After about an hours journey up the Julienton and across the sound, you’ve arrived at Blackbeard.  If you’ve ever been, you know that there’s always at least one bird there to welcome you…in my case, two.

it’s about time…

September 28, 2007

Mommy dearest has arrived in Savannah, and I’ve been racing the clock to finish my Skirt! Illustration so I can spend some time with her. Looks like I will finally get a day out on the boat, best of all, with Mom and Granny, and Uncle Captain George. I’m hoping the weather will be kind, and the sun bright…Would be a real treat to go to Blackbeard or St. Catherine’s Island. I love the remoteness of these locations, it seriously feels like we’ve been marooned even if Captain George is only a few hundred feet off-shore fishing. If you can scrounge up a captain and a boat, I highly recommend a trip out to undeveloped barrier islands…a real treat…
