Jekyll Island

We were lucky to have pretty fabulous weather while in Savannah--it was hot, but also sunny--perfect weather for the beach.  I was surprised at how close Savannah was to so many popular beach spots.  We visited 3 different beaches on our trip but Jekyll Island was my favorite.  

Ollie was ready for the beach in his cute fedora. 

 Jekyll Island
We visited Driftwood Beach first.  It's basically a beach full of dead trees and rocks.  Although not somewhere to actually swim, it made for a cool spot to explore and take pictures. 

Jekyll also has a cool historic portion of the island, although Davis and I didn't get to see much of that. Davis was pretty fussy that morning and needed a nap, so i circled the island about 4 times so he could nap and the Cowan's walked around the town of Jekyll, checking out the hotel club and shops.  

That afternoon Davis was much happier and we had a great time at the water. I loved the huge beach and all the tide pools.  It was the perfect beach for a little guy--lots of space and shallow water to crawl in. 

On the way home we had 2 sleeping babies and 1 sleeping husband--so Sarah and I took a little detour to drive over the St. Simon bridge--i think next visit we'll have to visit that island.
