So when you get the call that it may be time to head to Jacksonville to meet your new grandchild, it’s important to have a list of items to take for an overnight stay.
Kindle, iPad & chargers
gift & card
But in addition, don’t forget the bikes, locks, helmets and bike clothes.
Why pack bikes? Well, it’s not easy sitting in a hospital room all day with other visitors as well as a host of doctors, nurses and other hospital personnel. So instead of killing time in the lobby to give the new parents some space, we took a bike break.
Only 45 minutes away, Amelia Island State Park was the starting point for our ride on the Timucuan Trail passing through both Big Talbot Island State Park and Little Talbot Island State Park.
The trail passes through an area for bird watching and several short trails that lead to the beach.
The next time we ride this trail we need to pack a hammock like others we saw enjoying the beach. A good place to ride, read and relax.
