Editor’s Note:  Yesterday, Pat Foster-Turley, nature columnist of “Pat’s Wildways,” was on a different beat.  Pat happened on the scene of a stranded tour bus in downtown Fernandina Beach at the Hampton Inn.    We thank Pat for the information and photos of the bus and its eventual rescue.


Seldomridge of Hilliard, Florida, arrived in Fernandina’s Historic Downtown with a 50-ton wrecker to rescue a stranded tour bus.   According to bystanders, the bus was in the lurch for 3 hours.  Photo courtesy of Pat Foster-Turley.

This is what happens when our local government gives permission for all these gigantic tour buses to tour our so called QUIET little community.
