Hello: I want to thank the entire staff @ Castillo San Marcus for excellent customer service!!!! Two years ago, I spent two weeks in St. Augustine, FL. I was given a National Park pass, since I was a Veteran. This pass is good @ all Natl Parks, & will save you on entry fees. I visited the Fortress everyday, & photographed all of the Spanish bronze cannons. The Park staff, rangers, are very helpful & take extra care in the safety of all the visitors. I informed a volunteer, of a 24 lb bronze cannon on top deck, that was on shipboard. The area behind the touch hole, was ground flat. This was to mount a very large brass flintlock firing lock. Their were four screw holes to hold the lock in place. While checking out the moat, I observed a carved inscription, 15? feet up on the south curtain wall. I reported this to a ranger, & hoping they were able to find it ???? The live cannon firing is great to watch. The gift shop staff are also very helpful & have a lot of books, & little brass cannons, mounted on cast iron carriages @ a good price. The toy cannons make great paper weights. After we get this virus under control, I plan on another trip to the Fortress. Thank you all. Best/Wishes Charles Duane Romero Perris, Calif.
