After yesterday's lesson we left at high tide and what a difference it made. Although we still had to be very alert not to drift off that lovely magenta line the cruise into Jekyll was calm and peaceful. The number of islands and the miles of meandering waterway is boggling. There are no roads connecting most of them so seeing this part of our country from the water or air are the only options and of course from the water it is more like a total enveloping experience. To be pushing along with the ducks and dolphins is amazing and this time of year rarely did we see another boat.
Jekyll Island Club is so interesting. Turn of the century retreat for the industrial millionaires - well preserved and documented - the "cottages" they built for a winter season are lovely. A huge development far from civilization provided them a retreat amidst like moneyed families. We got our bikes out and rode around before meeting our friends Lee and Rachel for dinner at the Club.
