I love this part of Georgia; I always thought it had a strange, yet beautiful atmosphere, somewhat mysterious. It feels very isolated from the rest of the country, despite being between Jacksonville and Savannah. I went to Jekyll Island for my high school's senior class trip, and we felt like we'd entered another world. Looks like it could use an economic boost, though: while there we drove down a long road that was lined almost entirely with abandoned buildings.

I think the same thing. I’d like to be in St. Simons Island.

The best place that fits your dearm of retiring, moving and disappearing is Thailand, no kidding.

Nice pictures! Brunswick looks like a smaller version of Savannah, or maybe a little bit of Charleston in there too.

^ i do not doubt you one bit, that sounds great.

however, oldens need healthcare.

thats why i say more practically speaking athens over brunswick. i was guessing university of georgia has a medical school there.
