Mr. Squareview and I are back from a much needed vacation/birthday celebration. We flew down to Amelia Island, Florida and met up with my in-laws for a relaxing & fun filled trip.
The walkable downtown area of Amelia Island is full of cute boutiques, restaurants, and watering holes to explore. If you're there, definitely check out the shrimp trawlers and sunsets from the balcony of the Salty Pelican Bar & Grill.
Lately, we have been trying to stay at condos instead of hotels when traveling. Its not always possible, but when it is, it makes your trip so much more relaxing. You're able to wake up and get the day started gradually with your coffee & breakfast on the balcony in your PJs. It's also fun to end your day on the same balcony with a cocktail or two. We stayed at Ocean Place and loved it. We were right on the beach and our views were spectacular! Especially, the tortoises.
Mr. Squareview had one request for his birthday. He wanted to do a little fishing. Originally, we were scoping out charter boats to go out and do some deep sea fishing, but we were in such a lazy day frame of mind, we ended up just doing some surf fishing. It was my first time & I really got a kick out of casting the line. Baiting the hook, not so much. I left that up to the hubby & Father-in-Law Squareview.
We were most surprised at the weather. It was mostly cloudy every day with either a light or heavy breeze off the water. This made it really comfortable instead of hot and humid as I was expecting. On the breeziest day, we got some pretty fantastic waves to admire.
Such a fun time. I would highly recommend a trip to Amelia Island. I can't wait to go back!
