As a child, I was very lucky to spend about six weeks out of the year on two very special islands: Pawleys Island, SC, and Amelia Island, FL. These childhood experiences gave me a lifelong love of the coast, which is quite apparent in Mother Osprey: Nursery Rhymes for Buoys and Gulls.
Nowadays, the South Carolina coast is much easier for me to visit. But every now and then, I still like to pack up the family and head down to Amelia Island. Honestly, I could never get tired of walking around Fernandina Beach. Here are just some of the sights from this past weekend.
