Please follow this link to my new blog, Vanishing Coastal Georgia. To those of you familiar with Vanishing South Georgia, it should be quite familiar, with only slight differences in the layout and appearance, but because of its limited geographical scope (Chatham, Bryan, Liberty, McIntosh, Glynn, and Camden counties) it will allow me to post larger images, and to take more artistic diversions on occasion. Due to continued overdevelopment, this region is in perhaps more danger than any other in the state of losing its historic identity and folkways. While I’m not against progress, as long as it attempts to reconcile and offset its harmful environmental excesses, I hope that enlightened leaders in the coastal counties will strive to save bits and pieces of their long and rich histories. Though its shores are among the most federally protected natural areas on the entire eastern seaboard, profit-driven speculators continue to attempt to weaken these safeguards, such as is the case on Jekyll Island and now we’ve learned, Sapelo Island, as well. This is where Georgia as we know it first came into being; where a small Gullah culture still holds onto its storied past; where wild horses brought by Spaniards still thrive on Cumberland Island. It’s the backyard of Oglethorpe; Button Gwinnett and Lachlan McIntosh; the increasingly threatened home of sea turtles and shrimpers alike. Please come along and enjoy the view, while you still can.
