c1911 Post Office – Amelia Island

A favorite of mine to photograph – the interior of our c1911 post office here on Amelia Island. For the most part it’s survived its 115 year plus history pretty much intact. I’m told that this is exactly the same way this door has looked since 1911. Amazing.


Beautiful quartersawn oak – excellent casework and attention to detail. Can you imagine replicating this today?

Thanks for stopping by!


The Pippi Longstocking House – Amelia Island

Located in what is known as Old Town (Fernandina Beach) overlooking the Amelia River on the northwest side of Amelia Island. Originally built around 1870 for a harbor pilot Captain Bell and the second owner was also a river captain in 1901. Located on a high bluff at 212 Estrada Street, it overlooks the former Spanish fort San Carlos (c1811).

It’s a lovely house that’s been restored and maintained through the decades. It stood in as Pippi Longstocking’s house in the late 1980s movie “The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking”… “The house was altered and remodeled through the years. When movie producers came calling in 1987, it was its original weathered white with hunter green shutters. The house stood in for Villa Villekulla, the fictional home of Pippi, a character in a series of books written by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren. The young girl lives alone in a small Swedish village sharing the house with her monkey and horse. She befriends the two children living next door, Tommy and Annika Settergren, and they have many adventures together.”

Today it is a private residence and is not open for tours. It’s a very easy to photograph house because of the large open area in front of the house (actually Fernandina Plaza Historic State Park).

If you find yourself near Amelia Island it is well worth the visit (don’t miss the 40 block Historic District of Fernandina Beach while you’re at it).


Pippi says “hi”!

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge… Whispering Canyon Cafe

One of our favorite spots to kick back at Walt Disney World. The food is always fantastic and the grounds are wonderful for strolling after dinner with its “California Lodge” look of what you’d expect Yosemite to look like.








Typical Disney attention to detail throughout – a must stay if you’re a Disney fan and a fan of that California look.

Thanks for your visit and be sure to stop by ccstudio2380 for some great examples of our fine art photography.
