Yesterday was a long day of travel, across the country to St. Augustine. On my way over a bridge to St. Augustine Beach, I noticed the old lighthouse over to the left, so I drove over to check it out. This is a hand-hld photo out the window of my car, a bit after midnight this morning. I like the way it turned out, and look forward to getting some daylight pictures of th structure soon. I've heard that a walk up to the lamp room is worthwhile as well.

St. Augustine has a nice beach that seems to be fortified mostly with berms of old concrete construction materials. Lots of interesting birds, including royal terns and two different types of gulls: one with some light brown feathers highlighting the usual white and gray; the other with a dark black head. Also a couple of different types of small sandpiper-type birds. I took some photos, and will look them up later. Saw a few pelicans and ibises flying by as well.
