Beach Trip


Hello everyone!  I’m sure you can guess from the title of this post where we have been.  We went with Dave and Jess to Jekyll Island GA for a week.  We had so much fun.  The girls had never been to the beach before and I have only been a few times.  Some friends from our church recommended Jekyll Island and we loved it.  It is not too crowded and has lots of fun things to do.


We took a trolley tour of some of the old houses.  It was very interested.  So many of the “rich and famous” lived in these homes.


We also rode a bicycle around the island.

This took most of one day but it was so much fun.  We saw so many things we normally would not have seen.


We did a dolphin tour one day.  Little Sam saw his first dolphin on his third bithday.  Then the motion of the boat did him in.  He had to take a short nap.   We also celebrated my Julie’s 15th birthday while we were there.  Amazing to me how fast they grow up.



On the island they call this driftwood beach.  It is very pretty.


Saturday morning as we were leaving we made a last trip down to driftwood beach and guess what we saw-a dolphin!  Amazing!  It was just swimming around looking beautiful.

While we were there a tropical storm can through.  It was AWESOME!  We went down to the beach that evening before it came in and the waves were so pretty.  The wind was whipping and the sound was like a roar.  I LOVED it!!!! On Thursday, it rained something fierce so we went down to Jacksonville FL to the Museum of Science and History.  It was a fun trip with lots of things to look at.

I guess I could go on and on about all the fun things we did but I don’t want to bore you all too much.  It was a great week and we are very thankful to Dave and Jess for taking us along with them.  I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

  1. Oh, you are not boring me! I do want to see the rest of your pictures when we come over. Looks like so much fun, and the beach is beautiful! We are going to the Biltmore tomorrow, and you are having company on Wednesday so if we don’t get together on Thurs. or Fri., we will definitely see you all on Saturday. If we can follow you down, I’m sure we can find our way back home. 🙂

  4. That looks like a great trip! I imagine the storm was neat. My parents and sister were at the beach during a tropical storm last year. They thought it was a neat experience also. Thanks for sharing your fun!


  5. My Family (Sister and Parents) live in Savannah. So, we get down to the coastal waters often — all over the islands in the area! When I saw you had gone to Jek-Island I was hoping that you would show pictures of taking a bike around the board-walk! Aren’t the Oak Trees just beautiful? I am glad you had a great time!
