History in the oldest city, St. Augustine

We decided to spend one day in Ponte Vedra to learn a little history in the oldest city, St. Augustine. We took the tour of the city in the Old Town Trolley, and were able to get off at lots of stops along they way to check out the oldest, continuously occupied European settlement in the continental United States.   St. AugustineWe did a lot of shopping along St. George Street which is closed to vehicles.  The high light was finding the hippo pop sickle shop that makes very fun and different flavors, like blackberry-goat-cheese, chocolate-coconut, peanut butter-banna-honey, and bourbon peach.  To learn even more History in St. Augustine, we made our way to the fort Castillo de San Marcos where we looked at the outside of the fort and saw how they made the hug cannon balls for the cannons and we looked at the Cubo line which was constructed to protect the city.

The best part of the whole vacation is that we got to try out our camping skills again.  This time we stayed in the KOA in St. Augustine and had a great time.  The girls got to feed ducks that came right up to the camper, and do lots of swimming.  The best part was riding around the campsite on carts that you had to peddle to make work.
