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

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

Cotton Bolls, by Beverly Hicks Burch

For years cotton was King in the South. You could probably go as far to say the South was built on cotton in the early days. It was grown just about every where in the South. A Sunday drive out in the country would reveal fields and fields of cotton as far as the eye… Continue reading Cotton Bolls, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Navigating the Maze on Driftwood Beach, by Beverly Hicks Burch

…and this my friends is the “driftwood” on Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island (GA). As you stand and look down the beach you see a solemn graveyard of old Southern live oak trees that gave up the “ghost” long ago to wind, surf and erosion. It’s an interesting maze to navigate as you make you… Continue reading Navigating the Maze on Driftwood Beach, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Jekyll Island, St. Simons Island and the Lighthouse, by Beverly Hicks Burch

In the foreground is what passes as driftwood on Jekyll island (GA) on appropriately enough Driftwood Beach. The driftwood here is actually the remains of ancient Southern live oaks that have given up the ghost to years of surf, wind and erosion. The leftover remnants of those ancient trees lay on the beach like giant… Continue reading Jekyll Island, St. Simons Island and the Lighthouse, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Darien Methodist Church, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Thanks to John Wesley and the Scots, the Methodist flourished in this part of Georgia. As a matter of fact, John Wesley himself visited the Scots in Darien in 1737 and as a result had an indirect affect in helping this little church be built. It was the faith he built and stirred in the… Continue reading Darien Methodist Church, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Next time you’re having a particularly difficult day at work, home or where ever, take a look at this picture. I don’t know about you, but I find this an amazing gob of mess of lines, strings and nets. I could never make heads or tell out of any of it.

And, Where Do You Get Your Shrimp? by Beverly Hicks Burch

And how do you get you shrimp? I take mine Scampi, broiled, boiled and any tasty way I can find them… I have a sneaking suspicion most of think our shrimp come from sources like the picture above. But, that’s not necessarily so. A lot of shrimp we buy and eat nowadays are pond raise… Continue reading And, Where Do You Get Your Shrimp? by Beverly Hicks Burch

Amazing Grace, by Beverly Hicks Burch

On Mother’s Day, Tall & Handsome and I decided to take out on a little Sunday jaunt. It was a combination “Mother’s Day, (his) birthday and we need a distraction” venture. (I’ll also admit to a little outlet shopping…) I had heard that we needed to visit a little town called Darien (GA). One of… Continue reading Amazing Grace, by Beverly Hicks Burch
