Funny…turns out more mystery surrounds this place than I had once imagined.  Granny and I jump ship (skiff really), and parade around the white sandy beaches for washed up conch shells…(the biggest you’ve ever seen)…We feel like we’ve been marooned on the place, as there has never been another soul in sight.  Needless to say, even my 29-year-old imagination runs wild here.  So imagine my utter delight in finding out this place was in many ways a small bit of Eden? Just so happens The New York Zoological Society utilizes this remote island to give endangered species from across the world a place to grow and thrive…Grevy’s Zebras and ring-tailed lemurs to name a few.  Sadly, the public is only allowed to access the island’s beaches…but should we come eye to eye with a zebra in the future, we’ll know it’s no mirage.

Sapelo Island

March 24, 2010

So far I’ve only observed this driftwood-laden-land by boat.  I hope to explore the  mainland a little more this summer.  As it is only accessible by boat, I hear the culture has in many ways been preserved.  In fact, the children still take a ferry to the  mainland everyday for school.  Then there’s the Reynold’s Mansion, I mean, who wouldn’t want to take a peek at that?

Bald Eagle

March 19, 2010

The first Bald Eagle I’d ever seen in my life…(in the wild that is)… It was pure chance (or maybe the universe working its’ magic) that we had just been talking about them, when he appeared…at first sitting on the sand bar as if to enjoy a day at the beach.  By the time I got my camera out, he had taken flight, but not before I captured this shot.  We were on the way home, nearly to our dock on the Julienton when he arrived.  The perfect end to yet another magical Blackbeard trip.

Hope you’re all out enjoying a safe and wonderful St. Pat’s!  This is Liz’s first St. Pat’s in Savannah, so we made her draw the name for the  St. Pat’s Day Give-A-Way.

she’s bursting with excitement, can’t you tell?!  lol!  and the winner is…..

Jen B!  Thanks so much for entering and for your support of my work over the years!  Hope you love your new prints!

Now it’s time for green beers and good times!  Happy St. Pat’s everyone!

Pelicans at the Bar

While Granny and I hunted treasure…(surely it’s called Blackbeard for a reason)… these not-so-shy members of The Beach Patrol (as my father calls them) sunned on the bar.
