This land is your land!

Fort that protected the coastline.
 
Current housing 
 
 
This is where the wealthy live, 7-8 grand a month! 

                                                    
 Centuries old historic cemetery
 
 
Capitol building had fascinating marble, art work.
 
The ceiling tiles were imported from Italy. The mural a reminder that I walked the same ground that Christopher Columbus walked. Did you learn the song that I did in 5th grade? "In fourteen hundred and ninety two Columbus sailed the ocean blue..."
 
Amazing! Can you guess where we were? Go to the next post to see more photos.

Linda--Thanks for taking me along, via the photographs. It looks like a fantastic place to visit...

The fort is my favorite. Maybe because it was used to keep people away.
