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

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

Guiding Light, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Guiding Light By Beverly Hicks Burch In 1986 I began a love affair that continues to this day. Although I had seen the object of my affection before, my passion came to fruition in the state of Maine. It was in that state that I became hopelessly and totally enamored with…lighthouses. There is just something… Continue reading Guiding Light, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Driving Miss Bevy, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Driving Miss Bevy By Beverly Hicks Burch It had been a very, very long time since I had smelled the fragrance of salt air that you can whiff only near the coastal areas of any body of ocean water, or for that matter felt the brisk sea breeze as it blew through my hair negating… Continue reading Driving Miss Bevy, by Beverly Hicks Burch
