Alphabe-Thursday - E is for Eden

Good Morning Mrs. Matlock. I have my paper prepared and ready to turn in. You look lovely today, Mrs. Matlock. Would you care for an apple? Yes, I'm being a little Eddie Haskell today. Time to visit Jenny Matlock for Alphabe-Thursday. This week our letter is E.

E can stand for so many things. But for me, this week, it stands for Eden. As in St. George Island, Florida. This gorgeous barrier island lies just south of the Florida panhandle on the Gulf Coast. It is known as the "forgotten coast". St. George Island has no high rise condos, no amusement parks, not much of anything but homes, a few shops and some restaurants. Wi-fi is available in a few places, cell phone service is spotty at best, and the TV reception leaves alot to be desired. In other words, Eden...

From sunrise....


There is time to walk along the beach....

Build a sandcastle ....

And at the end of the day, you can sit on the porch and see this ...


And then of course, it's time to go to bed so that you can get up and do it all again.
Like I said, Eden! Make sure to visit Jenny and see what everyone is sharing for the letter E today!

The sunset is truly amazing, Kat. I don't believe I have been to St. George Isl and I am missing a lot. I am probably not too far from it right now. ....Christine

Oh, yes! Thanks for sharing these photos of Eden. Beautiful spot, and I didn't know of St. George Island.

Shellbelle said...

This is my favorite type of beach in Florida — away from the maddening crowds and the tourists, except you, of course!

RNSANE said...

Looks lovely, much more appealing to me than the chaos of Miami!

Oh, it has been so long since I've been to a beach on the East coast. That was lovely. I wonder if I could con my husband into taking Granddaughters there.

We usually head up North to Oregon which is also beautiful...but just different...

Hmmm....

And thank you for the compliment.

Here I was worried that you might be dismayed with my hair sticking out every which way and no make-up!

It's good to know I've still "got it"!

And you've got it, too, with this E xcellent "E" post!

A+

Laurie said...

mrs. c said...

This is one of our favorite beaches to visit! It reminds me of the "old time" beaches we visited as children. Kinda like Gulf Shores 40 years ago, great photos!

Love your post, I would really like to visit that area. I love to walk on the beach. Here in Michigan we have a lot of beeches but it is nothing like an ocean beach. I've only been once and I would go every time I would have a chance if I could. Thanks for stopping by!

Porch Days said...

Your Eden looks lovely! I grew up near the ocean and I really miss being at the beach in an hour!
