SkyWatch Friday: Castillo de San Marcos

Castillo de San Marcos, St. Augustine, Florida. August 4, 2009.

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

I was working with some pictures taken back in August, 2009, when I came across this picture of a watch tower and walls of Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine, Florida.  Since I captured the fortress under a bright, but cloudy, Florida sky, I thought this was an appropriate picture for Skywatch Friday.

********************

Betsy and I enjoyed our last blogging break so much that we are taking another.  Hopefully we’ll be back about May 9.

    When I first saw it and not reading the words I thought this was taken in the Philippines. We have Spanish Forts there and it just looked like this. Great shot!! Thanks for sharing!

    Glad you shared this scene again. I do not recall seeing it before. However, that does not mean much since I tend to forget. You two just keep on traveling and enjoying what you do.

    Enjoy your break from blogging….

    I had seen some local watch towers here and they’re all made of steel. I think a watch tower made of stones in more magnificent.

    the surrounding itself is marvelous and adding the watch tower made it historical.

    These battlements look very similar to ones that I saw in Panama. I guess the conquistadores worked from the same blueprints, no matter which country they overran!

    THEY LOOK AT THE SKY

    The look at the sky, and they say,
    “Though storm clouds be scudding my way,
    I still like the sight;
    By day or by night
    All heaven’s a stunning display.”

    Bob and I visited St. Augustine in March of 2007. One of these days we’re going to learn that we visited some place at the same time as you or Betsy 🙂

  13. Mildred Says:

    Nice photo George. I visited St. Augustine when I was 5 and then again when I first met John. It’s a beautiful spot.

  14. diane Says:

    the clouds look like they are going to visit the fort.
