The Last Night

Is here and we're finally home. Little Bit is watching a movie, Casper I think, Sweet Wife is in the laundry room, and I'm here to post pictures for kymber.

Today, as you know, we took a day trip to St. Augustine in order for Little Bit to see the lights. Here are the results. Please forgive my less than adequate photography.

Above, the cathedral captured in the setting sun.

Note the date. I love this old church. We just missed New Years Eve mass.

Little Bit and Nana shopping in the old slave market.

This shot was taken from the Salve Market. In the background if you look close you can see the Bridge of Lions.

The front of the Cathedral. Just about sunset when the lights flicker to life.

We took a quick break at the Bunnery. I bet you wish you had been with me when the picture was taken. That's a Sticky Bun coated in pecans and caramel with coffee, of course. We've eaten at the Bunnery for close to thirty years.

A blurred image of St. George street after sunset.

kymber, I thought you'd like this Christmas decoration made from local pieces of nature.

And here they are on a balcony.

Just another street scene.

I thought this was kinda nice. Wish I had a decent camera, then again I lack the skills to use one.

Above, look closely just above the building and see if you can spot the star in the western sky.

I took this shot of the oldest school house in America with tourist taking pictures of the oldest school house in America.

Head shot of Little Bit riding the carousel. She just about drove me crazy with her, 'Papa, please, can I ride the carousel now, ugh, please. Repeat every five seconds. She finally wore me down.

Bad shot of a carriage dressed for Christmas. Hey, it was dark.

At one point Nana and Little Bit noticed a shoe store. Guess what happened next. So, here I found myself, once again....Standing Outside, Looking In.

Goodnight, our year is finished. God bless.



  1. Stephen, that was really mean to show pictures of warm places with no snow and coffee.

    Hope you have a great new year.

  2. Alright, now I will have to go to St Aug tomorrow and check it out.

  3. Mudbug, short sleeve weather...girls were wearing, well, nice clothes...warm it was..and Happy New Year to you too.

    Duke, 'ole buddy, the lights go out tonight.

  4. Great pics. Have a happy New year

  5. Did that church sign say est. 1560. Holy crap thats an old. I would like to see a church like that they are cooler looking than the new churches. Also Happy New Year

  6. Corey, yes indeed. It was established in 1560, and is the oldest church in America. It is beautiful. Happy New Year to you too.

  7. Looks like a great time. Thanks for sharing.

  8. 45er, it was a good time, tiring, but good. Thanks.

  9. Thanks for sharing, Stephen. Such a neat town, isn't it? I miss being able to zip down there on a moment's notice. Had a lot of good times there.

  10. Kris, you are welcome, my pleasure. And, we did.
