Lighthouse Pier

It’s been a topsy turvey year. So many things going to and many places were closed. Since hubs went on the Appalachian Trail in April, I’ve been busy working on his videos on our YouTube channel (Southeastern RV Living and Appalachian Trail Hiking), and haven’t been writing as much for the blog. Forgive me for that. I’m hoping now that we’re in Phase 3 of reopening here in Florida that I can venture out a little more between videos and write about it.

Today’s little excursion is directly across from my favorite lighthouse in St. Augustine. I never noticed it before this day of riding around. I had seen the beautiful water oaks across from the lighthouse parking lot, but without driving (or walking/biking) over there, you’d never notice the pier.

Across from the lighthouse parking lot, among the trees, are picnic tables spaced far enough apart to not even hear other’s lunch conversations. On this day, one family hung their hammocks up in the large branches of one of the trees.

Behind these beautiful trees is a small parking lot next to the Yacht Club that appears to have been closed awhile. Directly in from if the Club is the Lighthouse Pier and Intracoastal waterway (and smallboat ramp). It’s not a very large pier, and at high tide, there’s no sand spot to walk on. But, it’s a public fishing spot and at low tide, you can see oyster shells galore and hermit crabs all over the place.

It may not be a large spot, but it’s tucked away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. It’s a beautiful place to picnic and gaze across the water at lots of water fowl. If you’re in St Augustine and just want a quiet place to read or relax after climbing the lighthouse, this is a great place.
