    The park is my mental escape; when life is too much, I close my eyes go to park bench, watch kids, see lighthouse, pier and beach and smell ocean-ahh! Eugenia Price and her island stories are a must-read to personalize the cemetary at Christ's Church!

    I agree that Eugenia Price's books are "must reads" and your tips on Saint Simons Island are must reads too.

    This is my favorite place in the US. Before going, Eugenia Price's books are a must read.

    Ahhhh, that long beach LOOKS nice, but hard sand and strong currents - uh, oh. Great page.

    No worries - no direct hits since 1964. We are VERY well protected on St. Simons from tropical weather! :)

    Great sunsets & sunrises! You obviously love Georgia's Golden Isles and have done them justice with more great pics and info. Thanks.

    More excellent pages. I visited St. Simons many times when I lived in Georgia. I've got to take Karen back to the lighthouse someday. Stephen

    A great page about what looks like a beautiful island. I'd love to visit some of the coastal areas of the southeast U.S.
