Categories Uncategorized Ruined Grandeur Post author By Rebecca Post date Wednesday, February 2, 2011 4 Comments on Ruined Grandeur Looking through some old photos, I found these from my trip to Cumberland Island last fall, where nature is slowly reclaiming the old Carnegie estate. The last one is my favorite.

I guess the environment on Cumberland is very like your own island. The park ranger there said the wild horses have evolved over the time they have been there to be able to drink very saline water. I took a photo of a cool lizard on that very car. It’s bright green with a white throat. It also has a bright orange throat pouch that it was ‘puffing’ in and out rapidly – that’s what caught my attention. Do you know the name of this lizard? Yup, that would be a green anole, very common around here. I’ve yet to actually see one doing that display with its throat pouch (which is called a dewlap) – hopefully this spring. I especially like the photo with the mossy, mossy trees. I really like the image of the dilapidated car under the Oaks. Kinda says something to me about the enduring quality of trees.
