Few things can lull you into a daydream like resting in a rocking chair on a front porch. Add an island breeze and a tall glass of ice tea, and you have a recipe for utter relaxation.  For this issue we took a stroll throughout the historic town of Fernandina Beach to capture the porches of this coastal community. From iconic wraparounds to charming gingerbread accents, each porch calls out to passersby, “Just come sit a spell.”
