Almost a month spent in this area, mostly at Anastasia State Park, and some at the local KOA. Anastasia is a very popular park and while quite a few sites are occupied by snowbirds, during the weekends the park fills to capacity with locals. It has miles of natural beach, bike paths, and kayaking. John met up with some dolphins while kayaking in the “Salt Run” but not close enough for a good picture. Like many popular state parks in Florida you must reserve early (11 months in our case) in order to secure a spot. Near the entrance to the park is a preserved Coquina quarry, a material used in the construction of the Castillo de SanMarcos and many other buildings in the historic Spanish Quarter. Just outside the park is the St.Augustine Alligator Farm with over 300 alligators, crocodiles, and caymans from all over the world. Next stop..Suwannee River State Park.
While we were at the Alligator Farm we were lucky enough to catch the daily alligator feeding time, check out the video below.
