Thursday was our last full day at Amelia Island, so we wanted to spend as much time on the beach as we could. We got up, had breakfast and headed out. It was a beautiful day. You could go out very far from the shore and still be only up to your ankles in water. We found a huge shell and a sand dollar!
We ended up bringing our cooler to the beach and eating lunch out there. Finally we came in. We had dinner reservations at 7:00 so we decided to do a little more sighting on the resort. We went to the Nature Center which was really neat. They have a pond out back and there were turtles and you could feed them. Katie especially liked them!
After riding around for a couple hours, we headed back to the room to get cleaned up for dinner at The Verandah. It was a great dinner and we had the most delicious dessert. Some kind of grilled bananas in caramel in a tulip type cup. Oh my word it was a delight!
Back at the room, we started packing up to leave the next morning. Check out on Friday was at 11:00 and we got out about 10:00 I guess. We didn't stop 1/2 way coming back the way we did when we were going. We got home about 7 or 8pm and got all unpacked and the house straightened up before we went to bed. I had done the laundry before we left, so it was all clean...best thing EVER!!!
We lazed around on Saturday...did a few errands, ate out etc., Jenna registers for school on Wednesday and then 1/2 day on Thursday and full day on Friday. I'm supposed to have this whole week off of work, but I might be going in a couple days just to save up on my PTO for my South Africa trip...
I'm glad to be home, but I sure am gonna miss this place!
