Jekyll Island Club

This week I had the pleasure of touring the Jekyll Island Club. The Chamber will host their adult leadership class's retreat there in the fall, and since I had never been/am in charge of the class, it seemed like it would be a good idea to go down for the day and see the grounds. Whoa--I am majorly impressed. I'd heard how beautiful it was, but the resort blew me away. It looks like something out of a movie {may or may not have reminded me of Dirty Dancing}with perfectly manicured grounds, accurately restored homes that were originally built by families with names such as Rockefeller, Pulitzer, and Goodyear; and of course wonderful food. I had the "Award Winning" Jekyll Shrimp and Grits for lunch, and I know why they call it award winning--it was different from any shrimp and grits I've tried before, and I like to think of myself as a connoisseur of the dish!

Jekyll Island Club--Faith Chapel
There is a real Tiffany window in here, and precious Bride
and Groom quarters too. 

I can't wait to go back in the fall and explore over a long weekend. This is such a beautiful place--and would be the ideal location for a destination wedding! We ended the most beautiful day by stopping at a little hidden gem known as Driftwood Beach. I've never seen anything like that! Huge trees littered the beach, completely bleached by the salt and sun. I'll definitely have to take more pictures next time!

  1. So beautiful and I do love your dress!

    1. It was a great trip, and I thought the dress suited the day! Now to plan my wardrobe for the next trip.

  2. What a fun day trip for you! I LOVE Jekyll (and of course my SSI). The daughter of a good friend was married on the island a couple of years ago and had her reception at the Crane Cottage. Alot of her family stayed there as well, for the wedding weekend. Its a lovely spot. Next time you're there, try the Rah Bar...out on the "creek." Yum. And for fun, visit the Turtle Center. :)

  3. So jealous! You look beautiful as always!!!
