When it comes to St. Simons real estate, there are man-made art galleries on offer and then there’s something else.
It’s the artistic displays created by Mother Nature. They’re all over the Golden Islands. You’ll especially see them in the salt marshes, on tree-lined avenues and decorating the beaches. Regarding the latter, it’s not uncommon to find a number of treasures, including driftwood.
Beach Finds at Local Shops
On St. Simons Island, driftwood is a naturally occurring phenomenon.
It is caused by wood that unexpectedly finds its way into the water and is subsequently tossed about until it eventually lands on St. Simon’s sandy shores. Many artists and beach combers like to collect it from time to time and create unique sculptures like the one found in the pier area’s shops. It can also be found at the artists’ outdoor markets that sometimes take place in the same area.
Beach Finds at the Park
Look for those events in the park nearest to the pier. They are usually hosted by the SoGlo Gallery staff and include a wide number of exhibitors. On a side note, there are currently markets planned for weekends in May (Mother’s Day), July (Independence Day) and August. Of course some homeowners also like to incorporate driftwood into their properties as well.
Beach Finds at Your Private Oasis
Some of the best places to find driftwood and other coastal gems are on Sunrise Way. Sunrise Way is home to beautiful, oceanfront homes for sale or rent. This 4,592-foot oceanfront home is a great example.
Perfect for beachcombers of all types, it boasts access to the shoreline, an outdoor shower and multiple sun decks. The private, outdoor shower is ideal for washing off beach finds and the home’s sun decks are wonderful spots to let them all dry off.
