The Fountain of Youth

Photos in this Gallery were taken in St. Augustine, Florida, in July of 2002. The weather looked uncertain, but it cleared up just in time. The photos are of the grounds of the 'Fountain of Youth', and of the town and its fort. Founded in 1565 St. Augustine is the oldest continuously occupied European settlement in the United States.
