Kayak Amelia has been asking us to come out for an experience. So I finally got the chance today with my kids. To say the least we had a blast. My upper body got a work out and my eyes got a great view of the salt marsh and the animal life. My sons Rob & David were in one Kayak and Megan & I were in separate kayaks. Ray the leader and trainer of the group was awesome. Friendly and engaging but knew how to say things so that everyone understood, even the little ones. Safety first, very cool. The staff was really friendly and very approachable. We got a quick lesson of the road so to speak and were off. A pretty big group on their Eco-Tour and we truly saw a lot. The three hour tour went by pretty quick and at the 1/2 way point we beached the kayaks and Ray passed out fabulous & huge chocolate chip cookies. You could go at your pace and there was always a staff person in front and in back. The Hoyt House will be putting some great outdoor packages together and we will be adding Kayak Amelia as the feature activity. I can’t wait to get out there again, in my own Kayak! Check them out at Kayak Amelia.

The Hoyt House Murder Mystery Weekend was awesome. We had guests play there parts to the hilt. Elvis was in a full head to toe costume and Jimmy Hendrix was very cool with a plastic blow up guitar. There was laughing and screaming in the dining room and all had a great time. The stuffed Rock Cornish Hens were perfect with Asparagus & Hollandaise and Rice Pilaf. The crab bisque was to die for. If you didn’t catch this one, join us next time on January 27th-28th 2012 for what will be our 4th Annual Murder Mystery Dinner. Twenty guests arrive but only nineteen leave.

Amelia Island Turtle Watch is in full swing on the island. Four digs this week and visitors on the island are encouraged to help get those littleloggerhead turtles safely into the water. It truly is amazing how the process starts of the mother pulling her way up the beach to nest. Struggling to get to the beach and using almost all her strength to dig and lay her eggs. She leaves never to see the outcome of her hard work or her children taking their first swim. David & I had a blast. It is hands on and we got to hold the babies and release them into the water. One of the many things happening on Amelia Island. Nest Watch over 142 Nest for 2011 and 2,224 hatch-lings. Truly Amazing. It is a must see and should be on your Bucket List.
