This is my absolute most favorite place to vacation, hands down. If I could move there I would, no kidding. It is just a nice laid back family vacation spot. We all *love* it there. It is a bit of a drive but so worth it. This year some dear friends of ours got to go with us, which made it even more fun. This was Mallory's first trip to the beach and the girl LOVED it. She ate some sand found some shells, tried to crawl in the ocean. The child has ZERO fear. Her big sister is a bit more cautious so this *no fear* thing is an adventure for David and I. So fun. I have an *all about Amelia Island* post in the works, favorite spots to eat, shop, hang out when not at the beach of course. There are so many wonderful people there, so nice too. All of the little shops downtown are just precious. We stayed downtown this time not at the beach, we always ended up downtown at night anyway walking around, eating dinner etc. This way if the baby got tired one of us could take her back to the room. So nice.
