Nestled in the north-eastern part of the state of Gators, St. Augustine is the oldest European settlement in the whole of America. Its scenery and history set this city apart from any other in the country. This small town has a quaint feel but boasts a big appeal. The brick-lined streets, see the horse-drawn carriages, humongous cannons, centuries-old buildings, impressive fort, and of course the bustling restaurants, attractions, shopping, art galleries, and more. If you are a history loving couple, then tie a knot in St. Augustine and its going to be a dream wedding!

We were running late for our parasailing appointment which was scheduled at 4:30 PM. It was exactly 4:30 when we reached our destination. We immediately changed our clothes and a boat came to pick us up. By the time we were done with all the activity the time was 5:30. I always wanted to see a sunset or a sunrise at the beach. We tried it before twice, once in Miami and once in Keywest, but there were clouds all over the sky not letting us enjoy the beauty of the sun. So we thought of trying one last time. We checked on the internet and it said that the sunset in Naples is at 5:47 PM. We had 17 minutes left. We immediately started in our car to reach the sunset point. We reached there at 5:45. Only two minutes left until sunset.We both started running to reach the beach. I was able to see the water. The water was very clear and the sand, it was as white and as soft as flour. We ran as fast as we could. People were already there to watch the sunset and many of them were senior citizens. They all came prepared with chairs. The sunset has already begun. I looked at the sun. It was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen in my life. The sky was very clear and the reflection of the sun in the water made it more beautiful. It lasted only few moments but I can never forget what I saw. It is the best part of my trip. After it was done all the people present there started clapping at that magnificent sight.We did not get a chance to take pictures since the phone's memory was full at that time but who needs photos when I have captured it with my eyes and stored it permanently in my memory.
