Cumberland Island

One of my summer trips included a visit to Cumberland Island, near St. Marys, GA. There's a ruin of an old "summer cottage" that is still pretty impressive, even in its advanced state of decay. I'd recommend taking a day trip to the island with either St. Marys, GA or Fernandina Beach, FL as a starting point. The beach on the ocean side of the island is pristine, and the trails that wind under the canopy of the maritime forest are great. The island also has wild horses, which are a holdover from the plantations and summer retreats that used to exist there. Below are some pictures I took while I was there.
