Each year we try to take a trip to Florida to see friends and family. We usually stay in the St. Augustine area, but this year we decided to rent a place on Amelia Island near the Florida/Georgia border. The town of Fernandina Beach is there, and has a rich history as a port and fishing village. Each year they host a Shrimp Festival that is definitely worth checking out. There are plenty of places to stay, beautiful beaches, and less traffic than in other Florida resort areas.
While I didn’t do any fishing (the only fish I saw was on a plate), I did keep up with my running program. Luckily the Egan’s Creek Greenway was nearby, and I was able to get up early enough to see some welcome and not-so-welcome sights. Enjoy!
