The Castillo De San Marcos (Spanish for "St. Mark's Castle") is the oldest masonry fort in the continental United States; it is located on the western shore of Matanzas Bay in the city of St. Augustine, Florida. The Red dot on the map below shows the location of St, Augustine.

Below: The tallest watchtower at the fort is on the corner facing the outlet to the Atlantic Ocean. Brian chose this as his first RV trip because he loves history so he really explored every available nook and cranny. (Of course, we did not know that we would be unable to ever bring Brian on another trip.)
