It was star shaped with walls constructed of limestone shell that wouldn't crack. And the walls were over 5m thick on the outside. It had a gun deck lined with canons and sentry posts and a mote.

It was a long day, but we saw a lot and learned a lot about the history of St Augustine. Tomorrow is a travel day to Brunswick, Georgia. We will be stopping at The Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge en route for lunch and a boat ride.
