Rather then spend another Sunday just looking at each other, we decided to take a ride over to St. Mary’s. When we first moved here, Tom, Carrie and I lived in St. Mary’s until we had this house built in the next city, but in the same county. St. Mary’s is only about 12-14 miles from us. It professes to be the second oldest city in America. There was some speculation that St. Mary’s may be the oldest city and not St. Augustine. I have alway lived near the ocean. Tom and I both have fond memories of our childhood along the Atlantic Coast when we were growing up. We are still on the Atlantic coast and I am so happy that I can spend time along the seashore and smell the salty air.

St. Mary’s Georgia is the gateway to the Cumberland Island National Seashore. We took a fairy over Cumberland Island a few years ago. Dolphins were following us out into the sea. We hiked all around the island. I was in awe at all of the natural beauty. We encountered wild horses just roaming free all over the island. It was magical.
Today we also strolled around the historic section and just took in the magnificent day. We got Brian an ice cream cone and sat on the covered dock and peered out across the sea. Of course, I got many pictures and was just so happy to get out of the house if even for a while.
