"Last night we went down to the Grange dock. The moon was a crescent rising in the west. Water in the creek was still, like a mirror. The reeds in the marsh were smooth, like velvet. We saw Jupiter and 4 moons."

J.C. 1982 from The Grange guest book on Cumberland Island

"I would say 'breathe deeply' and you would remember that smell for the rest of your life; the bold, fecund aroma of the tidal marsh, exquisite and sensual, the smell of the South in heat, a smell like new milk, semen and spilled wine, all perfumed with seawater."

Pat Conroy from the Greyfield Inn guest book
