Giveaway Winner & Getaway!!


Omg...my sweet hubby surprised me with a pre-hunting season romantic getaway to one of our favorite places, Jekyll Island, Georgia!

This is the very familiar view from our balcony!


I love this time of the year there, because it's cooler and we practically have the place to ourselves!  I couldn't see anyone else on the beach for at least 1/2 mile!  The water blends in with the very overcast sky beyond
the dunes. 


I spent some time alone down at the beach, sitting on the huge granite stones they use to slow down beach erosion...
it was so peaceful, and serene.


A shrimp boat heads out early seeking
the sea's bounty.


Craggy oaks that are wind barriers
for the inner island.  Kind of spooky looking,
but so cool!

I love driftwood beach at the north end
of the island.  It is full of huge trees, trunks, roots, and branches that have been downed by erosion and heavy winds.  They are like nature's sculptures, each one different than the other. And they cover the whole northeast and northern parts of the island.


I found a few nice pieces of driftwood, but there are mostly reeds from the surrounding marshes on the shore.

We had a wonderful time, just us two,
and love taking the time to reconnect
with each other! 

Now for the big announcement!!

The winner of the giveaway is

sweet Nellie, from Nellie's Cozy Place.

Her entry was number 12 and that is the 
the one random number generator chose!!

I have known Nellie for well over 25 years,
and she is a wonderful friend!  I hope you will go meet her!  She is just so warm and
welcoming!!

Hope your week is wonderful!!
Are ya'll ready for the holidays?
I can't believe they are almost here!!

Hugs!!!
Becky
