A Walk Through Yesteryear

Last Wednesday my mother, sister, and I took advantage of some free time to explore the historic downtown area of a neaby city. While our Florida coastline doesn't hold much in the way of history (our hurricanes have taken care of that!), a few square blocks of our city offer a respite from modern life.

I fell in love with this church the first time I saw it several years ago. Built in 1832, it's the second-oldest church building in Florida and it resides just a few hundred yards from the Bay. Inside, Gothic rafters span the vaulted ceiling:

Simple and lovely.

A fountain in the park across the street:

A few blocks away from the church, this 1825 beauty also has a view of the Bay:


My sister and I relaxing in the Historic District:

Pretty in Pink:


  1. Beautiful photos! That last one is particularly stunning... such gorgeous lighting!


  2. What beautiful flowers! It's such a comfort to see them. What a happy reminder of God's renewal and blessings!

  3. I love taking pictures of flowers -- they always look pretty, and the lighting is usually fabulous :) I think my camera is on Macro Mode about 99% of the time!

    Yours in Christ,


I'd love to hear your thoughts! Thank you so much for stopping by!
