We visited the Kingsley Plantation outside of Jacksonville, Florida (a national park) and took the audio tour of the property. It is a very interesting story in history; a little different than what we think of the history books. A humbling experience to see how the slave life was when Florida was owned by the Spanish and later when Florida became a United States Territory.

Here is a link to a brief overview

After visiting the plantation, we went to the Sandollar Restaurant for a drink and snack before taking the St. John’s River Ferry over the river.

A fun and educational day.
