A flagrant plug for Little St. Simon’s Island

We’ve just gotten back from 6 days on this amazing island. I’m going to show you some pictures of the lodge and at the end of those photos will be a link to their web site. Check the place out if you like an intensive luxourous nature retreat on 10,000 acres of unspoiled lowcountry habitat.

Goodbye Little St. Simon Island

We are saying goodbye to this place tomorrow and heading back home to Maine. It has been an extraordinary few days. The owners of this place try terribly hard to leave nature alone. We humans are guests but we don’t belong here. We can look and learn but we must stay out of the way and leave the island’s natural processes alone.

Lately I’ve come back often to the realization that the words “natural resources” used together are dangerous. A “resource” is something that can be used and by inference used up. This planet just can’t be treated as expendable. We depend on its health for our very lives.

Thank you Little St. Simon Island! We will miss you.

The “Owl Prowl”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The other evening after supper a bunch of us went out with a guide, Rachael, looking for screech owls. She had a bird call app on her phone that she had hooked up to a small speaker and pretty soon we heard 2 or 3 owls answering her. Using spotlights with a red beam, a little owl was soon seen perched way up high in a tree.

The consensus of those on the “Owl Prowl” was that listening to the birds answer Rachael’s bird calls was more fun than actually spotting the tiny bird.
