Guide Our Feet into the Way of Peace, by Beverly Hicks Burch

“Guide our feet into the way of peace.” Luke 1:79 “Darkness reigns at the foot of the lighthouse.” ~ Japanese Proverb ~ Since last Tuesday I’ve felt like I have been living in a vacuum - you know that feeling of emptiness and void. I’ve had writer’s block like I’ve not had in a long,… Continue reading Guide Our Feet into the Way of Peace, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Winter’s Bone Structure, by Beverly Hicks Burch

“I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape – the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show.” ~ Andrew Wyeth ~ A little over three years ago Tall & Handsome and I went to Minnesota to spend Thanksgiving with… Continue reading Winter’s Bone Structure, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Trimaran and Golf, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Today’s picture is another one taken from atop Harbour Town Lighthouse on Hilton Head Island, SC. Tall & Handsome informed me this fine vessel is a trimaran, meaning there is a hull and two outriggers. He is the one with past sailing experience having grown up in Florida. Imagine that combination…a sailing Southwestern cowboy. He’s… Continue reading Trimaran and Golf, 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

Cockspur Island Lighthouse (GA), by Beverly Hicks Burch

This is Cockspur Island Lighthouse, one of the Southern lighthouses of the USA. It’s set on a little piece of land between Fort Pulaski (GA) and Tybee Island (GA) in the Savannah River. As you can see, the lighthouse is in disrepair. I can’t recall ever seeing a lighthouse in this state of ruin. If… Continue reading Cockspur Island Lighthouse (GA), by Beverly Hicks Burch

Tybee Island’s Beacon of Hope, by Beverly Hicks Burch

I took this on a very, very windy day standing on top of the ramparts of Fort Pulaski (GA). It was so windy I could hardly hold the camera steady to get a photo that wasn’t blurred. This is Tybee Island Lighthouse and it’s about a mile away from Fort Pulaski. That palm tree in… Continue reading Tybee Island’s Beacon of Hope, by Beverly Hicks Burch

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

Travelogue, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Travelogue By Beverly Hicks Burch Friday I spent seven and a half hour driving in a Jeep by myself to see my Tall & Handsome. After almost seven years of marriage we’re still kind of like newlyweds and anytime apart is sorely felt. I spent a lot of time reflecting on our history yesterday…replaying some… Continue reading Travelogue, by Beverly Hicks Burch
