Crossing into Florida gives one the impression of having stepped back in time to a Jurassic Park era. Giant palms and palmettos, jungle everywhere. One expects either monkeys or dinosaurs to stomp through at any moment.

Then just as unexpectedly the ocean breaks through with all its beauty and lovely beachfront homes line the shore.

Had a beautiful morning bike ride along the shore road out of Jacksonville Beach. Then we spent the day in St. Augustine, Fl.

Drank from the Fountain of Youth, feeling younger and more spry by the moment, lol. We also toured the Castille de San Marcos. It is still quite impressive after 400 years or so.

Ended the day at the Hilton , Daytona Beach. :)
