Richard Leo Johnson

We were delighted to welcome to Mermaid Cottages, the famous photographer and musican Richard Leo Johnson and his equally talented wife, Jane. Richard and Jane took a recent mini get away from their home in Savannah and stayed at the Enlisted Men’s Mess Hall. And Richard being Richard, couldn’t resist styling the home and performing some of his world class architectural photography. Richard has been featured in Coastal Living Magazine, Cottage Living Magazine and numerous books. http://www.coastalliving.com/ http://www.cottageliving.com/ Enjoy these beautiful works of art by Richard!

Our First nest has arrived!!!

BIG NEWS! The first sea turtle nest has been laid! The nest was found this morning on the 6AM dawn watch right by the big curve and anchor. Because the nest was so shallow and in danger of being washed over by the waves, it was moved to the area in the dunes by the 9th street crossover slightly south. There were 119 eggs in the nest and they will be hatching in about 60 days. Stop by and look at the nest- there is yellow “do not distrub” tape around the nest to keep people from walking over the nest. We’ll keep you posted on the next sea turtle nest discovery!
