|This is what you see during most of your ride on|
Jekyll Island! Gorgeous!
|Tabby is the material that was used to build many of|
the early homes on Jekyll. It was equal parts of oyster shells,
lime, sand, and water. In St. Augustine they used coquina shells
that were in the area.
|Only the outside walls of the Horton House remain!|
This was a 500 acre plantation in its day complete
|You get glimpses of the ocean from the trail!|
A typical "winter cottage"
|This is the old Jekyll Island Hotel (Club) that was the|
entertainment center and the place for guest of
the cottage owners to stay when visiting. It is a very
exclusive place to stay today!
After returning and having lunch we drove to the beach to enjoy a day of relaxing, reading, and sitting by the water. It is almost like having your own private beach!
Back to Willie around 5. Both of us were rather tired today after 2 long days of driving! Looking forward to many more bike rides, walks, and time on the beach! This place is just a special as we remembered from our trip here 4 years ago. It really is a gem!!!!!
