Cumberland Island, Georgia

March 23, 2018 Cumberland Island, Georgia, USA

Yesterday my mom and I took a short forty-five minute drive from Aemilia Island, Florida, to the small town of St. Mary's, Georgia, where we were to board a ferry and embark on our journey to Cumberland Island. Having lived in southern Georgia as a girl, my mom had always dreamed of visiting this beautiful island, but had never had the chance to go. Now, many years later, she finally was able to fulfill her wish. 

Cumberland Island is known for it's big and beautiful protected beaches and dunes, Dungeness ruins which are the remains of a grand and exquisite mansion built by Thomas Carnegie, and its wide variety of wildlife. The natural beauty of this island was so pure and inspiring, and my mom and I feel certain that this will not be our last visit to Cumberland.
