When nine visits turns into ten, we may never leave St Augustine again! Channeling The Barefoot Man here 🎶 for a musical note.
Anastasia State Park snuggles up to the St Augustine Amphitheater on where else? Anastasia Island reachable via the (opening) Bridge of Lions or the boring Rte 312 fixed bridge. I’d originally only been able to book two nights at the park but last minute got a third in our same spot.
Lack of snow and bone chilling cold does not impede southern-style Christmas decorating or activities, in fact it’s easier. Holiday-themed nightly events were being sponsored at the Amphitheater and fortuitously Wednesday night (our last night) would find Rockapella gracing the stage, with only a one song warm-up a cappella group. Santa, face painting and a train ride for the kids; food and spiked hot cocoa and coffee for the adults. That Captain Morgan sure knows how to warm you up from the inside out!
The Park was mostly full in the RV/trailer sites but the tent campers were wise to stay home during the extended chill. Our site was a bit narrow but plenty long enough.
The park offered one nature trail, which we enjoyed for its well and oft marked growing things.
