This is one of my favorite places in the whole world! My husband is from Brunswick, GA and we always try to stop by the beach for a bit during our trips home. Driftwood beach is almost surreal when you are there. The island is shifting, and the live oak trees that were once on the edge of the ocean are killed by the salt water….leaving somewhat of a tree graveyard. It is absolutely stunning, and one of the most peaceful places. Very few people are ever there, and it seems to be one of the few places that feel untouched. If you have never been I urge you to go and see it!
To get to Driftwood beach you have to walk through a path in the woods…it’s a beautiful walk, but it doesn’t compare to what you see when you get to the end…..

Rocks are placed across the edge of the water to help prevent even further erosion
….but the salt water pulls the roots of the trees right out of the ground.

This is where my husband proposed….sitting in the tree with the ocean waves crashing around us.
One of my favorite places in the world!
Sadly it gets more and more brittle as the years go by. We try to take lots of pictures of it before it breaks apart.
There’s my husband, Phillip walking on the beach just to give you a view of the size of these trees.
The sunset was gorgeous that evening!
