The beach was a blast.
But the great thing about Jekyll Island is — everything there is amazing.
One of my most favorite things about the island is that you can ride your bike anywhere.
It’s not that big, and you can get to all the important spots in no time.
One of the first days on our bike, Tom and I saw a huge bird carrying a huge stick.
And then we saw it fly to the top of a phone tower where it was building the biggest nest ever!
I cannot believe I didn’t get a picture of it.
But the point is — it’s awesome to be able to ride your bike to get ice cream and then see a huge nest building bird on your way home.
It’s the best.
And that’s how Jekyll is for me — just great things everywhere!
So here’s a rundown of everything else we did — that wasn’t the beach!
We visited the Georgia Sea Turtle Museum which was amazingly great. The kids even got to watch a turtle getting a little treatment, which they thought was so cool. Such a blast! (And the kids still remember that turtle on the left — her name was Glory.)
We went to the water park, Summer Waves. Tom LOVED it! It was awesome, and perfectly suited for us! Tom rode this ride with us so much, the lifeguard knew his name! We lucked out and got cheap tickets through one of those deal websites before we arrived, and that’s what really pushed us to even go. I’m so glad we did!!! Both kids had a great time. (And so did the parents, Grandma, aunt, uncle and cousins!)
One night our parents took just Rachel and I out for a fancy dinner, while the boys hung out with all the kids. It was amazing!! (And Kevin and Adam had a huge crab leg lunch in return and sent me gross pictures of it. I hate already-eaten-food pictures!!! Gross!)
Now, don’t you want to come with us next time? And don’t you want next time to be now?
