Hi, my name is Flat Stanley. I am a special friend of Evelyn. She colored me and stuck me in a dark envelope and sent me away to visit her grandparents. It was a long ride from here to Fernandina Beach, Florida. I think I was high up in the air sometimes and then sometimes I was in a bumpy truck until I arrived at the Stokes’ house. Teesie welcomed me and let me lie on her shoulder after the long trip.
While at Fernandina Beach I got to do lots of fun things. I got to visit the lighthouse that someone made and brought to Teesie. It was cool and had its own light at the top. Teesie and Pop collect seashells almost every day and I got to play with them. On Sunday, Evelyn’s cousin Bailey came for a visit and we went to lunch together.
Teesie and Pop check out new sites all the time on the island and they even found a street sign with my name on it. One of Pop’s favorite things to do is eat ice cream. I went along for the ride and saw lots of ice cream. It made me cold.
The beach is a favorite place for Teesie and Evelyn too when she visits her grandparents. Just like Evelyn, I like to get buried in the sand. We took a ride to the other side of Amelia Island where the boats were coming in for the day at sunset. Pop’s favorite time of the day is sunrise. I got to go there too.
Teesie took some pictures of me having fun and then I got a ride back to Lexington to come and visit all of you. I hope you have a very good school year and learn a lot of things.
PS, Teesie is coming to visit Evelyn in October.
