ABC Wednesday: "H" is for Historic Home

An alliterative post for ABC Wednesday this week - "H" is for Historic Home. This is just one of many similar houses in olde St. Augustine - simple design, sloped roof to prevent rain water from accumulating and collapsing the ceiling, small balcony sticking out on the second floor, chimney at one end for cooking (if no detached kitchen) and heat in winter.

Visit the ABC Wednesday Blog here or here to all of the other posts for the week.
* A happy birthday also today to my wonderful mother who is, as always, 39 years old... or is it still 29? Either way, she's young. :)

Great you are photographing Historic homes, when they are gone they are gone forever, we are very good at getting rid of things without thinking do we have a record, so that you for your post.

Looks wonderful when looked at full size.
