Friday was a perfect spring day and I was lucky enough to spend time with the very famous Craft Artist, Pam Martin in Historic Midway! This small southern community is about 30 minutes south of Savannah right off of Highway 17 ( the old coastal road before I 95 was built). Pam, her husband Joe and their beloved Golden Retriever Cobaka, live in a beautiful home Joe built right on the marsh . The town is covered with pink, coral and white Azalea plants and was breath taking! Pam’s studio is right next door to their home with the docks in front and a view that goes on for miles.
Pam is one of the most energetic people I know- in the course of 5 hours we had lunch, toured her art studio to see what was new, drove all thru Midway to shop her favorite junking stores and even went Letterboxing!. Lunch was all homemade by Pam and included cinamon raisin bread, grilled chunky chicken salad and of course her dark,gooey chocolate brownies… the only thing missing was her usual Peach Ice Tea- but hey- she couldn’t get to everything! Pam and Joe also make world class shrimp salad from Shrimp they catch right off their dock. She showed me her newest creations- Mermaids, Fish and Shrimp all made from dried goards and painted bright and cheery colors. HGTV was also there recently and will be featuring Pam and another dear friend and famous artist “Very Jeri” Gale on an upcoming show about American Crafts people. We’ll let you know the show date!
Be sure to check out Pam and Very Jeri’s art while visiting Tybee at Atlantic Beacon Gallery ( www.atlanticbeacongallery.com ) You can also visit her blog firstname.lastname@example.org Pam loves to blog and will fill you in on her daily adventures which will astound you! Read all about our letter boxing experience on her blog. I’ll keep you up to date as I discover the Tybee Letter boxes! Who knew such treasure were out there!
