This past June, Great Southern Land hosted an exhibitor booth at the Alabama State BAR Convention in Destin, Florida. The emerald beaches were beautiful. My wife, Jamie, and I are always looking for some destination that is undisturbed and off the beaten path. Once the conference was over, we took off heading east along the coast. We stopped at St George Island. It’s a barrier island about 28 miles long and 1 mile wide at its widest point. It’s informally divided into 3 sections. The furthest west area is a private gated community with its own airstrip and includes some of the most expensive multimillion-dollar homes along the Gulf Coast. The center section of the island consists of small businesses, restaurants, and homes. There are no high rises anywhere on the island and the tallest structure is the lighthouse. The eastern 9 miles, our favorite, is St George Island State Park. Talk about pristine…9 miles of undeveloped shoreline. Most of the land in the park looks like it would have hundreds of years ago. It supports habitat for migratory birds to make a stop along their journey and loggerhead sea turtles use the beaches to dig their nest and lay their eggs. I took several photos but because of the migratory birds, drone photograph is not allowed. Hope you enjoy.
