Historic downtown Fernandina (covering a 50-block area) is full of charm, gas lanterns, and 19th buildings. Even some cobblestones. And the shrimp boats which have defined our heritage for hundreds of years are still here and serving us daily. Side by side with the charter boats (fishing and sightseeing excursion opportunities abound). There are even pelicans at the right time of year. The beaches aren't crowded. And traffic is a non-issue. Heaven!

The folks who are spending the winter in our unit don't have a computer, and they never plan to own one, so they won't be submitting a comment. But, they assure me that they love it. This is their second winter and they have already signed up for next year. I keep asking: "Are you sure you have everything you need? The answer is always Yes. "Is there anything I need do, or add, or change?" And the answer is always No. I won't submit their long list of accolades. Their repeated re-renting kinda' speaks for itself, don't you think?
I'll get around to uploading a photo --- someday. Maybe.
