Southern charm...Savannah

This was a surprising trip for us. Much of the unexpected. Charming and sweet. Even though the day was rainy and gray, the city glittered with beauty.

The Last Hoorah!?

This morning it was really warm and sunny. So we headed to the beach. This is the beach on December 2.

Upon arrival...


There were fishermen...


There were seagulls...


More seagulls...


And seagulls watching me.


There were dogs.


There were swimmers.


There were horses.


There were beach hats.


Upon leaving...quite a bit more people.


This fisherman tickled me...


Why did he tickle me? Well, he had on a gold hooded sweatshirt, royal blue velour pants, multicolor socks and rubber sandals. He stood in the surf fishing. When he returned to the beach, he filled his sweatshirt pocket with bait shrimp and headed back into the surf. Quite a sight!

The Christmas Parade of Boats

We went to the Parade of Boats on the St. John's River. It was a cool, quite night. Perfect for sitting on the dock and watching all the happenings on the river. Unfortunately, most of my night pictures of all the beautifully decorated boats didn't turn out. I included the one that did. Imagine that times thirty, and that was the boat parade on the river!

While waiting, we were witness to a multicolor sunset. And during the parade, made a wish on a falling star.

A Lazy Day

Saturday was a beautiful day. Sunny, warm with a soft breeze. We went to the Crab Shack for lunch, then headed over to St. Augustine. Here are some pictures.

Amelia Island

Between bouts of sickness and the red tide, we took a day trip to Amelia Island. It was a great day even though I felt really weak. The day was overcast and cool. It was nice to get out and see something different.

The trip involved a trip on a ferry. Normally I would of gotten out of the car to take pictures. Yesterday I just sat and shot from inside the Tahoe for the ferry ride.

River boats


More boats


There was a little park entrance we saw that allowed the vehicles to go on the beach. So we did. You had to have 4-wheel drive...we were good. Slipped into off road mode, and off we went. As we rounded a bend we were greeted with this.

Beach hostess


Along the beach front road were several beach access areas. This picture was taken when we stopped at one and walked out to the beach.
Rows of boardwalks


Soon we entered the town of St. Mary. It was such a picturesque little town.
