After completing my duties as live in housekeeper, making the condo immaculate before the arrival late this afternoon of the primary shareholder, I went for what has become my routine walk, through our grounds, out to the end of the condo’s pier, which you see above, through the grounds of Civil War Fort Mitchell to observe the construction progress of The Charles, the condo regrettably replacing what was the best restaurant on the island, The Old Fort Pub, then down to the marina’s pier, and back home. In all a mile and a quarter, mostly in shade.
The condo pier is not for launching boats. It ends in a platform with rocking chairs and benches for residents to be out in Skull Creek. The platform is rectangular, not scalloped as appears in the panorama shot on my iPhone 12 Pro. As you can see the despised ferry boat is still in the marina. I have been told repeatedly that it is due to be towed away any day, but any day never comes, so I’ve stopped asking.
These three were taken from the marina’s pier. Spartina for Steve Earley, though I confess I like it too, and a Great Egret. There are two species of egrets here. Great and Snowy. Yellow beak and black feet: Great. Black beak and yellow feet: Snowy.
