Meet my new be(a)stie Boomer!
Born 19 years ago on an Amish farm in Ohio, he was sold to a logging company. When he turned ten, he was brought to Fernandina Beach, where he's become a much loved resident. He's been taking people around town ever since, and to be comfortable when 'working', he wears 'easy boots'–rubberized tennis shoes for horses!
Call me a tourist, but I totally enjoyed the ride. A carriage provides a perfect pace to take it all in and learn a little bit about this place.
