Last Chance, Lasting Memories and Treants, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Tall & Handsome and I spent our last evening on the Island trying to make a few memories that would last us for a while. We had one of the best meals we had since I’ve been here. We ate at Barbara Jean’s. She’s Brunswick/St. Simons Island’s answer to Paula Deen and let me tell… Continue reading Last Chance, Lasting Memories and Treants, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Picture(s) of the Day – Jekyll Island (GA) Bridge, by Beverly Hicks Burch

The pictures of the day are of The Jekyll Island Bridge. I believe this bridge was constructed to replace a much older bridge on US 17. It’s a suspension bridge and looms on the horizon from many viewpoints on St. Simons Island and parts of Brunswick. Saturday after attending to some business, Tall & Handsome… Continue reading Picture(s) of the Day – Jekyll Island (GA) Bridge, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Picture of the Day – Solitude at Driftwood Beach

Late in the afternoon on 9/11 Tall & Handsome and I drove over to Jekyll Island (GA). We really wanted to see Driftwood Beach. I was fascinated with the old oak trees that grow close to the beach. Over time, these tree become the giant driftwood “sculptures” on the beach as weather, time and erosion… Continue reading Picture of the Day – Solitude at Driftwood Beach

St. Simons Island Lighthouse at Night

I didn’t think to take my camera down to the pier with me, so I pulled out my cell phone and snapped this picture of the St. Simons Island Lighthouse from the Neptune Park Pier after dinner this evening. Hopefully I can catch one with  the “grown up” camera later…I just can’t resist lighthouses…yeah, I… Continue reading St. Simons Island Lighthouse at Night

Picture of the Day – Oleander and Light

My Tall and Handsome took this the other day when we were out at the St. Simons Lighthouse. I love Oleander. It’s common to find it in the subtropical parts of the South (and even in some of the cooler parts). It’s a hardy plant, evergreen, deer resistant and drought tolerant, BUT it’s also infamous… Continue reading Picture of the Day – Oleander and Light

Lions and Tigers and Parasitic Human Babies…Oh, My!, By Beverly Hicks Burch

Lions and Tigers and Parasitic Human Babies…Oh, My! By Beverly Hicks Burch Yesterday, I had a lot on my plate I had to take care of before I could turn my attention to the TV and news. But, when I did the radar for the “newshound” in me went off immediately. Guess the dead giveaway… Continue reading Lions and Tigers and Parasitic Human Babies…Oh, My!, By Beverly Hicks Burch

Picture of the Day – Camouflaged, by Beverly Hicks Burch

  Can you see the little camouflaged fellow hanging on for dear life? He’s in the lower center of the photograph. I was very surprised to see him when I was reviewing the pictures I took this morning…I didn’t see him when I was out there and if I had I probably would have run… Continue reading Picture of the Day – Camouflaged, by Beverly Hicks Burch
