See ya next year!

This Summer while fishing around Cumberland Island, Danny & I decided to walk up to the ruins of the Old Dungeness Mansion. I have been here several times but it was Danny's first.

The place is still beautiful. But oh I wonder what this home was like back in it's day? After visiting there this Summer, I read a book called Strong Women, Wild Horses by Charles Seabrook. Current residents of the island are not fond of the book but I found it very interesting. It really took me back in time.

Blogger has been a pain, not allowing me to download photos. But finally...I can show you some Summer pictures.

We spent a week down at the coast fishing, mostly around Cumberland Island. When the tide was bad we would take little walking trips on the island.

This is George Carnegie's home as seen from the bank of the water.

After docking, this is the path you walk to get to the home. Those are some of Cumberland's famous wild horses.

You get a better glimpse of the home as you are walking up to it. Just beautiful!

This is the very back of the home.

This is the front of the home. No way to get a really good picture of it because it is sooo big. That is me on the front porch.

The National Park Service owns the house now. Money has been set aside to renovate it. Danny & I received an unofficial tour by a couple of really nice volunteers that are living there. They are helping with the renovations also.

I have a few pictures of the inside but to tell you the truth...they are poor quality. I was so awe struck and really did not try to capture the inside. If you want to know more about the home, it's previous owners and history, you can go to this nice fellas site. Mr. Lindsey does a fabulous job.

So where has the time gone? 2010 Is almost over? Can somebody please explain to me what the french toast is going on?

We've had some pretty fun times this past Summer. Since I didn't blog much (or at all), I think I will share a few memories over the next 2 weeks. So the count down is on.....15 days of Summer left....or is that 15 days til FALL!!! Win/Win in my book!

These are pictures from Little Package's first fishing trip to the Ohoopee river.

It is a cool, crisp 65 degrees on my porch this morning! I am so feeling Fall weather and all the wonderful things that come with it.
What is it like at your house today? Are you feeling Fall yet?

Since I am again without a camera...these poor shots were the best I could do when I tried to capture the pretty rainbow we saw last weekend.

68 Degrees!

Sent from my BlackBerry Smartphone provided by Alltel

For the past several mornings...Mother Nature has been teasing me with a hint of Fall weather.
Blogging...it seems many of my old blogging friends have cut back to bare minimum or have stopped all together.
Is it a phase?
I really like to blog..I love to look at other's blogs most of all. With my job, my granddaughter, and no working camera for months....I have just let it slide.
So what to do...what to do?
