Today's scenery consisted mostly of marshland (how's that term for a New Yorker?) and not too much else. Since the scenery was so serene, we dialed up some disco music on the satellite, just to liven things up. Today's destination is Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island - a short cruise. We were tied up by noon in a marina that seemed to fill up as we got the boat cleaned off. What a pretty place - and just steps away from the cutest town with tree-lined streets and the quaintest shops. Right up my alley! After having lunch with the captain, Patti and I made our way ashore. Never mind the laundry I told her, we can do that later. See, I'm already in the cruising mode! What a lovely afternoon we had! I found a great little gift shop that had the most amazing carved birds. We visited the oldest saloon in Florida, took pictures with a stone pirate (he was quite cute) and enjoyed ourselves immensely. In fact, I made 3 separate trips to the store with the birds as I thought of different people to give them to. Even For Us got 3 birds of her own! I think the one in the photo is a willet. Don't know anything more about that subject, so don't ask.
Tomorrow is our day to return to the real world. Boo hoo.
