a.k.a. What I did on my summer vacation.
I was on vacation last week too. Fortunately, I enjoyed myself a bit more than Creepy Cranky-Guy. I had a right fine time.
Steve and I started out by having lunch at one of our favorite places.
There's nothin' better than the "sticky biscuit" at Maple Street Biscuit Co.
|"HEY! That's not BIRD on that sandwich, is it?"|
Then while we were still in Jacksonville, we made a stop at A Stitch In Time for a little stash enhancement.
|Don't be jealous Flo, but there's a NEW flamingo in town.|
Then it was off to the ferry to take us to our island get-away.
Some of us relaxed during the wait.
(Unlike some cranky people.)
|Enjoying the sunny, blue skies.|
|Hanging out on board the ferry.|
We went kayaking* along Egan's Creek in Fernandina Beach.
Fernandina is one of our favorite places to visit and
seeing it from this new perspective was AMAZING.
|Watching the egret *shop* for lunch.|
|THEY CAME FROM THE SWAMP|
(hear that in a spooky-creepy voice)
|Steve and the giant dock shrimp.|
|Jousting? Probably NOT a good idea.|
Doesn't mean we didn't consider it for a bit.
|Look out weeds --- here I come!|

After a couple of hours paddling, we spent plenty of time relaxing at the local coffee shop and, of course, KNITTING!
The Great Sock Race of 2015 is coming along just fine.
But, THAT'S another story for another day.
*A great big thanks to Aaron from Amelia Island Kayak Excursions for the fabulous day on the water.
