The White House Washington DC

No trip to Washington DC is complete without a visit to the White House. If you are lucky enough to get an inside tour that would be first prize. I think you would have to book ahead up to the month’s in advance. We were not so lucky but still enjoyed the view from the outside.

Make sure you pop into the White House visitors centre. There you can watch a video of the white house and it is narrated by past president’s and their wives and families.

Union Station Washington DC

Union Station in Washington DC is a tourist destination on its own. Plenty of food outlets, shopping and off course the metro and trains.
In the photo above you can see a row of soldier statues. When these were first erected shortly after the building was built they never had shields as you can see today. Well the complaints came in fast and furious and the statues were taken down and returned a few years later with shields.

Fredrick MD Trompe l’oeil Art

The Frederick Community Bridge is painted in a style which fools the eye. It creates the illusion of being 3 dimensional. The bricks, stones and images are completely flat. The style of art is called Trompe l’oeil.
The Community Bridge mural was completed in 1998.

The Edge Of Gravity Mural
On your way down S Market Street you will come across a fascinating piece of art. You may have to wait in line to pose with this floating mural. It has become a sought after selfie spot and Instagram photo.
The artist is William Cochran a local of Frederick Maryland.

When in Fredrick Maryland go to the visitors information centre and receive a free Frederick walking tour guide map. We spent hours talking in the sights around the historic old town.

St Augustine Villa Zorayda

The Villa Zorayda was the brainchild of millionaire Franklin W Smith. After a visit to Granada in Spain he wanted to bring this type of architecture to St Augustine. You will notice that no two windows in the building are the same. This was supposedly created to confuse the evil spirits.

Villa Zorayda St Augustine

It was the first ped concrete structure in the nation dating back to 1883.

Today you can take a self guided tour in the building. You will see an impressive collection of Spanish and Moorish items. There is a rug on display that predates Christ.

St Augustine The Lightner Museum

The Lightner Museum St Augustine

The Lightner Museum was originally Henry Flagler’s second hotel the Alcazar. It was bought by Otto C Lightner in 1948. Otto Lightner was a collector of collectors collections. He amassed an amazing collection of art, glass works, furniture and much much more. There are three floors of these collections to browse through.

The building also currently houses the St Augustine City Hall.

St Augustine Flagler College

The Flagler College we see today was in fact the Ponce de Leon Hotel built by Henry Flagler. An outstanding building with all the modern essentials at the time like running water and electricity. In fact the hotel had electricity before the White House. Henry Flagler actually got Thomas Edison to bring electricity to the hotel. Funny thing was that he had to employ staff to switch the lights on and off for his guests who were afraid on getting electrocuted.

So elaborate was the hotel he got Louis Tiffany to do the decorating. You can see the world’s largest collection of Louis Tiffany glass on your visit to the Flagler College. The glass in what is today’s college dining room is said to be worth over $40 million dollars.

Henry Flagner wanted St Augustine to be the playground for the rich and famous. He made the mistake of building the new hotel near the local jail. Anyway he got the jail moved tho North town and rebuilt. He did however insist that out did not look like a jail from the front and putt off his new guests arriving by train
