A Visit to the Past
By Linda L
I loved going back to a past time in the history of St. Simon’s Island. As a newlywed Navy wife, I found myself living on that Island. I enjoyed learning the history then and now. It’s a timeless place that everyone should experience……….it’s as if it’s “my island”. Thanks to the author for taking me back.
