To St. Augustine (2)

Flying from Titusville to stop again in wonderful St. Augustine, we got a different view than on our flight South toward Grand Bahama. The thin line of development along a swampy coast was familiar, but with different light going North.

We saw Daytona Beach from offshore this time, and got a glimpse of the colorful waterfront attractions there.

A bit further along was this “dolphin experience” with tanks that seem to have an ocean view. I wonder what it’s like for the dolphins to see the open sea so close.

Before long we were lining up to land at St. Augustine, and this time we got a great view of the fort and the tourist district we’d strolled.

We love to see the same place from ground and air, because it somehow stretches the imagination putting you in two places at once.
