Trip Wrap Up

In North Carolina we visited a niece and her family.  It had been about 8 years since we had seen them. We so enjoyed our time together!!

 We fell in love with a great niece and nephew we had never met!!

Brian had always wanted to visit Munro Louisiana and we were able to do that!
We also met up with another Blogging Friend in Texas..
We had such a wonderful time...they were so much fun!!
We never made it to Tennessee - Arksansas or Oklahoma...
the weather just got to cool so we will save that for another trip.
We were so blessed to have such good weather and saw such beauty throughout the states we visited!

Jeykll Island

Off the coast of Georgia....

We found a wonderful treat.... a quiet Oasis to spend a couple days!
Lots of history on this Island...this is the Horton House...
This is the Island Club House... in the Historic area where there are 33 Historic Buildings ...the Wealthy built cottages on this island for their summer retreat. These buildings have been restored...
There are little shops in this area to browse.
There is a nice area to have a lunch or coffee in this garden area..
Pictures of a few of the 'cottages'...
Goodyear Cottage
Rockefellers Cottage
The island is full or HUGE Oak Trees...covered with Spanish Moss...
And did I mention bike trails.... there isn't place on the island you can't bike on!

Beaches... I believe there is 8 miles of sandy beaches..

If you need Island time...this is the place to go...if you like a natural area..with little commercialism...
