My Favorite Place to Refresh, Revive and Renew
I have been visiting Jekyll Island for many years with Roy, youth camps and librarian conventions but had not found Driftwood Beach until last year. It is located on the northern end of Jekyll and not until I stayed at Villas By the Sea last year did I discover this wonderful beach. I have linked the subtitle to information about how it was formed so I urge you to visit that link.
As I have strolled among the trees, I see all types of creatures - but then I find pictures in the clouds too. Many of them look like dragons and every time I go I see new ones.
This one shows some of the many pieces of driftwood on the beach and you can see how beautiful it is.
I see a dragon's head in this one but what I think it is so beautiful in the smoothness of the wood. The grain is wonderful and it is smooth as silk. Tide, blowing sand, and storms have smoothed it and made it beautiful.
I call this one the Guardian Dragon for he is watching the ocean and guarding the beach.
This one is just pretty with the smooth wood, the shadow and the moss growing on the wood.
I have seen several weddings, parties, anniversary celebrations, picnics and science club groups on the beach but I use it sit, think, pray and worship the God who made all of this.
It also reminds me that though life may uproot and toss us on the shores of life, tides wash us every day, sand rubs us, and storms beat us, we are beautiful.
