Discover Escapades!Your all-inclusive excursions to Georgia's Barrier Islands of Sapelo, Cumberland, Jekyll and St. Simons.

Sapelo Island is not one of the Barrier Islands one can just visit on a whim as all visits by non-residents must be prearranged.  Visitors must have a reason to get on the ferry, and this Escapade is the perfect reason!

There is a haunting mystery about Sapelo Island that is almost indescribable…one must experience the island to feel it. The oldest Native American civilization in the state of Georgia can be found on Sapelo Island.  A portion of Sapelo Island’s residents today are direct descendants of the 400 slaves from West Africa and the West Indies brought to the US by Thomas Spalding and, if you speak with them, they will proudly tell you what generation they are! Join us October 2-4, 2015  FOR DETAILS AND REGISTRATION...

Meet Robert Stephens...

Robert Stephenson

Photography is my passion - nature is my refuge. Combine the two, and that is where I am most at peace.

I am a self-taught photographer and writer who has taken many landscape photos on my travels through the Southeast United States over the past seven years, and I chronicled those travels in two self-published books. Recently I have sought to take my passion to a higher level, with a thirst for not only seeking out beautiful, unique, and dramatic vistas, but also a quest for never ending improvement in my work. My images have been used by various entities such as Honda and Roanoke Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau, and published in magazines including Landscape Photography Magazine, Blue Ridge Country, and Golden Isles Magazine

These are just a few examples of Robert's gorgeous work.  You can see more on his Facebook page Solitary Traveler Photography
