During our trip to Florida, we stopped once again at the St. Augustine lighthouse. Temperatures were right around 100 degrees, so the climb up to the top was a little difficult for those who didn't enjoy the heat and humidity. After a few flights of stairs, you notice a cooling breeze, this is created by the hot air rising inside the tower; the cooler air rushes in to compensate for the rising hot air.
Once at the top, we were treated to a great view of the Atlantic and the surrounding St. Augustine area.
I created a 360 degree panoramic image from 17 photographs (one taken by each railing post on the tower). Click on the link below and once the image loads, click inside the image and drag the mouse left or right to move around.
