I didn't even know Georgia had a beach until awhile back.

It must not be very well known & small.

Those are nice photos. I think palm trees are some of the most beautiful trees but they don't provide much or any shade. How did the palms do this past winter in Georgia? I heard it was very cold at times.

I dunno about Georgia, but a lot of the Sago Palms here in Texas froze to death. I'd always thought & read they were more cold hardy than that...guess not.

This was a crazy winter however, not typical for Texas AT ALL. It maybe gets as cold as it did here once every 20-30 years.

Whats amazing though is my 20 ft. tall California Fan Palm survived & it was never once wrapped!

Yes, it was a strange brutal winter in the South.

Actually got snow two times in South Georgia one time it accumulated a couple inches. However, the temps didn't get much lower than the tweenties maybe 15,16 degrees at lowest. That's not cold enough to kill the variety of Palms there.

I remember as a kid we had a whole row of palms that produced these date like fruit (they were pretty good) across the street from my house. One winter ( I think it might have been 1985) It got really cold like 11 degrees with 0 windchill and killed all the trees.

Georgia over a hundred miles of coast line. Tybee Island, Jekyll Island, and St Simon are just some of it's beaches. But my pictures were taken in Southwest Georgia which is a good 100 plus miles from the Georgia Coast and about equal distance from the Florida Panhandle.

I notice that I see twice if not three times as many date palms in Louisiana than I see in Texas or Florida. Is there anywhere else in the country where they are the dominant palm?
