Wandering around Jekyll Island

During the short time I was on Jekyll Island, I ended up taking over four hundred pictures. Have I mentioned that I love photography? I don't have any formal training, but I still find satisfaction in framing a good shot and capturing that tiny bit of life. 

I've already treated you to several posts focusing on the inside of my home-away-from-home Jekyll Island Club Hotel, but there's more to the island than the awesomeness that is the JICH.

Turtle Time: The Georgia Sea Turtle Center

Who doesn't love sea turtles? After all, they all are super chill, have Australian accents, and are experts on the major exit points of the EAC.

Oh, wait. You're telling me that I shouldn't be getting my marine biology lessons from Pixar movies?!

While my sister, Britton and I were visiting the gorgeous Jekyll Island Club Hotel, we headed over to the Georgia Sea Turtle Center to find a more reputable learning center than Finding Nemo.

A Short History of the Jekyll Island Club Hotel

Jekyll Island Club Hotel history
I'm one of those people who love learning about the history of a place. I've been known to research the previous owners of the houses that we're thinking of buying just because I want to know more about those homes' stories. I love genealogy and learning more about all of my great-great-great-people.

It's no wonder, then, that I dove into the history of the Jekyll Island Club Hotel. And there was plenty of it for me to swim around in luxuriously.

In the last two days, I've learned, explored, and photographed more than I ever imagined I could in less than 48 hours. One might not think that there would be so much to cram into a short vacation on an island that's only 7 miles long and 1.5 miles wide--but there definitely is.

Road Trip! Jekyll Island Bound

Fall really is the perfect time to travel in the South. The weather is (slightly) cooler than it has been, and the crowds are so much lighter.

I'm taking full advantage of this gorgeous time of year and heading out on a road trip with my sister and daughter in tow. 

Our destination? Somewhere that I've wanted to visit for a long, long time:
