Late Afternoon on Amelia Island - Goodbye Lie Diaries - Carolena

This is where we live and The Goodbye Lie series is set, sans the modern boardwalk. 
 I took the picture from that beachside boardwalk. Generations of fictional and nonfictional folk 
have been blessed to see similar views. 
 Can't get much prettier than this!

Goodbye Lie Diaries
Entry by Carolena Dunnigan 
 Late 1800s
 Fernandina on Amelia Island, Florida

     Carolena writes: My stars, but that is a beautiful picture, Jane Marie. Oh, to have the ability to catch moments of time as you do with your camera. I am trying to talk our father, Michael, into buying one of those new Kodak box-looking cameras I saw in our Florida Mirror newspaper. I am sure we would all willingly gather to have our pictures made.  To our mother's chagrin, Daddy rarely says no to his children's wants.  I have only begun persuading him.  Poor darling. I can be a dog with a bone when I want something, now can't I?

Carolena Dunnigan is the featured player in
 Amelia Island's Velvet Undertow, set in 1889 Fernandina on Amelia Island, Florida.  Judgemental, with a quick temper, she is the interior designer for yachts and ships in the family's Aqua Verde Passenger Line.  Commissioned to build a yacht for a world famous conductor, Paulo Alontti, deceit reigns, taking the family into the horrors of the great Johnstown, Pennsylvania flood.  One reader wrote: I can smell the flood waters! This is all part of Jane Marie Malcolm's Goodbye Lie historical mystery/romance series.
