This is a brand new blog and one I have long wanted to begin.  There is an art to living on an island, and we like to think that we have found how to let that art create us.  This kind of art is like art in reverse, instead of we creating it, it creates us.  It whispers into our souls and calms our minds.  It fills us with the smiles of the people we meet here and provides us with moments of deep meditation.

The first thing that happens when you live on this kind of an island....your measure of gratitude starts to abound.  Each week, or maybe more, I hope to introduce  you to the simple, the spectacular and the poetry of where we live.

Fort Clinch State Park is an historic park, in that it houses a civil war fort.  It abounds in wild marsh and
seascapes such as the one above.  It also boasts of trails along a forest bordering marsh and sea,  We love to walk here.  Each time we go we find a new corner to discover, or the weather, as it did above,
gives us a whole new vision of nature in all her glory.
