I Am Trying To Keep Up, Amelia Island

There is light at the end of the tunnel. This is a tunnel at a Fort Clinch in Amelia Island. It has many hidden entry ways to the fort. This is Krystin my niece. We were walking up the stairs and I turned around and asked her a question and I thought this would make a cute photo. I like it. Well I found the outhouse. It didn't appear to be used as of lately, so I thought I would give it a try ;) Just kidding.
Austin said these beds aren't comfortable at all. I don't know how they slept on these. No Temperpedic here. Aidan didn't know what to think. He thought the place was a playground.
This fort was filled with many nooks and crannies. I wonder what it would've been like to live back in the days when the fort was occupied.I wonder what it down the left path? Maybe we can find out the next time?
Last we went to the beach. There are suppose to be shark teeth here on this beach. All I found were tiny shells and this cute little guy. He found himself a shell.
The beach was rough at the shore. It crashed hard and some people were knocked down hard. Krystin actually had cuts and scraps from getting knocked down and the shells hitting her really hard. She was not a happy camper.
In the end we didn't find any shark teeth. We are going to try a beach over by Tampa next time to try and find some. On my way out to this beach I was working on a purse I am making for my mom's friend. I haven't taken any pictures of it yet, but when I do I will post it. I am very behind on my posts. I have done so much this summer so far and I am working 6 sometimes 7 days a week. We are going out doing things when we get off work, as well as when I get a day off we are off. I will try to post more this week to catch every one up on what I've been working on. I am also weaving another bag for a friend of mine. It is made with natural dyed hand spun yarn. i love the amazing colors. I hope to finish that one soon. I am sure the new owner is wanting it. Until next time. Enjoy the time you have seeking out adventures in life.

Great pics - I love old forts, we have a running "gag" that we take a picture of Angie every year next to an old canon for our photo collage at the holidays ( we did one when she was three and then four - my brother is the one who asked where we were going to find a canon when she was 5 - he has the whole series of canon shots in his office)

I guess being able to work 6 days is a good thing in todays world, so go out and have some fun - don't worry about us - the blog will be here when the kids go back to school.

I hope you enjoyed the area. You were extremely close to me! The beaches here do have a lot of undertow and the waves can be quite strong. It can be tough for the little ones to play at the water line even!
