Caladesi Island Beach. Accessible only by private boat or public ferry, Caladesi Island was named one of the best beaches in the nation in both 2006 and 2007. Blessed with the constant flushing action of hurricane pass, the water is generally translucent and the sugar-sand beaches stretch out for miles.
The Snowy Egret. This small white heron is often confused with it's cousin, the Great Egret. The Snowy Egret has a black bill and yellow feet, while it's larger cousin has a yellow bill and black feet.
A beautiful start to the day.
Sand Key, Florida. Underdeveloped, sugar-white sand beaches looking across the turquoise waves at the Clearwater Beach Skyline. Beauty like I've never seen! :)
The Robertson House at 308 South Green Street is an excellent example of a well-kept early Georgian Colonial type house, with it's two-story frame structure and white columns with balcony. The site was the home of Susan P. Hartsfield, wife of W.H. Hartsfield, pioneer citizen of Thomaston. It was later purchased in 1860 by Edmond B. Atwater, and in the 1880's was bought by Dr. Alfred H.

The Fincher Building. This is the oldest exsisting business building in downtown Thomaston. This two-story brick and cement plaster structure was built in the 1800's by Dr. John L. Cheney. It was in this building that the famous "Cheney's Expectorant", which became a household remedy throughout the South, was first manufacturerd. Also, in this building was the first telephone exchange in the city.
A secret place
A bench with a view. The Sunshine Skyway Bridge in background.
Honeymoon Island. Florida's ever changing barrier islands share a unique relationship with the sea. No place is this more evident than at Honeymoon Island, which was separated from nearby Caladesi Island by the hurricane of 1921. The constantly evolving shores and the adjacent sea grass beds, salt marshes and mangrove swamps, provide unique habitats for a variety of little noticed species here. Four miles of untouched beaches, scenic coastlines and diverse plant and animal life are all here
The Brown Pelican. Unlike it's cousin the white pelican, the brown feeds on schooling fish by making spectacular dives from high altitudes. The brown pelican, once dwindling in numbers, has made a strong comeback, thanks to strict conservation measures.
Sea Oats. Roots grow very deep( to secure freshwater) which helps stabilize dunes and protect the shoreline.
What a difference one single life can make. This is Gracie. My mother saved her from our local shelter a few years back, but I often wonder, who rescued whom?
The R.E. Lee Institute. This Neo-classical structure was chartered in 1875 as the Thomaston High School. The name was changed in 1882 to The Robert E. Lee Institute. It was reconstructed in 1922 following a severe fire, and today it is used as the city and county office complex. In the auditoriun there are full length oil portraits of General Robert E. Lee, for whom the school was named, and General John B. Gordon, who was born in Upson County.
