Forget the tired tale of rising taxes and dwindling population erasing regional culture off the map. Sapelo Island, Georgia is mystical, beautiful, and bountiful. Huge oak trees drape over entryways. The landscape is unspoiled and lush, evocative of Eden. This part of Dixie, rich in Gullah-Geechee traditions, is where fresh shrimp, soft shell crabs, and mullet reign supreme. Sour oranges, red peas, wild cows, massive birds, and saw tooth palmettos are foreign to visitors but daily pleasures to the island's residents. Then there's the sugar.
