This weekend will be nicer than we have seen this winter in Fernandina Beach, so get out of the house and go do something!
Sounds on Centre returns to historic Fernandina Beach on Friday night from 6 to 8:00 PM with live music, dancing in the streets and Pirates!!!
Pipeline Surf Shop is presenting the first Eastern Surfing Association’s surf contest of the year on Saturday, March 6th, just south of Sliders near the City of Fernandina’s Seaside Park at Sadler Road and Fletcher Avenue at 9:00 AM; waves are required! Though Saturday won’t be warm enough for bikinis, it will be a beautiful day to observe the skills of these talented young surfers.
Also, the new spring lines have just arrived at Pipeline (within walking distance of the surf contest) including new Quicksilver Diamond Dobby boardshorts, Hurley Phantoms and Oneill Hyperfreaks. Pipeline carries the best performance boardshort in town! Also just in are new Guys and Girls Reefs, Quicksilver sandals, Roxy handbags, and a brand new bikini line from Fox Ladies. Ladies also have selections in Super-stretch boardshorts and finally, bikini tops with D and DD cups!!!
We also wanted to bring your attention to the Waterwheel Art Gallery. Stephanie Media, owner and operator, has decided the gallery, after 28 years in the same location, has outgrown the building and is excited to move to a larger, more upscale setting on the south end of the island. Because of this, the current building and lot is up for sale. Call Grace Lipman at Century 21, (904) 261-5571 ext. 13 or email Grace at GraceLipman.com if you are interested in the property. Stepanie wants more options to offer her clients which she cannot do at this location. She won’t be moving until the property sells, so please continue bringing your framing in…. the trucks aren’t backing up to the doors just yet!
Other new advertisers include a brand new Fernandina Beach business, Awakenings Tattoo. Located near Dairy Queen and the Pipeline Surf Shop, Awakenings, a Christian tattoo parlor also carry clothing and accessories; stop by and welcome them to town. Another big “welcome aboard” goes to the Shapiro-Cabell Insurance Group, give them a call at (904) 277-2135 for free quotes on all of your insurance needs.
