Where you Live

The dust will wait is our gracious hostess this week and here is what she said--The subject: Show me in pictures or tell me in words what defines the place where you live. I want to leave the interpretation open to include any possibility.

Since we are lucky enough to spend the winters in the south, we go to Brunswick Georgia. The official name for the area is "Brunswick Golden Isles" this incorporates, the town of Brunswick, Jekyll island and St Simons island. I mostly did photos and a short explanation.

Brunswick is a mix of industry, college and tourism.

The sydney lanier Bridge

The poet of The Marshes of Glynn

The first pot where the famed Brunswick stew was made


Jekyll Island is all tourism


Beautiful Old oak trees thoughout the island


white sandy beaches to lounge on


St Simons Island is also tourism


This is one of tree spirits you see carved in the trees

They boast beautiful oak trees also

That about shows where we live in the winter , it is a very nice area and we enjoy our stay here.
Now go see where the rest of the FMers live click here
Attention all my bloggy friends --- I am having my very first give away/pay it forward. Come visit me on thursday for all the details, hope to see you then.

You spend your winters in a very nice place. Perhaps, I can visit in person some day. If not, your pictures gave a lovely introduction.

Brunswick is so pretty... my BIL is trying to get another job up there. They moved here so their daughter could go to FSU, but then she fooled them all and got a free ride in the Air Force. Go figure.

Looks like a wonderful place to just roam around with a camera.

Thanks for the visit on my blog today. :)

I've always been a huge fan of suspension bridges, and yours looks like a fine example. Great entry.

Lil Mouse said...

I love the trees. it makes me long for a beach trip to SC where I visited my husband to be all those years ago..

Hayden said...

love that strong line of the bridge bed w/ the net of spider webbing above holding it up.... the oak trees are also fabulous!

Peter said...

A beautiful spot to winter in, thanks for the tour.
Thanks also for your comments about our awful bushfires, the death toll keeps rising, currently 173 and still rising.

Hootin' Anni said...

Thanks for the birthday wishes you left for me in my comments!!!

Jane said...

I loved all these pictures. My husband and I have visited that area many times. On St. Simon's Island is a retreat center called Epworth by the Sea. We have spent many a wonderful time there.
Thanks for dropping by, I hope you come back!!

I'm finding out that several of our blog buddies are retirement wintering in warmer climes. I'd be careful if I were you Janis. From your comments I think several people are trying to wrangle a visit. Some sound like family so maybe you have to invite them! The rest of us would promise to be very good houseguests.

Do you know much about the tree spirit carvings? Sounds like a future blog post to me. . .

I'm coming to live with you. Now I have to research the poet, Lanier. One of my family names is Lanier and we are from the NC/SC/Georgia area. I have most of the family back to the 1700s, so I need to go look through my papers!
