Have you heard of Jekyll Island? If not, your with a lot of others including myself, until a few weeks ago when I decided to join my hubby on a business trip.
His meeting was actually being held in Jacksonville so we decided to make the weekend before a little more entertaining and go somewhere new . . .
unheard of . . .
and so we found ourselves planted magically back in time on the quiet little resort of Jekyll Island.
I won’t go into the history of this beautiful Island, you can all google that for yourselves, but I will gladly share some of the splendid and alluring qualities about this Island.
As we drove up to what is known as the “club resort” you are welcomed by this . . .
(the original clubhouse built in the early 1900’s, I mean take me back to that fun time of history)
Yes, I did spend some time just relaxing in the white chairs.
And of course, my husband and I joined this adorable couple for a game of croquet.
We were told to make certain we had lunch at the Courtyard . . .
I kept pinching myself to know I wasn’t back in England or France . . .
And don’t be fooled by just the atmosphere, the food was AMAZING.
This is basically how I travel, comfy clothes . . .
A no iron, non wrinkle kind of dress, really comfy shoes and I always throw in or on a scarf in case it gets a bit chilly.
(today I had a dress from banana republic, patent leather vans, scarf from jcrew and later a cardigan from banana republic.)
Our cute waiter saw my camera and quickly adviced us to head over to Driftwood Beach, telling me that I would be awestruck at what I would capture.
I will be forever grateful for his advice . . .
Awestruck indeed . . .
Breathtaking beyond words . . .
It was a quite kind of beauty I had never quite experienced before.
And one I hope to return to again.
As always my friends, thanks for dropping by. Have a most wonderful day.
Linking up with Patti for the ever so fun Visible Monday.
