Meet Star Waters!
Wow, is this totally awesome or what? I am so excited to be part of this new exhibit. There’s so much cool history to see and fun things to do!
As soon as I found out that archaeologists at the St. Augustine Lighthouse explore shipwrecks, I HAD to come check it out. After I got my junior dive certification, they even let me go out on their research vessel and dive with them on this old shipwreck!
I have to tell you, I am SUPER excited about this exhibit. All of the artifacts inside really show you what life was like for people in 1782. Plus, it also shows you how cool technology is used to find shipwrecks.
