It's December so we are once again in Amelia Island. 

We checked in here....our group has been coming here every December for so many years that the bellmen remember us and call us by name...they all remember Annie and she loves it! Wonderful folks here at this beautiful place!

Amelia Island is on the Atlantic Ocean...east of Jacksonville.

I'll be spending time here....drinking something warm!

The beach was deserted late's chilly and grey...perfect weather for a stroll.

The beach is so wide it takes a while to reach the water using the wooden walkways.

Amelia Island is one of our favorite spots...and this is one of our favorite hotels. It is decked out in all it's Christmas finery and looks so beautiful! 

I'll be snapping some pics and sharing them with you later. 

Annie and I will be hitting our favorite spots today...a couple of great antique shops are on the top of our list.

Welcome to my new followers and thank you to all you who take time out of your day to visit and say hello.

Enjoy the day,


  1. It looks like a beautiful place for sure. It's nice to have somewhere you go back to time and again.

  2. What a beautiful place...looks like you have a perfect view of how vast the ocean and skies are. Thank you for sharing...Blessings...Pam

  3. Morning!!!!! So pretty, that is a really nice place........Blessings Francine.

  4. Hi Robyn! Is that the Plantation? I had the pleasure of staying there once on business. Always wanted to go back with the family, but haven't quite made it.... Have a lovely time!
    Blessings, Patti

    1. Hi Patti. This is the Ritz-Carlton. We will be returning next and will be staying at The Plantation...looking forward to that!
      Thanks for coming by.

    2. Oh yes! I stayed there once on business, too! Both are so lovely! Now you have rekindled my desire to go there with family for fun :)
      I'll be taking notes on where to go shopping ;)

  5. Hi Robyn,

    Warm Hugs~~

  6. Hi Robyn, How nice that the bellman recognizes you and Annie. The hotel looks so beautiful from the outside. I can only imagine what it looks like in the inside.
    I hope that you can find some treasures on this trip.

  7. Cannot wait to see the pics Robyn. Lucky you! Have fun shopping...wishing I was able to go with you. Janice

  8. Can't wait for a virtual cyber tour....and see what treasures you uncover! That looks like a magical place. Hmmmm....I've never heard of Amelia Island before. Guess you really can't take the "small town" out of the "small town girl," hey? Happy travels....Tickle Annie for me! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
