We go to Jekyll Island quite often. Usually make at least one trip to St. Simon's. Now that I know about these carvings I will have to go see them.

LOL that's pretty cool

A good friend of ours lived down there for quite awhile with his wife. He passed away last year but his stories of St. Simons have always made me want to go down and visit.

For starters, here's a map:

https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid...5a893d8c&msa=0

(or google "tree spirits of st simons island")

The first two are in the back yard of an abandoned house on Demere Road across from Baisden Lane. They're hard to find, because they're so old and reclaimed. The third one is right beside Murphy's Tavern, across from the Dairy Queen. There's one in Red Fern shopping center off of Frederica Road, in front of a restaurant. Another is in front of Magnolia Manor, further out Frederica, in the parking lot.

Back down near the shopping village at the pier, there's a cluster in what I think used to be a park, but now is a new development of houses. It's a couple of blocks back up King's Way. The trickiest of the ones I actually found is way up Frederica, where it turns in to Point Road (or West Point Road, I can't remember), at the end of a side street called Middleton Place. It's right up by somebody's fancy home, you have to go up their driveway to see it. There wasn't anyone around to ask, so I ran up the driveway, took the photo, and ran away ;-)

On the map you'll see one further south, off of Sea Palms Drive. This one is apparently back in the woods by a creek. I didn't go tromping back there. I've heard it's easiest to get to by kayak.

Thanks, I have copied all and it will go in my Jekyll Island folder. We usually like to eat at the Red Barn, which is a ways out Frederika. It would be good to do both in one trip.

Have you ever eaten in the Red Barn? Great steaks.

We stayed at the King and Price at St Simons one time. Were sort tired of Jekyl.

Thanks again.

We've only stayed at St Simons By The Lighthouse - it's a little different, each room is owned by a different person, and the hotel manages the rooms. So there's no such thing as a "standard" room - each owner decorates theirs however they want. But our one stay was fine. Our daughter has been living there since September (she leaves in August), so that's where we've stayed since.

If you haven't eaten at Iguana's, and you like fried shrimp, it's a must. really good. Mullet Bay is very good. And there's two really good BBQ places on the island Southern Soul and Beachcomber.
