Amelia Island Lighthouse, Florida






Amelia Island Lighthouse,
Address: 215 Lighthouse Circle, Fernandina Beach, FL 32034

The Amelia Island Lighthouse is the oldest existing 
lighthouse in the state of Florida. 

From our understanding it is a private residence and not open to the public, it is in a well gated area, u figure that one out??! ...what I'll never get about these historical locations in this world, why are they private, apparently Florida, sold this lighthouse, U SOLD IT? really??! I would think if you did in fact sell it ..maybe state that u have to allow your visitors to still have the chance to see it .. takes some pics ...something??! Seems so silly, dumb even. They have to know that the public wants to visit and take pics??! They just have to? RIGHT??! but there is no way to get a great shot, unless u have a super powerful camera ... it is just not cool! I got a white bird ...bird people what kind is that? I noticed it when I was preparing these pics for this post ... didn't even see it when I was taking the shot?? How cool is that!!!!??! I just found another shot of the lighthouse, that I took on another day and got from a totally different viewpoint .. so awesome!! I wonder why it looks like it is leaning??! weird, huh??! Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( ;

That is strange that the state would sell off property like that and then not allow you to get close enough for pictures. The bird could be some kind of Egret or Ibis.Hard the tell from this distance.

What a beautiful lighthouse!

Seems like the state should have kept it since it is the oldest one. My guess on the bird is egret.

Hello,

It is a shame the lighthouse is private. It is beautiful. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

Maybe the light house belonged to a private family from the beginning...

Biltmore, Asheville, North Carolina

This was my 2nd trip to the "Biltmore" Estates. Last visit was in November (not sure of the year?, but I was not blogging at the time.) Photos are only allowed outside the home. NEVER INSIDE. Which I was hoping they would allow photos of the Downton Abbey clothing but nope. no go. Not sure how other folks who have shown pics on their blog of the outfits have gotten past those rules???! 
The positive is my Mom & I have lots of great fun memories. We went as an early birthday present for me thanks to my hubby & my parents. So sweet! Mom & I had a fun girls times together. I knew the Downton Abbey clothing would be there until May 25th, 2 days after my birthday... so I wanted to go before they left & my Mom is a super Downton Abbey fan ...it was a must see for the both of us. So so fun!!! 
What I love about this home, you drive into that gatehouse at the top & then suddenly you lose all the traffic, the city sounds & noise ...you drive through the farm …

Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, Hayward, Wisconsin

"Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame", Hayward, Wisconsin. i am not a fisherwoman, but i have always been amazed by folks who do fish. all the hard work you do to make those stats. i must say i would prefer to see all these fish in the sea. not on the wall like this ...but what can you do? have you ever seen any of these fish alive before? this salmon above is so cool!!

did i mention that the hubby had a speed boat when we 1st started dating. it was awesome. but i always thought it needed to go FASTER. i love a fast boat. then the goober sold the thing. i miss it big time. he got rid of it because we didn't use it enough. kind of hard when you don't live near any BIG bodys of water. guess we need to move. he loved all the boat motors at this place. i now own a huge SD card of boat motors, what??! yep, i do. any one else in the world who can say that, can YOU say the same thing???!!!??!!!!

do you love to fish? Beth ( :

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece.
