We took a little sight-seeing trip to Jekyll Island, just past Brunswick, Georgia, on the Atlantic Ocean. It’s a windswept piece of land, part of a series of islands called the Sea Islands or the Golden Isles, and helps form a line of barrier islands between the rage of the Atlantic and the mainland.

We didn’t see much wildlife, which is sad, but December really is not the time to come to a place like this and expect to see a lot of animals.

So I was content with what we didn’t see and with the company I was keeping.

It was a beautiful day.
