quick trip to Jekyll


Good morning, so sorry for my absence here, it felt long to me!  I haven’t posted in over a week!  Because………

……..last week at this time I was flying to Georgia with my husband for a very quick visit to Jekyll Island.  What can I say about it?  It was a whirlwind, I was tired beyond words because we had to get up at 3:30 in the morning to make our flight, and it was freezing cold.  However, on the positive side, I didn’t have to worry about my children with good ol’ Michael in charge here at home, I was able to relax and look at some beautiful magazines on the plane and start a good book, I ate good food, and I was able to see some lovely sights and visit my brother!!


We stayed at the Jekyll Island Club resort where it is beautiful all over and there are huge old trees draped in spanish moss.


The little coffee shop at the resort.  (love the floors!)


This is what I wore on the plane and I’m smiling because I have my coffee in hand and there are pink flowering shrubs behind me.


The trees, the trees, the glorious trees.  It was a treat to feast my eyes on the green and the flowers.


Rich had to work in the hotel room so I was off on my own for several hours and managed to get cold and wet in the rain, although quite happily.




A little place we found.

It was raining hard, with lots of wind……


The next morning it had cleared some, but it was still chilly so I wore the black leggings again plus a long skirt, a black shirt, and a sweater.


We had an appointment that morning and then went shopping.


The shops were next to the ocean so I ran down to put my feet in.


The clouds and the sea.


And then, guess what?  By God’s providence we were down on Jekyll Island the very day David and his girlfriend arrived for vacation!!!  I was able to meet dear Ann and it was an instant friendship.  The four of us met for a nice seafood lunch.

My very first best friend, and we are still the best of friends these 40 years later.

I love you Dave!!!!


One last walk on the beach (Tuesday evening) by my lonesome, Rich was out running.


I sat by the window and Rich sat on the aisle, with an empty seat between us.  I thought my thoughts and read my book and even dozed now and then.  It’s always a little bit of a relief when the plane lands for the final time (we had a connecting flight) and you realize you survived yet another trip (I’m a slightly anxious traveler)…….I was happy to get home (Wednesday afternoon) and see the children again although the house was pretty messy.  It didn’t take too long to get it back into order (the kids did most of it).

Happy Monday!
