This one is at the corner of 7th and Beech for those of you geotagging. And for those of you who just like pretty things, a reminder that the big antique show will be going on tomorrow at the Atlantic Rec Center and the first Amelia Island Garden Show will be going on next weekend in Central Park, just a short walk from the inn. Also next weekend, the first in the annual series of First Friday Sounds on Centre concerts will be taking place from 6-8. Be ready to dance and party with the locals. We still have a few rooms for both weekends - but nothing for the following weekend for the Concours d'Elegance. In fact, we have very few rooms available all week long. Northerners, take note. Don't let all of your neighbors beat you to the Amelia Island sun.
I created this blog for a couple of reasons. In keeping a commitment that I made to myself, I have been walking at least thirty minutes every day since the first of the year. On these walks, I get to stroll through what I think is one of the most charming towns on earth. On every walk, I see at least 10 things that make me smile. I intend to show you a photo of one of those things (person, place, animal, flora, house, event or scene) so that you can enjoy our town right along with me.
The second reason is so that you can keep tabs on my commitment to myself. I pledge to put a photo from the CURRENT day's walk on this blog every day. My goal is to begin running in about another month, so it could get tricky taking the camera along but I'll be thrilled to cross that bridge when I waddle over it. So....... no excuses. I invite you to keep tabs on me and to enjoy my little town of Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island, Florida right along with me.
I turned 49 today. This is my "before " photo. You'll see me again when I turn 50 - February 1, 2008. I hope you'll enjoy the journey with me.
