VISIT TO JEKYLL ISLAND


We had visitors this week and went to Sapelo Island one day and Jekyll Island another day. Friends and relatives always seem to enjoy both places.

On Jekyll we went to the Turtle Center where several cold stunned turtles had been brought in. Not from Maine or New York or even North Carolina waters, though. From Florida, the sunshine state!

And as always we enjoyed seeing some of the old houses that were summer homes of the Vanderbilts and other notables around the turn of the century. That's 1900, not 2000.

Here's the Crane Cottage...some cottage!


And the Cherokee Cottage...ah, that's more like it!


And the Jekyll Island Hotel...oh, look! Croquet players!



Those folks knew how to have fun!

    1. Guess if you were the Vanderbilts or Rockefellers, they were cottages!

    1. Especially the ones they have renovated. Some of the others are down-at-heel but they work on them as they have funds.
