Our last stop on this tour was St Augustine, Florida. It felt strange being back in Florida. It was like I forgot that all the plants and foliage was so vastly different than up north, and they grow in sand, not soil.
We had a quick trolley ride around the historic part of the city. First we drove by the Fountain of Youth. However, we didn’t stop and partake of the water, so we’re all still looking tired and exhausted and old.
There were some really ornate buildings in St Augustine. Here was just one of the churches. The trolley was traveling a little to quickly to take any decent photos of the others. And after a while, they all start looking the same, like fancy churches.
Lots of the buildings were somehow related to Henry Flagler.
Next on the agenda was the Saint Augustine Lighthouse.
After the lighthouse, we went to St George Street, a pedestrian only street. There are lots of historical building there, like the oldest wooden school house in the US.
We all met at the Columbia Restaurant for our official Goodbye Lunch. The Fantasy Ambassadors gave us little gifts, we gave them big gifts (i.e. tips). And we all discussed where we were going next.
After lunch, I packed up and drove back up to Savannah, Georgia. I drove the rest of the way home the next day.
Here is what my route looked like with all the stops. I drove a total of 3,165 miles.
I’m glad to be home. I gave everyone a hug, including the dog, then took a hot bath in my big bathtub and stretched out on my queen-sized bed.
