The day after Thanksgiving…unseasonably cold here yesterday,  but warmer today.

Perfect as today was downtown Amelia Island PJ party.  It is always a hoot and a holler and no different this year.  The sun was shining and smiles were everywhere. Also some neat music making…complete with our former mayor sporting pjs and his signature eye patch! 
 Foot stomping' music, too, down by the harbor.

Red and green and holly….and laughter…no matter your age.
If you are wearing pi's you get a discount in the shops.

Many folks coordinate their outfits….yep, there is a prize for best outfits!  I particularly
like the color scheme with these four.

Often whole families get into the act….

This is when we fall in love with our island all over again.  I somehow cannot see this happening up in a mall somewhere.  This is all about family time, slow time, laughter time and
you can get good Christmas shopping done to boot! 

All up and down the town, everyone is different and whimsical

Shop keepers dress up and offer tantalizing goodies, and snacks, and one even offers mimosas!  No crowds, no parking problems, no traffic jams….  This wonderful lady below has a decorated walker, she has no fear of anyone knocking her over in a rush to get to some bargain.  She and her neighbor get up early, and take the ferry from Jacksonville Beach, it is an annual trip for them.
When she hit a button on her hat,
 it started gyrating and jingling a Christmas tune.  

Sparkling pj's. bunny slippers and light-up hula hoops.

Bill, just released for the day?

Have a great after-turkey day from lil' ol' Amelia Island where the living is easy and sweet.  Just ask our pirates that can be found anywhere and everywhere on the Island….
