Valentine's Getaway to the Ritz - Amelia Island


Andrea and I went to Amelia Island for the weekend, for what was supposed to be a double's bootcamp tennis weekend. Unfortunately, a huge winter storm rolled over America and came through Florida over the weekend. While we were happy to get rain instead of snow, the weather was pretty miserable for tennis. Our Friday afternoon/evening session was rained out and we opted to get a credit on our account instead of worry about the weather the rest of the weekend. The rain actually wasn't too bad over the weekend and we probably could have gotten a decent amount of tennis in, but we really enjoyed our relaxing time together.

We ate at Marche Burette for lunch a few times and we rode bikes provided by the hotel, a couple times. We did get caught in a rainstorm on the way back once and we were pretty soaked and chilled to the bone by the time we got back to our room. We went to Nana Teresa's Bake Shop a couple times and got some Valentine's themed chocolate strawberries, which may have been the best ones we've ever eaten. So yummy we went back for more on Saturday evening. It was a wonderful weekend to watch the Australian Open on TV, chill and relax, and more than anything to connect and enjoy my wife's company. Love you Andrea, Happy Valentine's Day!
