Our family’s favorite travel spots are historic sites and beaches, so it is no wonder that we are such fans of St. Augustine, Florida. In the area first explored by Juan Ponce de Leon 500 years ago, the city of St. Augustine was founded in 1565 by Spanish admiral Pedro Menendez de Aviles, and subsequently […]

Just across the St.Mary’s River from Georgia lies beautiful and historic Amelia Island, named for the daughter of King George II of England. (The state of Georgia was named for her dad, by the way!) Amelia is known as the Island of Eight Flags because of the numerous times it has changed hands in the […]

Great Escapes! Florida’s Emerald Coast

Candy

Candy

Candy is a southern girl who enjoys the simple things in life. Dirt road drivin’, Sunday afternoon nappin’, back yard swingin’, and sunset watchin’ are a few of the things that make her smile. She’s been married to her best friend and the love of her life for almost 25 years and is navigating motherhood with her 4 children, aged 23, 19, 14, & 11. Homeschooling for over 18 years now, she is also a bit of a word-nerd (ok, maybe more than a “bit” – she actually considers making lists of homophones to be entertaining), a lover of books and chocolate, a survivor of cancer, an author, and a hula hoop maker.

Ah, spring is in the air…and with that (for me, at least!) comes thoughts of summer!  And what says “summer” more than a trip (or 2) to the beach? We recently ran a post on Great Escapes on the Georgia Coast, but for you readers in the “wider reaches” of our region (or if you’re just […]

There was a time not so very long ago that travel by train was a common occurrence. You probably have parents or grandparents that can tell a story or two about their experiences aboard one. Even though this slower form of transportation has mostly been replaced today, our fascination with trains continues. Thomas the Tank […]

Ahhhh…..spring! Every year Mother Nature puts on a spectacular show here in the South as azaleas burst into bloom and daffodils dance against a backdrop of dogwoods and other blossoming trees. Meanwhile, the first tender shoots of flowers that we will enjoy later in the season break through the damp earth reaching for the warmth of the spring sunshine. […]

Although the two states are neighbors, a trip to the Georgia coast is a totally different experience than a Florida vacation. While tourism has been Florida’s bread and butter for years, much of the Georgia shoreline is comparatively undeveloped. Thanks to a history of land ownership and farsighted conservation laws like the Marsh Protection Act, […]

As most of the country recovers from an arctic blast that brought record-breaking low temperatures, you may have had enough cold weather to last you for a while. In southwest Georgia, where my family lives, we had weather that dipped into the teens (pretty frigid for us!), but we never got any of that powdery […]

Our family enjoys vacationing along the Georgia coast and, through the years, we have sought out many places a little off the beaten path. One of our favorites is Fort King George, a completely reconstructed wooden fort near the tiny fishing town of Darien. Fort King George is a state historic site that interprets the […]
