I just got back from an amazing long weekend from Cumberland Island. Adults only!! This is the third time we've gotten to go with JT's friends, aka the Chicken Gang. The Warrens, our host, own property at High Point and we get to stay in this rustic, lodge-like house that has 8 bedrooms, a giant den with fireplace, a dining room with a 10' table and a two room kitchen, and this long porch with super comfy furniture overlooking the marsh. It's just incredible. We ate amazing food, had a low-country boil, went clamming, spent afternoons on the beach (of course) and took pics of wild horses. The live oaks surrounding the house must be 100 years old, spanish moss hanging, it's so beautiful. The surrounding forests are full of palmettos and huge wild grapevines climb the trees-you could seriously swing from those suckers! We take 4 wheelers and trucks right out to the beach, park it and set up camp. No one is on the beach, we are completely isolated. We are so fortunate to have the opportunity to come here every year. I'm already looking forward to the next trip!
