In Which Bob’s Mother Comes For A Visit

November 4th, 2011 by theAddison

We have been running the Addison for almost 4 years.  We don’t get out much and haven’t been back to Canada since buying the inn.  We were sure that our relatives would be visiting us more often as we are in such a nice part of Florida but that has not been the case.  My mother (thats her on the left) and sister Judy came to see us this week, their first visit to see us and the first time I’ve seen either of them in over 5 years.

They picked a good time of year to visit.  The weather is cooler and the humidity has all but disappeared.  Judy has had a couple of opportunities for some beach time and is going horse-back riding on the beach this afternoon with Lee.  Mother has been hanging out at the inn and going for lots of walks through the Historic District with Maggie Doone and myself.

And, of course, we have been eating.  We had a fabulous dinner at Le Clos on Wednesday night and ate pizza and salad from Arte’s last night.  Shrimp salad sandwiches from the Happy Tomato and soft-shell crad sandwiches at Cafe Karibo.  And breakfast!  Nothing starts off a full day of eating like a full breakfast at the Addison.  Judy has been here for 4 days and says her pants are getting a little snug.  That happens in this town with so many great places to eat.

They are off to the airport tomorrow morning to head home.  The only immediate family on my side who has yet to visit is our son, Dan.  He and Matt are scheduled to arrive after Christmas for 10 days and this will be the first time we have all been together in maybe 6 or 7 years.  There is a lot of catching up to do and food to eat.

    My wife and I visited Amelia Island and stayed at the Addison for the first time last week. We loved everything about the place. The room and hospitality were first class and we had the special treat of meeting Bob’s Mother and Sister while we were there. They are very sweet people.

    Thanks Bob and Shannon for making our stay the best.
