Welcome to my "Florida" blog

Being a third generation Florida native, I'm completely enamored with the diverse beauty of this gorgeous peninsula. For most of the year the weather is divine which makes exploring its unlimited nooks and crannies fun and easy.

Wherever I go I appreciate nature and the world around me. Come along with me as I share the places I visit and perhaps a few other amusements I find interesting along the way.

Amelia Island


Fernandina Beach is just one of the many destinations you wouldn't want to miss on Amelia Island. This month the Christmas lights are up and they are sure to draw lots of oooohhs and aaaahhhhs.

We go there as often as we can. If we get near the Northeast borders of this beautiful state we drive to the downtown area of Fernandina Beach.

The marina is breathtaking as well as peaceful and relaxing.

Sunset. A stroll around the short city blocks of downtown appointed with quaint shopping boutiques. Fabulous restaurants.
