Fernandina Beach Shrimp Festival 2012

The first weekend of May is when the Shrimp Festival was held in Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island, FL.  Courtney and Josh flew to Atlanta Thursday night.  We drove down on Friday and came back on Monday.  They flew back from Jacksonville very early Monday morning.

The main street in historic downtown was closed to vehicles to allow vendors to set up their tents to display their wares.  Food and shopping were all around.  It was quite hot walking around on the asphalt street, which made us very thirsty.  Fortunately water holes were readily available.

With my camera and tripod I captured a few images.  The best I put into a gallery, which is here.
