It’s as primitive as can be, a tiny island off the coast of Georgia that’s accessible only by boat. And the only residents have wings.
We kayaked over yesterday to do a little exploring, and believe me, it was well worth the effort. The weather was gorgeous (82 degrees), and the skies were a brilliant blue, with a hint of a few clouds on the horizon, an approaching front that delivered on its promise to bring rain today.
The tide was on its way out, which allowed us the opportunity to see the oyster beds as we approached. Kayakers are often treated to the sight of small sharks feeding in and around those beds. Another treat is to see dolphins swimming nearby.
We beached our kayaks, stripped off the life jackets, and set out hiking in the sand. And…wow! The island is truly deserted, and as far as the eye can see is…well, have a look for yourself…
We were joined by a third paddler on the way back, a pelican that kept showing off his diving and fishing skills.
