Wednesday and Amelia Island

We left Coffeyvile at 7:00 AM on Monday and traveled all day Monday and stayed overnight in Birmingham Alabama. Tuesday we got up and went to a McDonald's and had breakfast.That was my first time to eat at a McDonald's. Then we took off for Florida. We got in about 4:00. I was utterly exhausted but not as tired as Monday. I did not sleep well. Between my sore arm and my sore right thumb, everything hurt.

Today, we took off at 8:00 and went to Amelia Island. We walked all about Amelia Island and eventually ate at a great restaurant called Brett's. Then my kids walked around some more and I sat on the porch of the restaurant and watched the boats come in.

When we got back to Yulee, Scott was there and soon so was Ginger. The pool guys were still there too. They were putting the acid on the newly painted pool prior to filling it.

We watched a 2016 movie called "The Revenant" . It was quite good although gory.

More later.....

The pool guys finally came and finished the pool. Now it's ready to be filled. It will take all night with two garden hoses but should be ready to use by the weekend. They are to put the finishing touches on it when it's filled. 

The people who are building a home next door came over to meet John and Leslie and me and stayed and visited awhile. They seem very nice.

John and Leslie and Ginger went fishing this evening. Scott and I stayed home and visited, 

At 9:00 I took my bath and went to bed.
