Epworth By The Sea is an absolutely GORGEOUS property, a Methodist retreat center on the banks of the Frederica River here on ‘my’ island. The gorgeous Lovely Lane Chapel is on the grounds as well as the Methodist museum, the many retreat buildings, the prayer chapel and the remarkable slave cabins. There are two remaining slave cabins on the property of what used to be the Hamilton Plantation on Gascoigne Bluff near Fort Frederica. They’re made of tabby and only open a few times a year.
On a recent bike ride as the island prepares to spring into bloom I enjoyed Epworth.
I’d never been in the Museum but on this particular day took the time to wander through. It was wonderful and very well collated. I did come upon something of interest as a knitter! In the back room where the collection of nativity scenes from around the world were located was a nativity completely made of KNITTED figures! Some visitors to the museum were giggling, shame on them. Knit on I say!
