Food Trucks and a River Cruise at the Ritz-Carlton!

2013 07 Event Ritz Carlton Partner 11 Culinary

After some travel time and a few weeks of catching up, we again had the pleasure of photographing a great group up at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island.   The event planning staff at the resort always comes up with great ideas and fun activities for their corporate guests, as was the case with this event.  The welcome reception was hosted in one of the resort’s great function foyers, with two food trucks located just outside the doors on the Oceanfront Lawn.

The culinary staff at the resort really makes my job easy – they take great care in not only making their entrees taste great, but also look amazing, as evidenced by the photos in the gallery at the bottom of this post. When you browse through the photos, make sure to take a close look at the first picture – it may just look like a collection of nicely arranged vegetables, but it is actually an array of hand-crafted marzipan creations!   And that was just Tuesday night.

We also had the privilege of photographing the group’s excursion along the coastal waterways surrounding Amelia Island.  The lunch cruise aboard the Naples Princess, a great new addition to the NE Florida charter fleet, provided the perfect platform to see the historic area’s best, including Fort Clinch and the wild horses of Cumberland Island.  We even had the pleasure of seeing two foals with their mothers.     As always, feel free to download any or all of the images for use as desktop wallpaper!  Enjoy!

Photo of the Day – Ships Crossing in the Night…errr, I Mean Day

With Hurricane Sandy off our coast, Jacksonville had an unexpected visitor (well, 1900 of them t be exact).  The cruise ship you see in the background took a detour en route from Newark to Ft Lauderdale due to the high seas and intense winds produced by Sandy.  Being a one cruise ship town, this was big news.  So today, when we were going over the Dames Point bridge and we saw the Carnival ship going out, I traded seats with Bryn and started snapping away as we did a few passes over the bridge.  The above photo is my favorite – an extremely rare site of not one, but two cruise liners in the St Johns River at one time.  Below are a few more or my favorite St Johns River photos from years past!  As always, feel free to share, download and enjoy!
