Fernandina, Day Four.

Saturday was our final full day in Fernandina.  We spent the morning at Ft. Clinch State Park, which is a trip we make without fail every single year.

Ben decided to bring his fancy camera and play photographer this year.  He broke out the tripod AND the level!

While he was taking pictures, the rest of us explored the fort.  If you notice Cassidy missing from the pics, it's because she sat the trip out.  She's not a big fan of the fort.

We were excited to find the Union soldier on our way out.  We look forward to interacting with him every year.

I'm so glad Ben captured the pic below.  It's a good illustration of how I spend a lot of my days.  :)

When we were finished at the fort, we got Auntie from the condo and headed downtown to try out Tasty's burger joint for lunch.  It was awesome and will definitely make the rotation next year.

We did a little shopping after lunch.  Here's my crew headed out and about:

We spent the afternoon at the pool before resting up, cleaning up, and heading back out to eat. :)

We tried another new restaurant, The Salty Pelican, for dinner.  It wins:  my favorite place to eat of the whole trip. I seriously can't wait to get back. Fantastic fish tacos!

It started to rain a little bit during dinner but we braved the weather and strolled to the ice cream shop for dessert.

Emmy was sweet enough to share her treat with Ben. :)

We got rained on just a tad before calling it a night and heading back to the condo.  The weather had cleared up by the time we got home, so while Ben put the babies in bed, I took Babe and Harry for one final beach run.

My girl loves the ocean.  Loves. It.

We ended the night, after the kids were in bed, by watching Sharknado.  And that's all I'm going to say about that.

We drove home on Sunday.  Boo!

Until next year, Fernandina...

Thanks for the memories!
