Another 4th of July has passed and it was a good one here at the Addison. We had a really nice group of guests this weekend with everyone hanging out together and sharing their lives’ stories. We had a great turnout for the 4th Happy Hour and we served up a veritable feast with grilled hand-made hamburgers, baked beans from the Happy Tomato, potato salad, bean salad and hot dogs. The weather was great all weekend, not too hot with a nice breeze blowing, perfect for heading to the beach.
After Happy Hour was done several of our guests sat on the front porch to watch the 4th of July parade. Fernandina Beach loves a parade and we have one for almost every holiday. The biggest parade of the year is for Shrimp Fest. Everyone enjoyed the parade and then walked down to the marina for the fireworks show.
Laurie and Duncan are regular guests of ours and today they are enjoying a free night courtesy of the Addison’s “Rewards For Guests That Keep Coming Back” Special. Guests who stay for ten nights over any number of visits receive a night for free. This is Laurie and Duncan’s 4th visit and their third visit was Memorial Day weekend, just a few weeks ago. This is a picture of them getting ready to try our Strawberry Shortcake for breakfast.
So, the 4th is gone but another fun day is under way in Fernandina Beach. We’ve loaded up our guests with beach chairs and towels and they are off for an afternoon of basking on the beaches. Even on a holiday weekend it isn’t difficult to find wide open stretches of sand to enjoy.
