Fernandino Beach, Florida

Copyright 2012, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

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.

I love the lighthouse picture. Not that your cute little fur babies aren't adorable but I have a special place in my heart for lighthouses. And this one is terrific!
