On Black Friday, we decided to make it Beach Friday. Since we've been in Jacksonville, we've been to Jacksonville Beach & Atlantic Beach for leisurely strolls in the surf, American Beach (which is the first African American beach in the area) which resulted in a pretty vicious sunburn for Mom (always put sunscreen on the kids, but forgot to have anyone get my back), and on Beach Friday, we went to Little Talbot Island. We had a picnic lunch away from the sand, then headed out to play in the sand. On our way, Uncle Joseph spotted this tortoise. There is a similar tortoise in the Jacksonville Zoo Florida section. The boys were definitely impressed with this wild life.
