St. Augustine Florida

While down in Jacksonville for work, I managed to get out to historic St. Augustine. It’s the oldest city in the USA!

Here are some of the scenes from the city…

Birds of Northeastern Florida

28 10 2012

I was down in Jacksonville for work for about 1.5 weeks.  Our office was right next to a little swampy pond area.  You didn’t need to go far to see some cool birds.

I also got down to Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve which provided some nice opportunities as well.

There are a whole bunch on my Flickr Set, but here are a few samples:
