Amelia Island Adventures: Timoti’s and the Holiday Cookie Tour

2013 11 Event B&B Holiday Cookie Tour 02 Timoti

They say it isn’t a good idea to mix work and pleasure, but, at least on this occasion, I would beg to differ!  The weekend before Thanksgiving we had the pleasure of shooting a few photos for our friends at AmeliaIsland.com while enjoying the day on the island with some old friends.  Bryn and I left the kids behind and took a leisurely drive up to Timoti’s Seafood Shack for an early lunch before the B&B Holiday Cookie Tour.   This great little restaurant in Downtown Fernandina always has great seafood (pictured above) and on a bright, sunny, cool autumn day, the outdoor picnic tables offered the perfect setting to enjoy our meal.

2013 11 Event B&B Holiday Cookie Tour 07

Shortly after our meal, we met up with Justin and Jill to spend the afternoon exploring several of the great Bed and Breakfasts Amelia Island has to offer.  The Amelia Island Holiday Cookie Tour, a much-anticipated annual event on the island, offers guests the opportunity to explore these great old Bed and Breakfasts decked out in all their Christmas splendor.  This is the second year we have covered the event (see last year’s highlights here).  While touring the B&B’s, we also snapped a few photos of Justin and Jill, who are expecting their first child early next year.

All in all, it was a wonderful day full of food, friends and great holiday spirit!  As always, feel free to download any or all of the images for use as desktop wallpaper!  Enjoy!

Welcoming Warmth at the Amelia Island Holiday Cookie Tour

Though the weather changed little between my first and second shoots up in Amelia Island this weekend, what was poor weather for a farmers market proved the perfect weather for a holiday-themed cookie tour of the historic Bed and Breakfasts of Amelia Island.  The cool weather and overcast skies made the warm and welcoming interiors of these beautiful homes all the more enjoyable.  It certainly got me in the Christmas mood!  On top of beautifully decorated homes, each B&B had its own signature cookie and a recipe card for each guest – and let me tell you, they were good!

This year’s tour encompassed a total of eight bed and breakfasts – many decked out for the holidays!  Below is a list of each B&B with a link to their website, should one of the photos stir a desire to visit one of these beautiful homes.
