Awesome Amelia

I know you probably think I went nowhere on my recent trip to Amelia Island but here... 


Despite the hours I was forced to spend conferencing with my beach chair, I did, indeed, sneak in a day in town.  The Historic District of Fernandina Beach is a 50 block area LOADED with amazing historic Southern buildings, restaurants, and shops (yes, I said shops!) tucked right next to the docks and surrounded by huge trees dripping in Spanish Moss.  


It is truly a magical little place... from the docks you can take a cruise over to visit Cumberland Island, (where JFK, Jr. held his super secret wedding) and watch the wild horses that live and play along the shoreline.  I didn't make that trip this time, but here we are (Curly Ruffle Butt is my niece) on a sunset cruise to Cumberland last summer... 


I had a great time taking pics with my Hipstamatic app of all the cool buildings...




Last stop... my FAVORITE shop for great secondhand finds, antiques, vintage furniture, jewelry, and more, Trailer Park Collectibles.  Once you go in, you may never come back out... and if you do, you certainly won't come out empty handed.
Just looking at this picture puts me in my happy place...
