Our second day in St. Augustine dawned with the promise of heat and sun! We set out to explore the Castillo de San Marcos. A national park, it's the oldest masonry fort in North America. It's constructed in the traditional Spanish style, with garitas (guard houses) on each corner.

After exploring the fort, we were off to lunch at a New Orleans' style restuarant
Of course, soon after we ate, Henry needed his lunch

After lunch brought another fun adventure for the O'Day family!
