What a crowd for Sounds on Centre tonight! Tonight, Big Vic and the Screaming Deacons played "sock hop" music for the First Friday Concert on Centre Street. Poodle skirts, bobby socks, cats-eye glasses and more were on display at this event sponsored by the Doo Wop Diner. For those of you who don't know, this street party takes place every first Friday of the month from March through October. As you can tell by the crowd, this free event is definitely worth putting on your calendar.
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.
