The first two days we were here it poured but on the day before Thanksgiving the weather changed and it has been gorgeous. It is a bit cold for beach weather but it is sunny and beautiful.

We parked in a lot and strolled around the old part of the city.
There were many beautiful courtyards filled with tropical plants and running fountains. I love the touches of red in this courtyard.
|Restaurant Courtyard and Fountain|
There was one lush, tropical courtyard after another. This fountain caught my eye because the sun was shining down on it.
There were some beautiful churches in the area as well.
|Grace Methodist Church|
Plasa de la Constitutucion, the park across from the Basilica is home to an outdoor market said to be where slaves were bought and sold prior to the Civil War.
There are also many war monuments in the park including this one for the Civil War.
This place caught our eye but sadly it was closed.
We did spend a few moments at Crucial Coffee.
We finished off the day with a visit to the Anastasia Island Lighthouse.
Tomorrow- the beach!
