Saturday, April 6 – Paul's brother has a beach house on Amelia Island, FL, so we decided to put the RV in storage at the Heritage RV Park ($20 for a week) and drive down to the Island for a week.

We've stayed at his beautiful beach home previously and have always had a wonderful time with family. This time we are the only ones at the house – tough to be retired.

Unfortunately, both of us came down with the stomach flu. It started with Paul and soon after Marsha was also barking at the toilet. Yuck, is that an awful flu. Worst either of us have felt for a long, long time.

We eventually got over it (about 48 hour symptoms) and enjoyed the beautiful, nearly private beach.


There was tons of sea foam this morning. Sea foam forms when dissolved organic matter in the ocean is churned up by wind and waves


We never experienced a crowded beach here on Amelia Island. The house is just a short walk over the dunes to the beach.

There is also a private pool, tennis courts, bike paths, and, of course, plenty of strolling and shopping downtown. There, of course, is plenty of golfing for those who enjoy it. Even a Ritz Hotel for the big spenders....LOL


This is our daily visitor. Boy does Bella go crazy when this guy makes his appearance.


Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day!
