Rain Calls for a Change of Plans
While we had planned to return to our new favorite plein air location near Unicorn…
Dates: Sunday, September 15 and 22, 2013
Location: Community Park near Unicorn Rd. and Shore Dr.
Tomorrow morning the Anonymous Society of Artists will explore a new location for plein air painting, a neighborhood park near the corner of Unicorn Road and Shore Drive in the St. Augustine South community. The park sits on the water, where the mouth of Moutrie Creek empties into the Matanzas River. Artists may choose to walk down a narrow path out to a sandy beach to find a suitable view or work in the shade of a wooded lot. Although the park has no signage, the parking lot is easily visible from the road. See the lot on Google Street View.
To get to the park from Downtown St. Augustine, follow US 1 South toward Daytona Beach. You’ll pass Target, Flagler Hospital and Wal-mart. After you pass the Kia Dealership, turn left onto Gerona Rd. Take Gerona about 3 quarters of a mile and then make a slight left onto Shore Drive. Head south on Shore Drive for one mile with the water on your left and you’ll eventually find the park on your left, just a bit past Unicorn Rd. View these directions on Google Maps.
We hope to see you!
