A Surprise Stop on Jekyll Island

October 07, 2008

Today we returned home from Atlanta, Georgia but not before stopping for a surprise visit to Jekyll Island. Jekyll Island, Georgia is one of my most favorite places. It's got natural beauty and charm as well as historical landmarks.

Upon leaving the races on Sunday, we once again took the scenic backroads and byways of Georgia passing through the quaint small towns along the way. As usual, we stopped in a few of those to do some Geocaching too!

Arriving on the island Monday morning, we first drove the motorhome to a couple of spots around the southern end. I had already programmed all the Geocaches into my GPS, so driving to the southern caches would save us distance in riding our bikes! After finding a few, we drove up to the Jekyll Island RV Park at the north end.

We had some lunch and then set off on our bikes for the rest of the day. Our first stop was the fishing pier across from the campgrounds. From there we rode down driftwood beach for a while before making our way back up to the road. Now over to older historical section of the island just as the sun was beginning to set.

Darkness had come upon us before we made it back to our campsite. We had also run into another couple with their kids also riding their bikes back to the RV park. ALL of us were a bit tired at this point!

Well that's it for now. Next week I return to work. Hopefully it won't be too long before we can get out on another RV adventure. If you would like to be updated, be sure to register in the forums and I'll send out a notice to you after my updates.

Thanks again for visiting and see you soon.

In the same woods was this old cannon holder used long ago to protect the island:
