Amelia Island Part 1

We just got back from a lovely vacation with our friends at Amelia Island, Florida. Of course I took hundreds of pictures, and thusly I’m going to divide this into two posts, heh heh. Get ready for a huge photo dump!

Pictures from the drive there…

My siblingsΒ counted different kinds of trailers on the way there and back, keeping tally with a dry-erase marker on the window. They got a lot more than this till the trip was over. πŸ™‚ (And yes, they did manage to get one truck honk in the end. XD)

Now we’re at the island! The trees at the resort are GORGEOUS, allΒ old and gnarly,Β and covered in ferns and dripping with Spanish moss. It makes the whole place look really neat and mysterious.

And now for tons of beach pictures! You will be proud of me, guys: I managed not to ruin my camera this time like I have at pretty much every other beach vacation. XD

Going down the boardwalk…

Look what we found!


This beach is absolutely gorgeous. β™₯

I love all the shells along the beach!

Isn’t this neat? You can’t see it too well in the picture, butΒ I found a hollowed out shell that fit me perfectly as a ring, like it was made for me! Maybe it was. πŸ™‚ Wow, my fingers look weirdly long in this picture. O.o Probably because they are.

Can you spot the pretty little purple cochina shell?

It’s amazing how powerful water can be.

And we’ll end with this cute little tree frog we found stuck to a window of the beach house. He’s all tucked into a little frog package. πŸ˜›

Whew! Done with the first part! I hope you enjoyed. But I have to say, I think the rest of the pictures are even better. πŸ˜‰ I can’t wait to show you!

What is your favorite part of the beach? The waves? The sand?Β The shells?

Thanks forΒ visiting and see you later, dear readers! πŸ˜€

  1. Aah, your beach photos are so pretty, Allison! My favorite is this one:×853.jpg?w=656&zoom=2
    Did you collect seashells? When my family went to the beach (a loooong time ago), I collected lots and lots of seashells, and I still have them. πŸ™‚
    P.S. I just wanted to make sure you know that I sent you an email a little while back. Hopefully it didn’t go in spam or something!


    1. Thanks so much, Sassafras! πŸ˜€
      Ooh yes, I really like that one too!
      Yep, we did collect a few seashells. Maybe I can show them in another part. πŸ™‚ My friend even found a shark tooth!
      P. S. Yes! I did indeed get your email, although I believe it went to spam first. 😦 I’m sorry it’s taking so long to respond! But I’ve been working on it since we got back from vacation, so I should be able to send it soon! πŸ˜€

    1. Thanks so much, Charis! I know. 😦
      YES! Florida beaches are great because the water is so warm, unlike, say, the Maine beach we went to. *shiver* XD
      Thanks, and me too. πŸ™‚

  3. Oh! I love Anna Maria Island!! The gulf is lovely, isn’t it? Did you try any seafood while you were there? (Food is always a great topic. XD) Gorgeous pictures as always! πŸ˜€


    1. Well actually we went to Amelia Island, but Anna Maria Island sounds wonderful too! πŸ˜€ Yes, we did have some seafood, and it was quite yummy. πŸ˜‰
      Thanks so much, Nicole!

  4. I absolutely love the beach!! 😍There is so much about it that I almost can’t choose a favoriteπŸ™ˆ I love playing in the water, soaking up the rays on the sand, building little watery sand towers. I love to go shell hunting!🐚


  5. Ack! I said Anna Maria Island in my comment. XD Anna Maria is beautiful too. That’s so funny I got confused considering I only live an hour away from Amelia Island. Just read it and replace Amelia with Anna Maria. XD Did you find any shark’s teeth?


  6. NOW I WANT TO GO TO THE BEACH. XD These photos are so pretty! I love all the ones of the shells and, well, pretty much all the other pictures too. πŸ˜›

  7. The pictures of ‘rolling waves’ are awesome. I noticed some myself at a beach last weekend and was wondering what to call them. The best I could come up with was “little surfer-friendly waves” πŸ™‚
    Thanks for your blog. It’s just wonderful.


  8. This was so neat! All of the pictures were beautiful, my favorite was the shells and waves, I am so looking forward to that in two weeks when we go on our trip to Oregon! I am so excited!

    Looking forward to part 2!! πŸ˜€
