A day trip to Fernandino Beach, because, well, because it was there. A pretty downtown area:
It was spring break time, people were visiting, parking Jolly was going to be difficult at best (there are times when we have parking issues with this big green giant of a truck), so we opted to just drive around, and snap a few photos.
OK, I would have loved to stop and get a better photo of this and investigate any story, isn't it marvelous? Tile work supreme.
I love staircases, fences, plants, curves, balconies, this has it all, I just sigh at the beauty:
So, off we go to "discover" the beach. And, we found a parking spot! And, a dog friendly beach, see how the fur kids did over at Reflection's Flora and Fauna. That Gallagher, he loves the ladies, err, people. After their walk, we sat on a bench for a while, just enjoying the moments, Gallagher and Cappy did too!
Cappy, almost seems like he is saying, "nothing like a little surf and sea spray in your face, ahhhhhh".
We knew there was a lighthouse nearby, so, next we went in search of that. Found! Amelia Island Lighthouse. Unfortunately, the gates were all locked, but, I still got a pretty good photo (where there is a will there is a way, shoot right over or through the fencing).
An enjoyable day out, especially that dog friendly beach part! Good memories were made.
