Road Trip #2 – Thank You Kit & The Fountain of Youth!!

After our last trip to St.Augustines I was contacted by a lovely man called Kit Keating who is the assistant manager at The Fountain of Youth National Park.

He emailed me about Angel’s journey here in America and invited us back to the park free of charge, and wanted to buy us lunch (see everyone keeps feeding us!!!) at the five flags cafe!

So on our second day in St. Augustines we went on the red train back to the Fountain on Youth.

This time our trip was totally different, for starters it was a lot quieter and less crowded going on a week day. We were given guest explorer stickers at the front entrance… And walked to the fountain/spring!

We met an informative tour guide who explained the history of the spring and the well to us, and of course we all had another drink from the fountain. Bev and I thought it tasted ick! But we had a big cup full because you know… We’re not spring chickens!
