Jekyll Island Sunset

For Day 2 of our weekend getaway to the Georgia Coast, Amy and I decided to spend the day exploring Jekyll Island.

We started out with a nice long walk along Driftwood Beach

After Driftwood Beach, we explored the West side of the Island, including the Horton House Ruins and the Historic District.

Jekyll Island has more miles of pedestrian/bicycle paths than it does roads.  So after a nice lunch, we decided to take advantage of the bike paths and rent bikes.  Do we get two separate bikes or a Tandem Bicycle?   We ended up choosing a Tricycle Built for Two!

That was a lot of fun, but definitely not the most efficient mode of transportation!  The roof provided some welcome shade, but on a windy day like we had it really caught the breeze and made it quite the struggle when peddling  into the wind!

After returning our Trike and a bit of shopping at Beach Village, we headed over to St. Andrews Beach.  Amy took some time to relax with her book, while I went for another long Beach Walk.

We finished up our time on Jekyll Island with a Spectacular Sunset!

Later that evening, back at our rental house outside of Brunswick, GA I took a few night photos around the property.

It was a very enjoyable day and weekend getaway!
