plein air - Fountain of Youth

What:   First 2017 Plein Air
When:  Saturday, February 4, 9 AM to 1 PM
Where: Fountain of Youth, St. Augustine, FL 

The weather looks perfect for Saturday, sunny and a high of 70. What a day for plein air. We hope everyone can just us at the Fountain of Youth in St. Augustine. It's located on the Matanzas River and offers salt marshes.

As well as exotic peacocks (both normal colored and albino white) strolling the grounds.

And folks in period costumes. See what Lyn Asselta said below  for all the details for what looks like being an excellent day:
Details:When you arrive, please pull in toward the left and back area of the parking lot. It's even better if you carpool with another FCPS member so we aren't taking up all their spaces. We can park in the bus area, just past the cafe, since there will be no school buses there that day. 
Gather up in the parking lot and Cindy will be there to check everyone in at the ticket area.  There is no charge for you to be on the grounds for the morning.
Please note that there will be a 16th century encampment going on while you are there.  The Fountain of Youth Park has requested that we paint on the OPPOSITE side of the park so as not to disturb the re-enactors.   
The rep from Fountain of Youth will let you all know where to paint. Please be courteous and remember that the park is open on Saturday and there will be lots of people coming through who have paid to be in the park.  
Since FOY is not charging us admission, please consider patronizing their cafe and buying lunch after you're finished painting.  You may bring a lunch, but please don't use the picnic tables on the grounds ~ these are for their patrons.
