The official kick-off to summer, Memorial Day weekend, is just around the corner and yesterday we got our first whiff of summer temperatures. The average temperature in May is 82 degrees F and yesterday we hit 90 for the first time this year. The humidity is still pretty low so it was a great day with nothing but blue skies and sunshine.
What did our guests do on such a nice day? We gave out a lot of bicycles and beach towels and away they went. One couple was at the beach and saw the release of sea turtles into the wild as part of the Wild Amelia Nature Festival. Amelia River Cruises had a lot of our guests onboard as well. The manatees are working their way north and we should start seeing them soon. You can see them from the Amelia River Cruise but Captain Carol’s On The Water Adventure is the best way to get up close and personal with the big beasts.
Don’t forget, you can always see our beaches through the live webcams at AmeliaBeaches.com. One of the cameras is right at the end of Atlantic at Sandy Bottoms Restaurant and the other is at the south end of the island. You can check out the stretch of sand and either reminisce about your great visit here or build anticipation for that trip you are planning.
