Cumberland Island Horses

This photo represents another departure from Florida although we never actually set foot in Georgia.  My wife and I spent a great couple of days in Fernandina Beach and as part of this vacation we took the sunset cruise with the Amelia River Cruises (http://www.ameliarivercruises.com/dailytours.html).  The cruise was scheduled for an hour but we stayed out an extra 30 minutes to allow for seeing the sunset from the water.  The captain/owner and his wife/first mate maintained a steady stream of information without overpowering the tour.  He also kept the cruise at a leisurely pace and stopped numerous times to allow for viewing dolphins, horses and other wildlife.  The horses in the photo were taken with a long lens from a rocking boat so the sharpness isn't all it might be.  Personally I like the almost painterly quality of the image.  The horses were magnificent, even from a distance.  One more plug for Fernandina Beach, breakfast at Bright Mornings (http://brightmorningscafe.com/) was exceptional.  The pecan pancakes with a side order of the best grits ever were a perfect start to the day.
