We had a couple hours to spare downtown St. Augustine before meeting up with Gary to go on top of a roof to photograph miniature engineers working on solar panels.
Anyway, we felt carefree and curious that morning, every nook and cranny we explored.
We peeked through a gate and saw a table full of alligator heads for sale. There were so many that we wondered about their authenticity. Kurt smelled the head first and held it up to my nose, yeah, it's real! My next question to Kurt was: do they kill the alligators to sell them or do they sell them because they were dead from disease, age or accident?
As we were taking a rest, Kurt noticed the front cover of a community newspaper. Very humorous! Or maybe they're serious!
At the corner of Cordova and Orange St. we saw two trees entwined, both alive, both healthy. They call it the Love Tree. A palm tree is growing in the heart of an oak tree.
Off to the side in a sheltered nook, the bear was standing. We did not count how many beverage cans were glued on him but there was a lot. Everyone wanted their photo taken with the bear. We waited our turn and snapped a quick shot.
