Thanks for visiting my blog! As you may know, I started posting about my trek through “The Coastal South” on Instagram one year ago. If you want to see where I started, you can follow me @thecoastalsouth. Or, if you're more of a Facebook person, visit https://www.facebook.com/thecoastalsouth/
At first, I wasn’t sure if anyone would be interested in my pictures or research. Man, was I wrong! After gaining a following, I have decided that it’s finally time to work on a better platform. After all, it’s been tricky squeezing so much information into those tiny Instagram captions!
I have loved each and every one of your comments, messages, and suggestions – even meeting some of you guys in-person! Thanks to you, I’ve gotten to learn so much more about this beautiful coast. I’ve also begun contributing to a few local magazines!
I’m looking forward to using this blog to provide more pictures and information about the sites I visit. Here, you can find locations, sources, and details ad nauseam!
I was born and raised in a small coastal town in Georgia. Here, I developed a great appreciation for the outdoors – mostly the sea, its marshes, beaches, and maritime forest.
I also found that when I understood the history of a place, I enjoyed it that much more.
So, naturally, I got a degree in the Southern Studies Concentration (English/History of the American South). I’ve since worked as a writer by trade and an explorer by choice.
I hope to help anyone learn something new, remember something old, find adventure, or just see some cool photos!
