Babymoon

Babymoon. I highly recommend it!

The excitement of Baby Snowden’s arrival has reached an all time high around our house and with that Honey and I also have a lengthy to-do list. Our Babymoon allowed us to relax…get away…reconnect… and just BE. 

So what’d we do? Where’d we go? We went to Amelia Island, FL. We had never been there before, the plane ride was one hour and ten minutes – can’t beat that when you’re expecting – and there is lots and lots to do there!

Here is our Babymoon in pictures, enjoy!

We were on the island by 11 AM having a wonderful lunch!

Our first dinner night at Brett's - great view of the sunset!

We toured Ft Clinch - my Army Major made a great tour guide!

We kayaked Lawson Creek - so beautiful!

We discovered this railroad track bridge

Happy Honey!

We watched a gorgeous sun rise on Monday morning
 On Monday, our last full day of vacation, Honey planned an amazing day for us over on Cumberland Island. They only allow 6 people per day to come to the island as day guests of the historic Greyfield Inn - formerly a private residence owned by the Carnegie Family. The island is filled with wild horses, historic sites, and only a handful of (WEALTHY) private residences. It was a day we will never forget!

We were day guests of the Greyfield Inn

I was so excited to catch my first glimpse of the wild horses!

We bicycled roads that looked like this

...and this...




There was no one else on this expansive stretch of beach!
We toured the ruins of the original Carnegie Mansion




I couldn't get enough of these wild creatures!

Couldn't talk Honey into letting us bring one home...



After this pic I was almost nose to nose with this one!

Saying bye to Cumberland Island - what a great day there!

We had dinner at the Ritz Carlton, 2 doors down from our condo

Honey called it a prom pose, I called it a bump pic!

We had such a wonderful time!! We can't wait to go back and take our little family with us. I highly recommend Amelia Island with a day trip to Cumberland Island as a great get-away!!


Thank you sweet Honey for a wonderful Babymoon!!
