A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.

 

A Boneyard tree's root system is exposed after massive erosion here on Jekyll Island.

 

Beach erosion occurs when waves and currents remove sand from the beach system. The loss of sand causes the beach to become narrower and lower in elevation. Storm waves carry the sand offshore, depositing and storing the sand in large sandbars. The image was captured on a small island off the Georgia Coast called Jekyll Island.

 

This was a perfect night where I slept in a hammock among the Boneyards with a millions stars to gaze upon.
