St Simons Island Lighthouse (view from the pier)
From the end of the fishing pier, looking back at the island, the St. Simons Island Lighthouse is one of only five surviving light towers in Georgia. It is still operational and casts its light as far as 18 miles out to sea. The lighthouse is open to tourists.
The brown house with the double porches to the left of the lighthouse is the house we rented 20 years ago and remains for me the scene where my love affair with the island began.
