Ocean Anticipation

No matter how many times I walk over to the beach I absolutely love when I’m almost there and I catch the first glimpse of the ocean on the rise past the walkway. I get the same rush as I’ve gotten since I was a little kid. It’s great living in a place where you […]

I’ve walked a lot of miles on a lot of trails in the last year and this is one of my favorites. It’s called Willow Pond Trail and it’s about two miles from the entrance of Ft. Clinch State Park. It’s so quiet that you could have been dropped off in the middle of the […]

Amelia Island Plantation

We send lots of our guests down to this resort on the southern end of the island for some extra shopping, golf, dining or for a resort spa experience. We’ve got all of that in town but it’s nice to get a different perspective sometimes – particularly when it’s only 10 minutes from us.The island […]

East Meets West

Approaching the docks and looking west, I saw this fabulous sunset… …and after I turned around to come back, I looked east and was pleasantly surprised by this great full moon. Not a bad two-fer.
