It's Valentines weekend, time for the Amelia Island Lights of Love. For the past several years, when we've taken down the Christmas lights, we've left the red ones up just so we can have one more show for our island Valentines. When we started, I think that everyone thought that we hadn't taken down our Christmas decorations yet but now they're getting the hang of it and we have lots of folks driving by just like they did during the Christmas season. After all, who doesn't like a light show? Happy Valentines Day, everyone.
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.
