos from this place in the past, so it is probably fairly easy to figure out where it, just be browsing through 800+ of the posted photos… unless you just know where it is.
Where is it?
Weekend Update: Yep, it is in St Augustine, Florida. Castillo de San Marcos National Monument. Too many of you got it right, so I’m not going to list you here. You know who you are. Thanks for stopping by!
It is somewhere warm so palm trees can grow and where some big ships can come, and if they happen to be enemy ships, they could be destroyed by canon balls shooting from the walls of this fort. Soo, my distinguished world travelers and search gurus, where is this place?
Update… There were a lot of guesses and half of them were just on the spot – St. Augustine, Florida. But looking through your comments, you brought up so many places that I have yet to visit. Better get some vacation soon and book some tickets, as your destinations look pretty nice:
- Suez Canal, Egypt
- Panama Canal
- Caribbean fort but it could be anywhere in the Mediterranean
- Galle, Sri Lanka
- Old San Juan Puerto Rico
- Strait of Hormuz in Oman/UAE/Iran
