map showing where Jekyll Island is located
Jekyll Island, Georgia
May 20 -25, 2010
The island measures about 7 miles long by 1.5 miles wide, has 8 miles of wide flat beaches and lots of tidal marshlands.
Jekyll Island is an island off the coast of the U.S. state of Georgia, in Glynn County, midway between Savannah, Georgia and Jacksonville, Florida. It is one of the Sea Islands and one of the Golden Isles of Georgia. The city of Brunswick, Georgia, the Marshes of Glynn, and several other islands, including the larger St. Simons Island, are nearby. Its beaches are frequented by vacationers and guided tours of the Landmark Historic District are available. Bike trails, walks along the beaches and sandbars, and Summer Waves, plus a water park, are a few of the many things vacationers can do. The District consists of a number of buildings from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The island is also full of wildlife, consisting of many different mammals and reptiles living in the island's inland marshes.
There is a fun, surprise set of photos at the bottom of this page
The entry road to Jekyll Island.
The first sign seen said that there is no gas on the island.
On this date, it cost the two RV Gypsies $5 daily to enter Jekyll Island.
Residents have to buy an annual pass.

The two RV Gypsies took a walk along the beach just past the fishing pier and past the bend you see in the above photo. Karen Duquette's hat kept blowing away in the wind, so when Lee caught her hat, he put on Karen's hat just to be funny.

It was very windy (but hot) on the beach - the white streaks seen in the photo below are actually sand drifts blowing in the faces of the two RV Gypsies. The ocean made a water path in the sand.

Lee Duquette found a dead horseshoe crab in the sand - What kind of faces or images do you imagine you see in the underside (legs) of the horseshoe crab?

The two RV Gypsies explored a small path from the road. There are 20 miles of hiking trails on Jekyll Island - this is just a one minute path to the waterway, not one of the hiking trails. Spanish moss covers live oak trees throughout the island.

The two RV Gypsies got a glimpse of the lighthouse on St. Simons Island - scroll down for a link to those photos.
