Our second day on Amelia Island was spent relaxing at the hotel and being pampered in the spa. Following cocktails in the lobby, we decided to visit downtown Fernandina Beach for dinner
To properly celebrate our tenth anniversary we dressed to the nines and dined at Salt. The restaurant is located on the ground floor of the swanky Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island
