the entire time I was there I was clouded out of a sunset, So knowing that I wasn't going to get the sunset I went to see what high tide looks like on the island. It was brutal.
During high tide the entire beach disappears and water crashes up onto the sand dunes and barrier rocks. I captured this about 45 minutes after sunset. the color comes from the city lights just behind the buildings.
Image is about 1 minute long. I had to hold the tripod down when a wave would come in, always fun. I'm at St Simons Island for a couple days. I came across these birds, no idea what kind they are. Captured at high tide when the oceans covers up the beach and tries to get over the sand dunes. At St Simons Island. Great place to view some birds in the winter and great beaches! Looking up the marsh as sun sets. The oldest standing church building on St Simon Island, Georgia. It was built in 1880 to serve the workers at the lumber mills located on the former Hamilton Plantation property. Completed in 1872 this is one of only five surviving light towers in Georgia. The St. Simons Lighthouse is one of only five surviving light towers in Georgia. An operational navigation aid for traffic entering St. Simons Sound, it casts its light as far as 23 miles out to sea. Unlike many other operational lighthouses, the St. Simons Lighthouse invites visitors to climb the 129 steps to experience views of neighboring Jekyll Island, the mainland (Brunswick), and the south end of St. Simons Island. It was built in 1872 and first automated in 1954. The museum on the grounds is quite informative. Adorable costal town!! Worth a trip for a weekend get away 🎣🍷❤️ The Avenue of Oaks. Planted in 1826 to provide an entrance to what was than a prosperous cotton plantation known as Retreat Plantation they now line the entrance road to a private community and golf course. One of two remaining slave cabins on what was the Hamilton Plantation. Since 1931 they have been used by the local garden club. The tree spirits of St. Simons Island are many many weathered faces carved in the oak trees of the island. A result of artist Keith Jennings leaving his mark on the island, the carvings depict the spirit of the sailors who lost their lives at sea while sailing on ships made from St. Simons Oak. This one depicted in the picture is one of the recent artworks, just next to the visitors center. When in St. Simons, looking for the tree spirits that are publicly accessible (many are on private property) is a fun past time. #TakeAHike A keepers view NOV 2017 Some things are worth waking up early for... 11/17 A beautiful location with decent restaurants. #stsimonsisland Day 5 of my road trip across the USA brought me to this amazing staircase that leads straight into the Atlantic Ocean on Sea Island in Georgia. I sat here and meditated while listening to the waves. 🌊 NOV 2017
