During our month long stay on Jekyll Island, we also visited the beautiful historic district. The Jekyll Island Museum reviewed the island history, while the Rockefeller cottage and Faith Chapel showcased the lifestyle of the island’s wealthy early residents. We dined on steak and seafood in the Grand Dining Room of the Jekyll Island Club hotel and Margot went to a ladies lunch at the luxurious Crane Cottage. We attended the popular annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony complete with live music, Santa and Mrs. Claus, fake snow, and fireworks with thousands of other island residents.
We booked in for a month at Jekyll Island Campground in the lovely Golden Isles area of southeast coastal Georgia. The campground came well-recommended by one of the full-time RVers Margot has been following for years so we knew it was a good spot with lots to see and do in the area. One would think with a month’s worth of time, relaxation would be the main activity. Not exactly! Almost everyday we were out and about exploring and learning about the area. When we did stick around the campground, we were TCOB’ing (Taking Care of Business) like laundry, taking care of the odd rental property business, preparing music for Jam night, etc.
Our site was lovely and spacious, especially considering it came with full hookups: electricity, water and sewer.
With the extra work we had to do that took us into November James was worried he would have to ride down in freezing temperatures or worse, with a threat of snow. We kept our eye on the forecasts and with the wild swings in weather this fall, we lucked out with a spot of warm dry weather on November 10th with a high of 15 C for James to ride south on the motorcycle. The upgrades and heated gear performed great!
