Barrier Islands

We awoke on Jekyll Island to clouds giving way to beautiful sunshine so we set out to explore the island a little bit. Jekyll Island is home to a 1920's era, swanky, resort club built by H.B. Hunt where folks like Rockefeller and J.P. Morgan hung out.  Sitting on the edge of our ultimate destination of the Sea Turtle Rescue Center, we parked on the gorgeous grounds and popped the top to let Sylvia dry in the wind and sun (quite the contrast to her fancy surroundings) while we ate our almond butter sandwiches and drank tea. Jason took this opportunity to work on the RV electrical system to figure out why it had pooped out the day before (with success, I might add),  so the boys and I played hacky sack while watching serious croquet players dressed all in white play in what looked to be a very serious game indeed. Continuing to work our way down the barrier islands, we checked out Amelia Island before rolling into Little Talbot Island State Park just after sunset. As Aaron told you we were lucky enough to be awoken the next morning by a great horned owl kicking off a great couple of days spent playing on the beach and launching off bone yard trees.
