A Big Place to Play Marbles?! by Beverly Hicks Burch

If you are a golfer you may recognize this picture..but, then again maybe not. Why? Well, this particular view. This shot was taken from atop of the Harbour Town Lighthouse on Hilton Head (SC). I have always loved the view from the top of lighthouses. There’s just nothing like it…well, except maybe the view from… Continue reading A Big Place to Play Marbles?! by Beverly Hicks Burch

Ancient Bodies on Driftwood Beach, by Beverly Hicks Burch

A few days ago, I changed the header on my blog and started using a potion of a  picture I took at Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island (GA). (I had been using a picture I took in East Tennessee.) I’ve also changed the format of my blog just a tad to give it some freshness… Continue reading Ancient Bodies on Driftwood Beach, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Arachnid Who?! by Beverly Hicks Burch

Last night when I opened the French doors to let Watson out for his last nightly potty run, I had the shock of my life. Just inches from my face was a huge spider web and one pretty big Arachnid. I’m glad I didn’t go barreling out the door like Scoot (Watson) does or I… Continue reading Arachnid Who?! by Beverly Hicks Burch

Summer in the South and a Big Ol’ Shady Porch, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Does anything say summer in the South like a big ol’ shady front porch? Add to that a bright sunny day and red, white and blue and you’ve just got an all American day. We were glad to be able to finally recapture this half of the porch back. The barn swallows finally hatched (all… Continue reading Summer in the South and a Big Ol’ Shady Porch, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Where the Elite Eat in Their Bare Feet…and Watch Those Toes!, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Recently when we were in the Savannah, GA/Hilton Head, SC area there was an eating experience I wanted to share with Tall & Handsome. A few years back when I had been in Savannah I had ventured out to Tybee Island on recommendation to The Crab Shack. The Crab Shack’s slogan is “where the elite… Continue reading Where the Elite Eat in Their Bare Feet…and Watch Those Toes!, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Nautical Flags at Harbour Town Pier, by Beverly Hicks Burch

I love nautical flags. For years I have sworn I would make a quilt using the designs from nautical flags. They’re so bright and cheerful and happy. I think it’s the primary colors that give them away… As a matter of fact, if you are a quilter as well as a traveler and photographer, here… Continue reading Nautical Flags at Harbour Town Pier, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Red Hibiscus, by Beverly Hicks Burch

I love Hibiscus, especially red hibiscus. For some reason they remind me of Hawaii. These were growing at the base of the Harbour Town Lighthouse on Hilton Head Island. As we sat in rocking chairs and gazed out at the marina the nearby café just happened to have live outdoor music. Guitar Man struck up… Continue reading Red Hibiscus, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Colors at the Beach, by Beverly Hicks Burch

There are certain rewards to climbing 114 stairs to the top of a lighthouse…the view being at the top of the list. To many of you those 114 steps may not seem to be a big deal, but for me it was a milestone and major accomplishment. For, you see I am disabled. I have… Continue reading Colors at the Beach, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Harbour Town Lighthouse on Hilton Head Island, SC, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Tall & Handsome and I were in Savannah for a few days to take care of some business. Imagine our surprise when we found out we were just a hop, skip and jump away from Hilton Head, SC. Another place to mark off my list of “places to visit” was within a 45 minute drive.… Continue reading Harbour Town Lighthouse on Hilton Head Island, SC, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Pink Oleander, by Beverly Hicks Burch

I love Oleander, although it is poisonous if ingested. So, I certainly don’t plan on creating a meal using oleander. It’s purely a feast for the eyes. This lovely pink oleander is found growing on Tybee Island, GA. © 2012 Beverly Hicks Burch All Rights Reserved.   Save
