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!!
