Very cool shots. I love the moss in the trees. I bet that makes for spooky night time walks.

I love the area you live in.  One of our favorite stops on the way to or from the north, however, lately I have been traveling by air.  Next time I drive, hopefully I can make a trip to Jeckle Island or Brunswick!

Julie  I just knew I would see the Creature...I assume one of these buildings is where the creature was born?  Club Hotel?  Great book and great blog.  Thanks for sharing and promoting your community.
