This is an altered photo from our recent trip to Fort Pickens. This place has stood the test of time. The arched hallways are amazing. It was a typical hot Florida day, the sun was beating down, and when you were in full sun, you were hot! Once you stepped inside this fort in the shade of the century old bricks, you were instantly cool! It was amazing the tempurature difference. It was a great day for wandering slowing through the corridors that once housed soldiers, amunition and guns. A history lesson, a photography session, and a day trip! We meanered through the entire fort, looking at the texture of the bricks, the drips from the limestone, and the nooks and crannys of the past.
If you are in the Pensacola area, it is worth the trip out to the Gulf Seashore to see Fort Pickens.
