Friday morning we took a bike ride to Starbucks for breakfast. We took a total of three bike rides during our vacation. I love riding bikes (even if it hurts my bum)!
Iced coffees all around! Hot Coffee + Hot Weather = No Bueno.
We attempted to go to the beach after breakfast but some rain and thunder chased us away! This was the only bad weather we had the whole week. It was probably for the best anyway since we’d gotten so much sun and z’s parents were coming in to town! When they had both arrived we had a pre-dinner cocktail at home and then headed downtown to Kelley’s Courtyard Café.
For starters, z and his mom got the Allie’s Salad that had baby spinach, green apples, golden raisins and honey toasted almonds in a poppy seed vinaigrette.
z’s dad got the All American salad with mixed lettuces, sliced tomatoes, bacon bits, mushrooms and cheddar cheese.
I didn’t get an appetizer salad because I was getting a salad as a meal! Allie’s Salad with blackened mahi!
z’s dad got the special which was fish fried flounder with jalapeno collard greens, coleslaw, and stone ground cheddar grits!
z’s mom got the special BBQ shrimp!
z ordered tortilla crusted mahi with black beans, rice, and mango salsa!
Another thank you to z’s parents for a lovely meal! After dinner we headed to Dog Star Tavern again for some post-dinner entertainment! There was a great band that had us dancing :)
Saturday morning was a sad day! Time to leave…
We headed to the beach one last time with camera in tow this time.
Here is our secret path to get to the beach…
Coffee at the beach!
So long Amelia Island! Until next time…
We got on the road around 11am. We stopped at Subway for lunch and then Moe’s for dinner!
Tofu bowl with lots of veggies and salsas!
We encountered a beautiful sunset that welcomed us back to Virginia!
We got home around 10:30 and went straight to bed! LONG DRIVE!
Oh, what a great vacation! It was so nice to relax for a whole week before returning to school!
Me encanta la playa!
