  •  I lived on Amelia Island (8+ / 0-)

    The northernmost barrier island just across the Amelia river from Georgia.   I was blessed to have a rundown old duplex, oceanfront,  with a hundred feet of dunes before the beach.  

    The dolphins and the pelicans, the osprey, the shorebirds, the mollusks in near and on the atlantic;

    Sea oats, sand spurs, and shore grape (?) amongst the dune plants;  

    Live oak, with spanish moss, palmetto and pine in the uplands;    Fort Clinch state park is beautiful, huge old sand dunes with deer and tortise.

    The inland sloughs and estuaries;

    Once even saw a cat at dusk.

    And the lightning.

    Beautiful and in places, if you squint and cover one eyeball, still wildish.
