Augustine was an important development in the history of Florida, but even more important than the settlement itself was the European culture it helped integrate into the largely Native American-populated Florida. Menéndez de Avilés, hailing from Spain, brought with him the Spanish language along with the Catholic religion into Florida (“Latino American Timeline.”). Furthermore, future Florida leadership, for around the next two centuries, would continue to be of Spanish descent (“List of Colonial Governors of Florida.”). As a result of this, Catholicism and the Spanish language were deep-rooted in Florida’s culture back then, and in a way, they still largely are
HONK! BEEP! SQUEAKK! Every which way of me, cars are honking and breaks are squeaking but I don’t care because I see it, the best amusement park ever… Cedar Point! For the longest time had I been asking to go here, the day has finally came.
Saint. Augustine St. Augustine is a city of Florida, United States of America, in the region known as “the First Coast of Florida”. I’m going to give some information about this Founded in September 1565 by the Spanish explorer and admiral Pedro Menendez de Aviles, St. Augustine is the oldest city of European origin in the US territory permanently inhabited. St. Augustine is the oldest European settlement occupied until now in the United States. The Spaniards had previously explored the area in expeditions that took place between 1513 and 1563, in order to colonize the Spanish Florida, and directed by various conquerors: Juan Ponce de León in 1513, Lucas Vázquez de Ayllón in 1526, Panfilo Narvaez in 1527 -together with his sheriff Alvar Nunez
Grew up in a rural area a tiny place named Bird Cove, no roads nor electricity until in the 50th. Gasoline lamps lighted up the darkness of our homes. Wood stoves kept bodies warm during the day and at night. Kept the hungry belly filled to content because families were able to cook daily meals on the
From my cultural understanding of Lake Okeechobee, my imagination had conjured up swampy, reedy, you better have a fan boat, alligator infested waters. Cruising along the canal on the east side of the lake, there was very little swamp and plenty of wide-open land. Not at all what I expected for the interior of Florida. I wondered if maybe this was because it was a canal, instead of a natural river, and once we got out to the lake and river on the other side it would look more like I anticipated. I suspected it’s because this was a canal and many engineers and laborers had been employed draining the swamp around it. The night before we entered the lake, we anchored outside the levy. There was a big wall of dirt between me and seeing the lake, so I found myself full of anticipation for what it would look like.
Major General Michael A. Calhoun made and keeps making Florida a safe place to live, work, and raise a family. This would be by protecting us on the Florida National Guard. As a Major General he is in charge of protecting our state from disasters. As you can already see the importance is already at the uttermost high. As shown in PalmBeachPost.com it shows the importance of a Major General.
My Trip to Florida It was a cold winter night in Upstate New York. My mom and dad were enjoying a cup of coffee, my sisters were playing video games, and I was editing a few pictures on my computer. My mom brought up the idea of a vacation. She said” We haven’t been on a vacation for a long time”.
I have always thought of going to kings island until i was told i was going to go this summer. When i was told i was going to kings island i was so excited, i had never been to an amusement park or anything like kings island. I was told i had to go to bed really early because if i didn 't i would be really tired, because you have to walk around a lot at kings island and it is a huge park. It took about two hours to get to the park which seemed to take forever but we finally made it there. I had never been on a real roller coaster before so my brother chris figured it would be better if we started off with the wooden rides and work our way up and also we had fastlane passes which let you practically cut the whole line, but we rode all the wooden rides first, the first one i rode was the adventure express which was really cool. And then i rode the rest of the wooden rides and then i went to big rides. My favorite ride out of them all was either the firehawk or the vortex both were super fun.
When I Went To Florida I went to Florida after 4th grade in the summer. When we went to Florida, Jaxon my sisters, brother came with us. The night before we left he stayed at my house. When we left the next morning we left at 3:00 A.M. While we were on our way we both had to sit in the very back of the car because my sisters came with us. The ride there was not fun at all.

In spring of 2013, I went to Hawaii on the band spring trip and I loved it! We spent a week there and I cried when we had to board the plane back home. People see pictures of how beautiful it is over there, but they just do not do the Aloha state any justice. Like Hawaii the Florida Keys has beautiful waters, and wildlife. I have always dreamt of living on an island and if I had to choose a place it would be one of these two. Many people do not have the luxury of living in some of these places because of their financial status. While I have been to Hawaii I have never been to the Florida Keys. As I would love to go, I am not financially able as of 2015. On average a 1 bed and bath in the keys ranges from $200,000 -305,000. In Hawaii yes they
Vacation. The time of year you get to relax and not stress about your upcoming test or homework assignment. Going on vacation was favorite traditions ever since I could remember. The tradition started when my Mom’s parents took her to Sanibel island in Florida, after driving for a little bit off the island they found a very small island called Captiva island. This little island was filled with houses, shops, beaches and many restaurants. They loved it so much, that every year they decided to go back.

Yes, I'm going to Lucky Eagle on the 10th; that's my standard casino bus trip. However, the more I go to Red Wind; the more I like it. Their new non-smoking section is bigger and much nicer. Maybe some day, you can join me on that trip.
