What a perfect weekend it was for the 2011 Amelia Island Shrimp Festival! There was a threat of rain for the parade Thursday evening but it cleared up the instant that things got underway. After that it was blue skies, pirates, shrimp, art, music and 150,000 people
We always have a great crowd for Shrimpfest but this year we had five couples who had stayed with us before and five couples who used to live in Fernandina. We've always felt that Shrimpfest is Amelia Island's Homecoming, but this year the evidence was clear. And you're all welcome to join them next year.
