Amelia, you are a beauty!

Rain is in the forecast, the temperature...chilly by our standards, the view...


We are in our "happy place". Yesterday, we drove up to Amelia Island. 

The venerable old live oaks, draped in Spanish moss, line the entrance to our very favorite hotel.

We counted up our stays here and came up with a nice round number...ten. The staff calls Annie by name and she loves it. 

Looking out...

That's the Atlantic out there beyond the palms.

Shortly after arrival Annie and her dad head for the pool.

Looking in...

Deep in conversation about serious matters, no doubt.

They had the place to themselves.

I took a stroll and visited some of my favorite works of art.

These bronze turkeys are magnificent! The never let me down!

Glad someone else has to keep this beauty clean and sparkling!

Yes, we are in our happy place!

Hope you are in your happy place, too! Have a great weekend!

Enjoy the day,
