Driftwood--10-Edit-Edit

Continuing my walk-about series as our coastal population expands with the warmest season of the year, we explore what locals call “Driftwood Beach” on Jekyll Island. This secluded shore on the northern tip of Georgia’s Jekyll Island attracts and intrigues with its ghostlike projections scratching skyward; reaching upward from a forgotten landscape.

Seductive and alluring, these tortured formations beckon the climber. The child. The romantic. And always the photographers.

Here, on this beach, this haven, Nature provides an artful sanctuary in our own backyard. A visual treat. A garden of textures.

Visit once and discover it again at day’s end. Dawn. Twilight. Experience for yourself how the character of this beach transforms dramtically with the tides, the seasons, the light. And make it your own treasured memory. Just as we have: the “permanent tourists”.
