I went to St. Augustine to visit and photograph the “Ponce de Leon Hotel.” My great-great-grandfather was a fresco artist who worked on the hotel's fresco paintings. The Ponce de Leon is a magnificent piece of architecture and a really wonderful artifact showing the opulence of its time. The wealthy icons of eastern families used to vacation here. Back in its day, the Ponce de Leon (now Flagler College) was the height of elegance.
St. Augustine is a truly beautiful city. The Spanish design of the buildings is so unlike anything else on the East Coast. We visited it again in July of this year. We stopped in St. Augustine on our way back from our honeymoon in 1988 and were anxious to see if the city was as if we remembered it. Happily, not much has changed.
