Today we visited Kingsley Plantation, located off Ft. George Island, this historic landmark was once a running plantation that dates back to 1813. After driving down miles of dirt roads, we discovered a place of beauty and history. As we walked the grounds, I couldn't help but feel the people that once filled these was breathtaking to say the least. Slavery is something that is not to be forgotten. It is part of our history. It's part of who we all are today.

The Kingsley Plantation Barn was artfully constructed out of burned shells, sand, and water  

Greetings mi madre!

The view was amazing!

You can't end an amazing day without some of the BEST EVER ice cream...right???

Located in downtown Amelia Island, this ice cream parlor was a true GEM!
