Easter charms

We are spending Easter weekend in Florida, at the very north east of the state close to the Georgia border at a place called Amelia Island, named after Princess Amelia the daughter of George II.

According to my research Amelia Island is known for it’s shrimp festival, one of America’s most important petanque tournaments and is listed on Travel & Leisure as one of the USA’s most quirkiest towns!

It also supposed to have a load of deep south charm bundled together with all the laid backness of a Florida barrier island and a fair bit of mixed history thrown in as well. It claims that the French, Spanish, British, Patriot, Green Cross, Mexican, Confederate, and United States flag have all flown over it at some point.

We are going to plant our flag at the Ritz Carlton (photo) and do Easter things, whilst celebrating the other-half’s birthday and attempt to see as much of Amelia Island and neighbouring Fernandina Beach as possible.
