Fort Matanzas

Fort Matanzas

I discovered that fort on Route A1A, on my way from Miami Beach to New York, on January 01, 2013. Built on the Matanzas River between 1740 and 1742 by the Spanish, it defended the south approach of St Augustine. Only 5 minutes to paint that watercolor. A Rotring “Artpen” came very handy to rush in sunset and closing time by the National Park Service.

  1. I was there when I was like 5 or 6, I was skinny enough to squeeze through the bars in the windows and have my picture taken… a prisoner of pirates
