Sweet Little Pocket Park

Over the last couple of years, Fernandina has been putting in a few “pocket parks” – little vacant spits of land between buildings that have been a bit of an eyesore in the past but are now quite lovely.  They’ve added grass, trees, benches and sometimes sculpture by local artists.  This one on Centre Street […]

Big Fish – Little Girl
