5 Days of Photo Challenge - Day 3 and Loving Life - #FuelTheCure

We are doing double duty today with our day 3 of the Photo Challenge and also joining  Oz and Sugar's Loving Life - #FuelTheCure - which is helping to raise money for cancer research into Dogs and Cats thanks to the wonderful support of Zukes. Please think about joining in as Zukes is donating $5.00 for each post - that is $20 if you do one each day it is running and the only thing you have to do is post pics of YOU loving life! You can also win some Zukes and we all KNOW who totally yum those are - so what ya waiting for?

Now one thing we do - is truly love life and we are loving it more than ever since moving to Florida and having so many amazing new places to go and visit. Today we went to check out Ribault Monument (which is actually just half a block from where we live)

Located on one of the highest points in the Jacksonville area, the Ribault Monument is a silent reminder of the years when France battled Spain for control of Florida. The column is a reproduction of a monument placed at the mouth of the St. Johns River, then called the "River May," by the French explorer Jean Ribault on May 2, 1562. Just check out the view - pretty cool huh and we must admit we LOVED sitting up there in the shade with a cool breeze blowing watching the world go by below

  8. That is a wonderful place to find. We love seeing different places around our world and the history that goes with the monuments. Lee remembers studying about the Huguenots who were French Protestants at the time of Ribault being here and fighting and starting settlements. Wish we could see it and walk it in the furs.
    Thanks for being a friend
