Beer Club

I’ve never been much of a joiner, but this club at Carolyn’s on Centre seems like a fun one to join…

Baby Spice

This is Baby Spice for those of you keeping track. For those of you new to the blog, we have a neighbor who kindly takes care of strays that have moved in under their house. They tame them and name them after Spice Girls.

Sears

And while we’re discussing “normal” things, we have a Sears too. It might set the record for the world’s smallest Sears, but we have one. It’s just a Lady Kenmore girl’s dream.

Movie Theater

Many guests ask if we have a movie theater on the island. Well, here it is. It’s got SEVEN screens! And two of them are currently showing Harry Potter just in case you can’t get three hours to string together at home to watch a movie. We even have popcorn. And a matinee is just […]

My Favorite Consignment Shop…

…is open! This shop is called “Buy Gones” and they’ve always got a great selection. For you Chico’s fans out there, they’ve even got a whole rack dedicated to that line.

Book Signing

I’m not sure whether writers and artists flock to Amelia Island or if Amelia Island brings out the writer and artist in our residents, but we’re fortunate to have plenty of both here. And they’re well-supported by the community. Books Plus, a wonderful independent book store owned by Don Shaw and his wife, Margo, hosts […]

Two – Island Sunset

There was a beautiful sunset shaping up tonight between Amelia Island (on the left) and Cumberland Island, GA (on the right). I took my walk tonight on the fishing pier in Ft. Clinch State Park, which is on the northern tip of Amelia Island. We’re looking across the Cumberland Sound toward Georgia. I had hopes […]
