We just returned from a nice weekend getaway with friends to Georgia's Golden Isles, which include Jekyll Island (above) and St. Simons Island. Over the next few entries, I'll be sharing some photos and stories from our trip. Here's the first: The beach on Jekyll Island was empty Saturday morning. We removed our shoes and took a long barefoot walk. Along the way, we saw all kinds of shells and stuff on the shore, like sand dollars (intact!) and horseshoe crabs (some intact, some not!) At one point, we spotted a dolphin swimming parallel to us along the shoreline! Awesome.
