In March, Southern Stars Section hosted an Amelia Island & Fernandina Beach Drive & Dine!


            On Saturday, March 20, 2021, the original date “Cars & Coffee at the Concours” a portion at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, that was postponed until May 22, 2021.


            We met up with nearly two dozen Southern Stars Section members and guests at our rendezvous point in Jacksonville, FL, before we started our adventures! We began our caravan over via a brief section of I-295, then Heckscher Drive, where we looked forward to meeting up with more members who were meeting us in their 1971 280SE Cabriolet, as we ventured towards A1A. Florida State Road A1A is a north–south Florida State Road that runs along the Atlantic Ocean, from Key West at the southern tip of Florida, to Fernandina Beach. How many people have been at both ends of A1A? The drive included veiews of St. Johns River, Little- and Big Talbot Island State Parks, Nassau Sound, and the Fernandina Beach Historic District.


            We enjoyed a scenic drive, ending up at Brett’s Waterway Café, situated on the Fernandina Harbor Marina, overlooking Amelia River. Brett’s Waterway Café is directly across the street from historic brick-lined streets that house many local shops. What a place to soak up history!

            We had a couple dozen MBCA members join us for the drive. We had roadsters, Wagons, sedans, SUV's join in on the travels! Something for everyone to enjoy! Everyone shared stories and  enjoyed some laughs and tech tips! New friendships and memberships were formed, and a great time was had by all! We look forward to more of these Drive & Dine events, it's always a fantastic adventure!


            Our next public event will be a Cars & Coffee, on April 10th, 2021 from 8 AM to 10:30 AM, at the Mercedes Benz Orange Park (The one on Blanding Blvd).


            Our next Drive & Dine member event will happen on SUNDAY, April  25h, 2021, as we venture to St. Simons Island, and take in the sights King and Prince Golf & Beach Resort located ocean front, St. Simons Island. Situated among Georgia’s fabled Golden Isles, the area is rich in history, relaxed charm, and natural beauty, making it the perfect spot to enjoy the views overlooking pristine beaches, Jekyll Island, and the Atlantic Ocean!


            The King and Prince  is located approximately halfway between Savannah, GA and Jacksonville, FL. The resort is surrounded by countless recreational activities, historic sites, shopping, and attractions that offer something for everyone.
