Another Spanish Fort

02 September 2008 | Matanzas Inlet Between St. Augustine And Daytona Beach
Keith, nice
I'm anchored in a really cool place tonight. As you may know, Spain controlled Florida and other parts of what is now southern United States from the time Columbus "discovered" the new world in 15th century until the British and then the US took possession. The forts that the Spanish built are huge - European in their massiveness. In addition to the large fort in St. Augustine,there is a smaller stone fort along the side of this short river leading to a small inlet. The fort was constructed to prevent back-door sea access to St. Augustine. Crews and supplies from the main fort there were dispatched here to guard this inlet. There is a really nice beach on the inland waterway side (rare) that I dingied to with the dogs around dusk. This place is just dripping with history and we are docked less than 100 yards from the fort. People have been camping out in this otherwise isolated inlet for literally hundreds of years. Tonight it is just Jake and Anne and myself.
