The Animals at Omni Amelia Island Plantation

It's no secret that the staff at Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort's Nature Center loves their wildlife. A few of our resident critters have even been around since the Plantation first opened way back in 1972! We recently wrangled up the Nature Center's collection for a photo op and while some were a little more cooperative than others, we were able to nab some pretty great shots. While the Nature Center features creatures of all sorts, check out some photos of our friends who weren't shy about coming out of their shells at all. Who knew that so many different types of turtles existed? If these pictures happen to pique your curiosity, be sure to stop by the Nature Center for a tour! Each week they hold a number of "Featured Creature" hours where they'll spotlight one of the animals and you'll get to get up close and personal with them. Check out the schedule on our Weekly Resort Guide.

Mother’s Day at Omni Amelia Island Plantation

Last year when I wrote a mother's day blog it was about my sister buying my mom the best mother's day gift as a child.  When I went to reflect on mother's day this year I'm looking at it through the eyes of my friends who have recently had children.  Mother's day used to be about recognizing my mother for all she's done throughout my life but now it's also about the respect I have for all mothers. For the love they have for their children before they even see them the first time.  For the instinct at knowing exactly what cry means what. For the quick hands that grab an arm before they topple over. For the life long dedication they make to their children's lives. This year, whether you're saying thank you to your mother, grandmother, mother-in-law, step-mom, wife, or dear friends (Courtney, Melissa, Jill, Carrie and MeLissa), you can find plenty of ways to say the right thing at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort.
