Biera Mar - between St. Augustine Beach and Butler Beach on Anastasia Island - was the first planned and platted community in St. Johns County in the 1920s, after the then federal land of...

I like the boards editing features. Being able to cut and past the specific comment or part of a comment you are responding to. I also like parts of FaceBook.
