We have a winner folks!!

Happy Saturday, readers. Sorry this took so long to pick a winner of Murray’s book, but my to-do list escapes me whenever far from home! Thanks to Jorie for reminding me to pick a winner! We pulled a number out of a hat….and Cheryl Baranski was our winner of The Face of Heaven by Murray Pura. This is one lovely book about the Amish during the American Civil War. Cheryl, if you would contact me at maryeellis@yahoo.com I will see that you get a copy of Murray’s book.

We are completing our second week on the barrier island of Jekyll Island GA. My dear husband is on vacation, but alas I must write here to meet my deadline for book 3 of the New Beginnings series, A Little Bit of Charm. It has been wild here lately. The surf is very high, as is the tide. The naturalist said these are the highest tides in the US. and this is the highest tide time of the year. The difference between high tide and low is a full 9 feet! For someone who lives closes to fresh-water Lake Erie, this is hard to contemplate until you see it for yourself.

I hope you enjoy these photos, and are happily preparing for a blessed Thanksgiving! Have a lovely weekend, readers. and Cheryl, sorry I took so long to honor my promise.

  1. PS: By ‘nice weather’ I overlooked when you said ‘high tides’,… I simply meant that your having overcast or what appears to be overcast days. Those are my favourites in the South, because you can walk in brisk breezes, have the winds kiss your cheeks, and not feeling like an oppressive sun is beating down on you! In other words: my little slice of Heaven! 🙂 Stay safe and warm!

  2. Thanks for the shout-out!! 🙂 I’m simply overjoyed that your having nice weather and that the muse is with you as you write! I must admit, I do miss walking on a beach or by the seaside! I live further inland now, but I still enjoy cypress groves and the water fowl that call freshwater home! Its just as awe-inspiring but your quite right: nothing like the sounds of the sea to encourage you! I’ve not yet passed through Jeykell Isand, but I’ve been to St. Simons & New Brunswick! Their ‘stew!’ is heaven in a bowl! We even bought a poster with the recipe on it! Continued blessings to you and yours this Thanksgiving!
