I had such fun today on beautiful Jekyll Island.
The skies were clear with temps in the 60s. Ideal!
The island is about 10 miles from Brunswick via this causeway bridge.
Jekyll is a barrier island with undeveloped beaches. The island is filled with massive oaks and impressive architecture.
And there is much to do here.
After a long walk on the beach, I headed to The Rah Bar for lunch, relying upon the positive reviews from Trip Advisor.
The reviews were accurate. I had the crab bisque (natch) and a dozen raw oysters (double-natch).
As there was no seating for a solo diner, these really nice folks allowed me to share a table with them.
They are members (and parents) of a Tallahassee soccer team visiting the island for a weekend tournament. They won this morning and needed to refuel for their afternoon match.
|I'm ignoring the team in the background in favor of my dozen raw.|
I had fun visiting with them. A reminder, once again, that you meet the nicest people on the road!
After lunch, I rented a bike and rode for a while along the many bike paths that weave throughout the island. It was just such a nice day to be out! Afterwards, I took my chair to the beach, worked on a crossword, and watched the birds and the surf.
As darkness approached, I made my way back to Brunswick for a Wal-Mart overnighter, alongside several other rigs. I'll have to commit to a genuine campground-stay soon as I’m beginning to feel the need for a very long, very hot shower. I’ll head down the coast tomorrow in search of such.
A seriously great day!
