A Quaint Little Town in Ga.

Last Sunday, Jer and I went to visit this most quaint little town just 16 miles north of Brunswick. It is called Darien, we have been there two other times, and it just keeps drawing us back. Their history goes way back to the 1700's, you can do a self guided walking tour around the town, which we did. This is art work done by the local people, it is under the overpass, very colorful!

This town has a big shrimp fleet

Look close at some of the wildlife lurking under water


Here are the fish that can be caught in this area

nothing left of the ruins except a few walls
Take a close look, the walls are made out of nothing but shells

After our little walk, we had lunch at Skippers Fish Camp

I am sure we will be back to visit this cute little place in the near future.

I am getting so excited about coming to GA just looking at these pics! Is that alligator real?? I especially love the turtle. It reminds me of Aqua and Elmer, our 2 lovely red-eared sliders. I will be posting about them in the near future, so be sure to visit www.livinglifeinpa.blogspot.com

How quaint. It's just the kind of thing I like to do in my own backyard. Our part of the country is full of "quaint".

I love the southeast. It reminds me of home, except for the whole boiled peanut thing.

Can't wait to visit Darien. Was the alligator captive or living in it's natural habitat?

Now that I looked closer, that's a picture of an alligator. You dupped me!
