Castillo de San Marcos

Castillo De San Marcos

When visiting St. Augustine, a trip to Castillo de San Marcos is an absolute must! A little history for you: The Castillo is the oldest masonry fort in the continental U.S. Construction began in 1672, back when Florida belonged to Spain. Over the years, the fort changed hands several times and when the U.S. gained control they changed its name to Fort Marion after General Francis Marion “The Swamp Fox”, a hero of the American Revolution. In 1924 it was designated a National Monument and in 1942 it was renamed Castillo de San Marcos in honor of its Spanish Heritage. Today, tourists flock to the fort to get a feel for American History and the Florida of the past.

I love the lines of this shot. The perspective makes the fort appear larger than life. I also love the texture of the 300+ year old brick that makes up the fort.

Wordless Wednesday: Blooms in West Circle

Walkway by the Water

A Walkway by the Water

This weekend I am enjoying all things Grand Rapids has to offer! This weekend is the Michigan Early Childhood Conference where preschool teachers come from all of the state come to share ideas for the classroom. This is always one of my favorite weekends of the year!

This photo was taken on a walkway above the Grand River behind the Amway Grand Hotel. I think the black and white really emphasizes all the lines in the walkway and the hand rail.

Windy City at Dusk

Windy City at Dusk *EXPLORED*

My most recent vacation was a weekend trip to Chicago after New Years. It was a busy, museum-filled trip with my favorite being a traveling Disney Archives Exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry. We got the CityPass for this trip and it really paid off! It didn’t make much of a difference at the SkyDeck or The Field Museum (although we did arrive at the Field in the afternoon when there was no line at all) but it really paid off at the Shedd Aquarium where the line was down the steps and people were waiting out in the open with slush falling from the sky. If you are planning on visiting Chicago and you want to see the sights without worrying about arriving early to avoid lines, the CityPass is definitely worth it!

This photo was taken near dusk on the steps of the Field Museum looking out at the city. I really like how the statue stands taller than the skyscrapers in the distance.

Spartans Will

Demmer Family Hall of History

Today is the big day for college basketball fans, The Final Four. To¬†celebrate The Spartan’s¬†underdog run, I’ll share with you a photo from The Michigan State University Campus. The Demmer Family Hall of History is located in the Scandalaris Football Center and celebrates memorable moments in Spartan Football History. On my visit to the Hall, I enjoyed seeing the Paul Bunyon trophy and the mural of the 2013 team.
