REMOTE POSTING – FERNANDINA BEACH, FL.: It didn’t rain today! All the activities we wanted to do earlier in the week we finally were able to do. It started off with a trip back to Fort Clinch, which was much easier to see in the daylight. We walked up on the battlement and was able to see a great view on the Atlantic coast, but it didn’t last too long since it was so hot.
After a quick lunch back at the camp, we headed over to the beach. There was a lot of people there compared to rainy Thursday, but nothing compared to Cocoa or New Sermerna beach. We plopped our beach umbrella and chairs down Cocoa or New Sermerna beach. We plopped our beach umbrella and chairs down and Abby and Emily ran down to start jumping in the waves. In usual Isabel and Abby and Emily ran down to start jumping in the waves. In usual Isabelle fashion, she ran behind her big sisters and got bowled over by the first big wave. Fortunately, I was there to pluck her out of the water. The beac big wave. Fortunately, I was there to pluck her out of the water. The beach had a ton of broken shells which were continuously being pushed up on shore and it felt like walking on glass to get to the water. We had several hours of fun and probably stayed a little too long. Even with sun screen on, everyone’s face was really red afterwards.
Back at camp, we came to the realization that we were too tired to cook, so we headed back into Fernandina Beach to eat. We needed to get more ice for the coolers and to get gas for the truck, so we figured “why not”. We spotted an Applebee’s on the way to the state park so we decided to head there.. Now we are back at camp and are trying to get the girls to settle down for our last night before heading home.
