This is a view of Fort Marion. The bastion on the northeast corner has a two story watch tower. The other bastions have smaller sentry boxes on the outermost corners. The body of water is Matanzas Bay. On the other side of the bay is Anastasia Island, with the lighthouse shown in the northeast corner of the image. Beyond the island, the Atlantic Ocean is shown. The fort is on the National Register of Historic Places, and is a National Monument.
