We had planned a seven mile bike tour of Amelia Island today. We headed out early to beat the prediction of afternoon thunderstorms. Amelia is certainly a bike friendly island, having long ago established scenic pathways circling and crossing the island.
….we toured the beaches
…and the upscale amenities (Ritz Carlton Hotel) and homes.
As our bike ride expanded to restaurants and shops, we realized we had over-shot our original plan of seven miles – but the seafood nachos and a cold beer at the Falcon’s Nest made for a nice break!
The Omni Plantation Village was full of quaint little shops, markets, restaurants and spas. Karen and Moni had visited friends here several years ago so it was fun to see not much had changed. Life moves a different pace here!
Soon we saw the approaching dark clouds and realized we were still over seven miles away from the marina……and the weather prediction was right on time! Peddle fast!
We made it back only slightly wet from what turned out to be a 15+ bike ride.
….and now a READER ALERT – more useless information about low tides, high tides and trip planning……
