"Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky."
Rabindranath Tagore, Stray Birds
I’ve spent a lot of fun times on East Beach at St. Simon’s Island. So when my husband Allen asked me, “Where would you like to live after we retire?” It was an easy answer. “East Beach,” I said. So maybe one day, the dream will be a reality.
This long, wide stretch of beach with magnificent views is probably on a lot of people’s wish lists. Since there’s always a beach, no matter what the tide, it is one of my favorite places to walk. I love to collect shells, watch the kites, and say hello to families on bikes ‒ all while birds wheel overhead.
One of the most popular spots is near the US Coast Guard Station at the end of Bruce Drive at Gould’s Inlet. The walk from there to the King & Prince, past The Beach Club and The Grand, gives a good workout with lots of beauty around you.
