Sapelo Island

This past weekend, my lab-mate and I drove all the way up to Georgia so we could take transect samples along the Altamaha River.  We bunked at the University of Georgia Marine Institute located on Sapelo Island.

The island itself is highly protected – Only a small community of individuals live there permanently, many of whom can trace their lineage back to slaves that were brought to the island during the early 19th century.

There are really no words to convey the beauty of this place, so I will just let the photos speak for themselves:
