This one was waaaaaaaaaaay up. You wonder how he got up there to do it!
Counting down the days now, we're into our last week away. We're both ready to come home. We miss everyone and the dogs too!
Yesterday, Ian and I spent the afternoon searching for tree spirits. Here's a little writeup about them, that I've taken from one of the Island publications:
These images, by an Island wood carver, immortalize the countless sailors who lost their lives at sea aboard the mighty sailing ships that were once made from St. SImons Island oak trees. Their sad sorrowful expressions seem to reflect the grieving appearance of the trees themselves with their drooping branches and moss.
We searched and searched but we only found two. Apparently there are many many more. There are thousands, upon thousands of Live Oaks on the Island, so, to find two was an accomplishment in itself.
Here's the pics
