Yesterday we all jumped in the Ms Beazly (MY new car) and headed off to Amelia Island - this was our first visit and to get there we had to take a car ferry which Mom said was so cool. This was also our first case of dog discrimination for although dogs are allowed on the ferry they are not allowed to get out of the car - which is so unfair as I REALLY wanted to stand at the bow like Mom did. Needless to say I barked loudly about the unfair situation.
Once we got off the ferry we headed off toward the first park which is Little Talbot State Park and shock horror - more doggie discrimination - we were told they don't allow dogs and they charge $5.00 to just to get in! Dad turned Ms Beazly around and we left - then we came across Big Talbot State Park and it was the same thing! We kept driving and noticed they have an awesome bike trail that runs the entire length of Amelia island and every now and again there was a place to park. I told Dad I REALLY needed to leave some pee mail so he stopped and as luck would have the parking area we stopped at also had a walking trail that led down to the beach. It also cost $3.00 to just park at the trail but I told Mom she could take it out of my treat money as I really really wanted to go. We walked and walked and walked and it was awesome - it was so shady and cool and eventually we came out to an area called drift wood beach. We couldn't really go and check it out as the path came to an abrupt end on a cliff about 10 foot high and we couldn't find a path down but we enjoyed looking at it anyway. We kept driving an noticed lots of funny shaped beach houses including this one that looked like a lighthouse. Mom was surprised there are still blocks of lands for sale right on the beach front - she is dreaming now of winning the lotto and having a house right on the beach.
