I'm sure everyone had a spectacular 4th of July this year! Mine was spent a bit differently than my usual day at the beach. Since moving to Amelia Island, I have come to love the quiet, non-crowded version of a beach day. My kids can run wild and I can still watch them, unobstructed, sitting perched on my beach chair, sipping my Pellegrino while shielded from the Florida sun by my little 8 foot umbrella . . . That is not a reality during the July 4th week on Amelia Island.
