Jekyll Island sits on the sea's hem alongside the southern corner of the Georgia coastline.
We discovered this island gem several
years ago, and love visiting in the fall
or winter because it's off season,
the room rates go down, and you practically
have the whole island to yourself.
It was chilly, but we loved our stay,
and truly enjoyed touring around,
and walking the beaches. We brought home
several wonderful sand dollars for
our granddaughter, too!
Enjoy your visit to this enchanting place!
Beach erosion continues to cause craggy
oaks to fall along the shore at the northern
tip of the island. Over time, they have become transformed by the sun, salty sea, sand and breezes, and create the stunning, almost eerie beauty known as Driftwood Beach.
Jekyll Island was once the playground to wealthy northeast bankers, and this cottage is one of many that were originally owned by families such as J.P Morgan, the Rockefellers, and the Goodyears.
The idea for the Federal Reserve System of banking regulation was conceived on the island under a cloak of secrecy, by these bankers at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel.
There were lots of deer roaming the south end
of the island just after sunset, but many of my photos were too dark!
For us, time stands still for just
a little while when we're on the island,
and that is always a good thing!!
Have a fabulous weekend!!
I'm going junkin!
