Jekyll Island, Georgia








Jekyll Island is located off the coast of the U.S. state of Georgia, in Glynn County. It is one of the Sea Islands and one of the Golden Isles of Georgia barrier islands. The island is owned by the State of Georgia and run by a self-sustaining, self-governing body.

Let me tell u something about Jekyll Island, Georgia ... There is a $6.00 Daily Pass Charge ...not sure if that will change when you travel there, but when were there 11/06/2018, it was that price? WATCH YOUR SPEED. The cops are out and they are money hungry. Okay ...have a nice day ... That's all. Take Care. Kidding. But seriously ...watch your speed and you should be great. I was not comfortable on this island ...I would not fit in well with the rich folks ...it was not something I felt or did enjoy. Now I am not broke ...but I am so far from rich it is not funny. & Maybe some rich folks are super nice ...I don't know ...but I just felt that so many people were giving you those over your glasses nose down at ya kind of looks ...and it was off season. Just saying! The birds didn't like me either ...we got dive-bombed by several birds too ...trying to eat our lunch at one of the only places open for lunch (OFF SEASON REMEMBER?!) ...and we made our quick getaway to inside ...trying to have a nice lunch outdoors ...u think u would b okay ... i am not kidding this bird ... I have no clue ... kind of the size of a crow (small crow but in brown coloring) he thinks he can almost land on my finger and steal my fries. I had an injured fingers, his claws HURT!! ouch! No thank you!! evil critter!! I really really don't like that ...makes u realize that someone has been feeding those birds and people like me have to deal that kind of intimidation!! NOT COOL!! I never understand why folks wanna feed critters any way ...not my style. I don't like beggars either, that bird was giving me the evil eye ... he could have poke my eyes out!!

Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :

Ha ha...this would be a terrible commercial for the island! Beautiful scenery, but I am imagining the birds movie and snooty people...ugh! Somehow you made it both intriguing and horrifying.

Hello,

Sounds like the birds are being fed, sorry you were hurt. Pretty photos! I have been wanting to see the Jekyll Island mainly to see their lighthouse? I am not rich either but I can easily ignore the stuck up people. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day. Have a great week ahead!

Not sure how I would feel in this place, but I think I could enjoy it...always feel that people are just people. At least most of the time.

Funny. I started scrolling through the photos and was thinking this doesn't look like your typical place. Ha!
As for me, It is a place I would like to see. On my someday list. I will be sure to watch out for diving birds.

I felt like that on Hilton Head Island. You pay to get on and then most of the island is gated off! There are some tiny public beaches with expensive parking.

Biltmore, Asheville, North Carolina

This was my 2nd trip to the "Biltmore" Estates. Last visit was in November (not sure of the year?, but I was not blogging at the time.) Photos are only allowed outside the home. NEVER INSIDE. Which I was hoping they would allow photos of the Downton Abbey clothing but nope. no go. Not sure how other folks who have shown pics on their blog of the outfits have gotten past those rules???! 
The positive is my Mom & I have lots of great fun memories. We went as an early birthday present for me thanks to my hubby & my parents. So sweet! Mom & I had a fun girls times together. I knew the Downton Abbey clothing would be there until May 25th, 2 days after my birthday... so I wanted to go before they left & my Mom is a super Downton Abbey fan ...it was a must see for the both of us. So so fun!!! 
What I love about this home, you drive into that gatehouse at the top & then suddenly you lose all the traffic, the city sounds & noise ...you drive through the farm …

Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, Hayward, Wisconsin

"Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame", Hayward, Wisconsin. i am not a fisherwoman, but i have always been amazed by folks who do fish. all the hard work you do to make those stats. i must say i would prefer to see all these fish in the sea. not on the wall like this ...but what can you do? have you ever seen any of these fish alive before? this salmon above is so cool!!

did i mention that the hubby had a speed boat when we 1st started dating. it was awesome. but i always thought it needed to go FASTER. i love a fast boat. then the goober sold the thing. i miss it big time. he got rid of it because we didn't use it enough. kind of hard when you don't live near any BIG bodys of water. guess we need to move. he loved all the boat motors at this place. i now own a huge SD card of boat motors, what??! yep, i do. any one else in the world who can say that, can YOU say the same thing???!!!??!!!!

do you love to fish? Beth ( :

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece.
