I have hazy memories from my childhood of an August vacation or two on Amelia Island for summer camping with my grandparents. What I didn’t realize then was that those vacations in Fernandina Beach, Florida would be some of my most cherished memories later in life. This summer, Superman and I set out to create family beach vacation memories of our own. There’s something about going in August – after the summer rush that thrills me. The following is part one of what happened when I returned to this Florida beach destination with my own little family!

My parents and I and my Aunt and Uncle and their kids would all pile in my Grandparent’s Winnebago and head to Amelia Island, Florida when I was young. My cousins and I would ride our bikes, the women would sunbath, and the men would fish for our dinner. Boy, oh boy, I had no idea that those were the good ol’ days, for sure!
Although the hubs and I didn’t follow this exact model for an August vacation this time around, we stayed in a condo on the North end of Fernandina Beach where it was very quiet. Ironically, the street to our condo was right before the one that leads to Fort Clinch State Park. When I saw that park sign, it made all my childhood memories come flooding back and I knew we had to visit – at least for a little while during our beach vacation.
