GutterPup -Great job sharing about the lighthouse. Anastasia Island, or known as "the Island" there has some pretty cool sights, beaches and restaurants. It's friendly and relaxed atmosphere is commented upon frequently and I found it's really true.Many people come back year after year and stay for months at a time. The historic sights of downtown bring people in, but the Island brings them back.

Thank you Travel Rob! St. Augustine is a place I visit once every couple of years, and I always include a visit to Anastasia.

GutterPup, You posted some great pics of the place. The St. Augustine Light is one of the 10 most beautiful lighthouses in the USA. I read that in a travel magazine, so this is not just my opinion. It's gorgeous! In another lifetime, ex-wife type other lifetime, we were going there for a winter interlude in February from 2002 until 2006 and we stayed on Anastasia Island, not far from the light. We joined the member society, bought bricks in our kids's names, and visited there frequently.

I appreciate your kindness I did notice all the bricks at the entrance with folks names on them, pretty cool. I haven't been to many lighthouses I must confess, something I hope to change, but this one was really fun and had tons of history behind it - I'm a fan!
