Happy Fourth of July from Amelia Island!

This little guy has quite a history on the Island.  It's owner (who happens to be me) inherited it when we purchased our home here.  After some resistance and reminding that he/she was a fixture here I consented to dress him/her. It gets smiles and chuckles.  Children love to visit it. 
Who am I to fight tradition!

Everything else is decked out in Fourth finery, so why not?

 Fourth of July, the ubiquitous American holiday.  A time for us all to
remember the courage of our founders in fighting to ensure the incredible
freedoms that are ours today.  A reminder to treasure, to cherish,
to safeguard them.  Each generation is called upon to
help that goal become a reality all along the continuum of life.

The duck is made of cement, but nonetheless sends a message that the
Fourth is more than flags flying and fireworks.

A safe happy Holiday to you and yours!!
