Fernandina Christmas Lights Still Going

We love being told by so many locals – and visitors – how much they enjoy our lights. That’s why we’ll keep them going into January (if they’ll last). But we get to enjoy this nice view of Greg and Debi Roland’s house across the street every night. It’s a beautiful house even without the […]

Porcelain Christmas

Sanctuary

This little cat knows to go to her own Shangri-la on a warm, sunny, 81 degree day. Looks like a purrrfect place for a catnap to me. Our weather is so great that the azaleas are starting their show. It should start turning a bit more Christmassy soon though. Fairbanks House
