The Indian

Dad left us even before his death. I blame it somewhat on football and the injuries he sustained playing with little to no head protection "back in the day." But while he was here, he was a force to be reckoned with. I have a feeling that as a young man, he stole many women's [...]

Let’s Hike Tennent Mountain!

This past weekend we all pitched in and helped to get the Balsam house open and ready to be "base camp" for our hike to Tennent Mountain; and, hopefully, Max Patch. For a while rain was coming down pretty hard but that did not dampen our spirits. I love screen doors! I once added a [...]

This past Saturday we hiked to Pickens Nose in North Carolina.

When we left the boat ramp, the sun was out and the sky was filled with white puffy clouds. A good sign, right. Well, the weather quickly changed. [...]

Stepping Back in Time — The King and Prince

I love this place. So many, many memories were built here on St. Simon's. So, many hours spent here. Some things just never change and the King and Prince is pretty much one of those places. So, it was a Perfect Day as Cokie Berenyi would say. We took kayaks out to Sea Island in [...]
