The marsh can be cool if you have never seen it before. I guess we were not too blown away since we have seen lots of saltwater marsh on Jekyll island.

The title of my review is the title of probably the most famous poem by the fine 19th century poet Sidney Lanier (a native of Macon in mid-state, not the Low Country) who was dazzled by the vast expanse of these marshes between the land and the sea, and concluded "Oh like to the greatness of God is the greatness...

You can see the marshes from a park along Highway 17 in Brunswick. A better way to see them and walk parts of the area is to go across the Lanier Bridge and visit the Earth Day Nature Trail. Lovely spot with good trails and better views of marshes.

Well, it's a bar...... with tables. Had excellent fish tacos, and the best peel and eat shrimp ever. The challenge in this area is to find shrimp that have not been boiled till they are hard and dry, and these guys really know shrimp. Also, good draft beer that isn't flat, another local challenge.

This is a small park right off Route 17 in Brunswick right along the river. There is some bird watching, particular at low tide when there are a lot of sandpipers, but it's not spectacular.

If you haven't been to Overlook Park lately, you need to schedule a visit. Great .place for a picnic. They have upgraded the "park" with a new walk-way over the marsh. It is quite a show place and a good place to slow-down your pace of living & enjoy "the marshes of glynn"

This is a nice place to pull off and just relax for a while. This year the Roseate Spoonbills are roosting in a large tree that one can spot from the park. Binoculars are recommended.

The colors change with the season,making viewing the marshes an ongoing marvel. The greens of the spring and the green and blacks of the summer as plants react to the temperatures of summer and then the golden glows of fall and winter are so very interesting to observe and enjoy.
