So sorry for my unscheduled hiatus.. but I'm back and blogging with a vengeance. And just in time for Lulu's Bra and Grill reopening. Old timers will recognize that there's no typo there; it's just a great name. And we're thrilled that after an eighteen month (?) stretch of no Lulu's, we've got it back. Co-owner Melanie (pictured) tells me that she and her husband are downsizing from a 350 seat restaurant that they own on the Potomac River in Virginia. They had a "soft" opening today by just putting out their sign and seeing what wandered in. By the looks of things when I wandered by on my walk tonight, they're not going to have too much trouble getting the word out. Welcome, Melanie and family, and welcome back Lulu's. You've been missed.
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.
