It’s always fun to have friends stop by for a few days to enjoy the Williams House and Amelia Island. In this case, Bob and Sue from Raleigh, NC came by for a few days of summer fun in Florida. Bob and Deborah worked for the same real estate firm in Raleigh and Bob and Byron played a good bit of golf together and even won some of the realtor golf outings. Bob and Sue have ben inn-sitters for us on several occasions and enjoy the process. The weather was a bit iffy with threats of rain and showers most days, but we managed to get in around of golf and the ladies a shopping trip to the outlet mall in St. Augustine. We also ate at some of our great local restaurants like 29 South, Barbara Jeans and of course, the Fudge Shop.
Bob particularly enjoys wine hour, so each day we paused the busy schedule to enjoy wine, cheeses and fresh summer breezes with our guests. The near daily afternoon showers have really greened up everything this week, but still haven’t interferred too much with desired activities. Because of the clouds, temps have been in mid to high 80′s which has been great compared to the 95 degree days in the prior weeks.
Bob and I both enjoy North Hampton with fair opportunities for par but plenty of trouble to keep you on your toes. We always enjoy friends stopping in to give us a little break from our standard routine, remember old times and catch up on new things happening in each others lives. We look forward to them returning soon, but definitely in time to give us a little inn-sitting relief about this time next year! If you are our guests next year around this time, you will no doubt have the opportunity to meet them as well.
