Where were the dogs?
Saw a bunch of cats in Fernandina Beach, but now that I think back on it--I don't recall seeing more than one dog (a dog that tried to jump his fence and get at us). I'm a dog guy and cats make me sneeze. But I don't mind seeing a cat catch a cat nap on his front step. I was good and did not attempt to chase the cat.
The double porch
Almost every Victorian in Fernandina Beach has a double porch. It is a distinct style that you don't see on the Victorian houses in my part of the world. These double porches seem very Floridian to me. I imagine that in the 1800s it was a relief to spend time on the porch after toiling inside with no air-conditioning.

Gather at the docks at sunset
The pelicans gather along the boatyards at sunset awaiting any lagging fishing boats. Always on the lookout for a free handout of bait not used that day. If the handouts are scarce, the sunset from the port overlooking the marshes is still beautiful. Though, I believe the pelicans are probably more interested in fish than sunsets.
