Our first stop once we hit the island was lunch at one of Natalie's recommendations, and man, was it tasty! I decided we should work off lunch by walking to Granny and Papa's old house on North 4th Street. Jeff protested that it would be too far to walk and I countered with informing him that I used to walk practically everywhere we went in Fernandina. He tactfully refrained from pointing out that had been more than 25 years ago.

We spent a couple of hours walking around town, checked in at our bed and breakfast, then headed out again.

Which leads me to the next event of the evening - dinner and a walk around the Fernandina Harbor Marina.
