Amelia Island is Pure Heaven

At least at sunset in late March on a perfect 74 degree day.  May it come to your neck of the woods very soon.  You so deserve it… and we’re willing to share.  And if it doesn’t come to your neck of the woods soon, come share ours.  April flowers smell fabulous here. And the […]

A Different Kind of Easter Bunny

Alex, the Dog
