Another perfect summer morning, another walk by the sea. This time I was on St. Simons Island, Ga - one of Georgia's Golden Isles, and the place that my very lucky sister calls home. This lighthouse sits in The Village on St. Simons, bordered by brick walks, pristine lawns, live oaks and palms.
The ocean is just to the left in this photo, where the view out to sea includes the northern tip of Jekyll Island.
Had the thermometer not been threatening to explode with the heat of the day, I'm quite sure I could have parked myself on a bench and spent the rest of the morning content just to be.
Don't you love a good lighthouse?
Tomorrow is Countdown Friday
THE COUNT WILL BE 65
Contentment - even in the heat of the day - is still a very good thing.
