Amelia Island–Day Five

z pulled out the crab hat this morning. Uh oh, someone is crabby. That someone was me. The night before I had agreed to get up with z to go play tennis before it got too hot outside. This meant…no breakfast or COFFEE. He kept his distance…

I cheered up a bit when we got to the courts. It wasn’t too hot and we packed ice water! We ended up playing for an hour and got a few good games in. By good I mean…I hit the ball over the net a lot but z won most of the games. We had a good time but it started getting hot and I didn’t want to put the crab hat back on!

Time for breakfast (finally)! We headed downtown to Amelia Island Coffee!

After breakfast it was…you guessed it: BEACH TIME!! We spent the rest of the day reading, swimming, and sunbathing! I finished two books: Heart of the Matter (meh…) and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle (LOVED IT!!!!).

After the beach we decided to cook at home again! But first – Cocktails.
