Day 45 "Cumberland Island Beach house"

"An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day." Henry David Thoreau
My trip to Cumberland Island was like an early morning walk; a blessing for the whole day except for the no-see-um bugs. :-)
This the the beach house or ferry house at Plum Orchard. The round structure is more resistant to hurricane winds and I wonder if they knew that when they built it in the 1930s.
I love the light and shadow cast on the gravel road by the live oaks covered with moss. The island had a special light that permeated everything.
