Greetings from the sweet coast town of Sunbury, the original county seat of Liberty County Georgia.
A short drive from the new county seat of Hinesville, Savannah to the north, and Saint Simons Island to the south, Sunbury is well worth seeking out.
You will find wonderful views of Sunbury Harbor at the Sunbury Crab Co. This laid back dining establishment has sweet fried shrimp, calamari, and the best coleslaw I have ever had. And lots and lots of lemonade! I was parched after a day of exploring. They just kept them coming.
At the local pier and boat ramp, you can also drop a line. It is fully accessible to the handicapped and a good spot for river fishing or just enjoying the views.
Fort Morris, an 18th century earthwork fort and nature site, is also nearby for a bit of local history. When I return in December, I would like to join them for A Colonial Christmas being held on Saturday, Dec 3, 2016 from 5 PM to 8 PM. The park staff will be offering colonial refreshments, a yule log, bonfire, 18th century music, caroling, dance and firing of the Christmas guns.
The area also offers one family-owned bed and breakfast, Dunham Farms located on a 30 acre estate. The gorgeous tree lined road shown below is on the way to their location. While I did not stay here during this trip, this coastal hideaway has a solid 5 star rating on TripAdvisor and offers many activities to truly enjoy the area.
