Fort Pickens was one of the four forts in the South to not fall to the Confederacy.
Look how pretty the water is!
I love this silhouette shot of the kids
Keenan with a canon
(The fort was originally built to hold 200 canons!)
The old architecture was Amazing - and quite overwhelming for the girl holding the camera! =)
I just loved this old brick
This cracks me up
... and this is a little freaky
Not sure what these outbuildings are, but doesn't the one on the right look like Green Gables??
Philip with a huge canon (it took ten men to operate this!)
The track it turns on
This corner of the fort was blown out when a magazine full of gunpowder exploded.
One of my favs
Love this one too
Keenan wanted his picture taken in one of the (now empty) gun encasement
... so of course Moriah did too =)
How gorgeous is this??
Aaaahh... makes me want to get married again, just to have my pictures taken here! =0)
Us in an archway
Three happy kids!
So much texture!
My imprisoned family
My handsome husband
I just happened to look up and see the kids walking like this
Philip and the kids in one of the creepier parts of the fort
These two tunnels lead to rooms that used to be filled with gunpowder. In the event that this section of the fort was taken over, they would blow it up.
As we were leaving
On the way home, the kids and I jumped out at one of the beaches to collect some seashells. We didn't find too many, but the kids sure enjoyed the gorgeous water!
