Valentine Vacation

I had the best Valentines Day ever this year. My sweet husband surprised me to a weekend getaway in Amelia Island. It was our first time ever staying at a Bed and Breakfast Inn, and we both love it so much. We ate at Arte's Pizza on our first night, and that pizza joint has some gnarly pizza! Found this amazing candy/coffee/ice cream store after dinner, and I was in heaven when Bobby bought almost a pound of chocolate-covered strawberry. Yum!

It rained all day on Valentines Day, but we decided to go ahead and check out the Farmers Market in the lovely downtown historic district of Fernandina Beach. The locals were very nice! Then we headed out to our scheduled excursion at the
Amelia River Cruises, which is really awesome to find out that the company is owned by the Kevin McCarthy's parents. You might remember Keith and Jennifer's wedding that I photo-shot last April in Fernandina Beach. Lovely couple! Keith's dad is also the captain of the cruise boat, and everyone, check out Amelia River Cruises next time you're in Amelia Island! :) Bobby and I had fun despite of the cold and rainy temperature.

Many people ask me if there is one lens that I would never leave home without. That would be my fisheye lens. I love it so much, and sometimes it has its own disadvantages. In this case, we had some dolphin sighting, and of course, I really couldn't get a good shot with the fisheye lens. ;-) We enjoyed the rest of the weekend just watching movies and enjoying the comfort of the bed and breakfast inn. I'm very happy to be living in Florida--beauty is literally just right outside the door :)

Ali, thanks girl! Haha.. I just noticed how his facial expressions changed from the first night we were there.. to the 2nd night.. and to the last day. Yeah, he was sick of me taking pictures of him by the end of the trip ;-) Funny you mentioned it, that's the only picture of us together during the whole entire weekend! ;-)

Gwen, we did, thanks!! :)
