The Old Carnegies Mansion Cumberland Island

Refer to as the "The Last Bastion of the Gilded Age".  Cumberland Island was a vacation home for the extreme weathly.  Let us be So grateful that the Island is no longer in the hands of the wealthy and elite.  Its unspoiled beauty is now available for us all to enjoy.

Cumberland Island, Sand Dunes and Marsh Boardwalk

Horses were everywhere on the island.  Due to the heat, I never thought the horses would be so close to the beach or hanging near the marsh but if there is grass, the horses were there.  You can see them in the distance from the boardwalk.  The sand dunes are the mountains of the island.  Your feet would sink in with each step up the slope. 

Nature's Beach Dunes, Sand and Sun at Jekyll Island

Unspoiled beach just before you reach the large construction site of the new convention center.  Once the center is complete, how much of the beach will remain intact in its natural state once the crowds come?

Driftwood Beach, Jekyll Island

Not even Jack Sparrow or his pirates could be so lucky as to be shipped wreck on Driftwood Beach.

Teenage Memories of Robin Lake

In the 1970's, there were not too many places in Columbus Georgia to go swimming so it was a real treat to take a trip to Robin Lake at Callaway Gardens for a picnic and all day of swimming.  It was always packed with fun loving teens and I have many good memories of the beach at Robin Lake.

Backwaters of West Point Lake

 A sunset is the diamond in the sky; a jewel that graces a lake and gives it a finishing touch for the end of the day.  Photos taken on the backwaters of West Point Lake near Franklin Georgia.

An Old Wash Pot and a Rusty Red Truck - Aging Can be Beautiful

An old wash pot sits in the front yard and a rusty red truck is parked on the side.  I sure do miss my great-grandma Dink Brown!  She lived in a house similar to this one 50 years ago in Cherokee County. Someone must love this place; after all, the grass is cut, there are no weeds and the house looks as good as my great grandmas before they tore hers down.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!  I think this place is beautiful!
