St. Augustine Day 1: St. Photios Greek Orthodox Shrine, Cathedral Basilica, and Ximenez-Fatio House

Daniel's list of things to do on this trip was to do a walking tour of downtown St. Augustine.  Some things were closed, the crowds on George Street with all the shops were quite a bit.  But we did find some cool places to stop in and experience. 

St. Photios Greek Orthodox Shrine

Cathedral Basilica

Ximenez-Fatio House Museum 

My chess enthusiasts pointed out to the curator that their chess set was incorrectly displayed.  One of the guides let Daniel help her correct their mistake.  She said after 10 years, they were the only ones that ever pointed that out.  Her husband is a historian so she totally got it!  

We found a pottery shop and Daniel found this really cool double headed flute!  He was really excited--his favorite souvenir.  JP had a great time,  too.
