Its Beginning To Feel A Lot Like Christmas!

December 12th, 2010 by theAddison

We just got a call from a young woman (we’ll call her Julie) in Wisconsin who was looking to reserve a room with us over the Christmas holidays.   Fernandina Beach has a three-night cold snap forecasted with temperatures as low as 28 degrees!  Julie told me this afternoon that they are having winds of 40 MPH, minus 29 degrees and 16 inches of fresh snow.  And I was complaining about having to cover up our ferns tonight to protect them from the frost.

The guests at the Addison last night had a great treat.  We had Happy Hour in the living room last night with a nice baked brie for the snack.  After Happy Hour we went out onto the front porch and watched the lighted Christmas Parade go by right in front of the inn.  Usually the Fernandina Beach Pirates Club brings up the tail end of the local parades but in this parade it is always Santa at the end of the parade.  The attached video shows just the tail end of the parade.  Somehow I missed the first half.  Maybe I was busy topping up wine glasses.   The Addison’s guests loved the parade!

It is less than two weeks until Christmas!  It is a good thing we have a gift shop right here in the Addison (coffee mugs, robes, Christmas ornaments….) as it does save me having to drive to a store for most of my shopping.  I just have to find something nice for Shannon.  Something not from Lowes.  For some reason, to most women, a power tool does not speak “Merry Christmas”.
