Fort Clinch State Park; Fernandina Beach, Florida

Just before Thanksgiving, my laptop computer died and had to be sent back to the factory for repair. It turned out to be a defective mother board and Compaq replaced it under warranty even though it was beyond the 1 yr. original warranty. But I've gotten a bit behind in posting here since it took a couple of weeks.

After Thanksgiving, Ed & I spent four days up at Fort Clinch State Park in Fernandina Beach, Florida. Ft. Clinch is on Amelia Island, located on the Georgia/Florida state line. Cumberland Island National Seashore lies across the river. The great thing about Ft. Clinch SP is that they have two campgrounds - one on the river and one (our preference) with direct beach access.

Here is our campsite.

A short stroll down the boardwalk across the dunes brings you onto the beach.

Ft. Clinch SP is popular with fishermen and Ed decided to try his hand. Sadly, the fish weren't biting on this day.

The pelicans patrolling the shoreline may have had better luck!

Campers wishing to stay at Ft. Clinch should make reservations although a certain number of sites are held open for walk-ins. All campsite have water and electic hook-ups. We're hoping to stop back on our way up north in April.
