While on a recent business trip, I stopped in the sea-side city of Darien GA. This is a neat little town, where shrimp boats are docked and spanish moss grows on the trees.

A few boats from the shrimping fleet.

Darien was established in 1736, so there are several historic buildings here.

I finally had a little down-time while on a business trip and did a little exploring on St. Simons Island, in Georgia. We had a great fresh seafood meal at a little place called Catch 228 Oyster Bar and Grill. The food was GREAT and the prices were more than fair and were lower than we had anticipated.

After lunch, we went to St. Simons Pier Village. A neat area with fisherman catching the sea’s treasures and lots of shops selling clothing, seashells, antiques and everything else you can think of. This is also where the lighthouse is located.

There are several place to stay in this area, all of which seem to have a great view.

Some of the bridges in the area are spectacular.

There were several local fisherman working the pier.

Hopefully, I have time to visit this neat place again…when I have a little more time to explore.
