It is our first thanksgiving as fulltimers and we are spending it with our daughter at the beaches of Jekyll Island.
The bitter part is missing our other kids and our grandsons. It is also my first holiday after my mom passed and my thoughts and memories are with her and dad.
Jekyll is a nice small island. It has good ocean beaches and is not to overly commercial or touristy.
You need to pay attention to the tide schedule, or else you may get trapped down the beach and find yourself getting wet to return. Pats mom tripped on a branch and ended up soaked. Luckily she didn't get hurt and was a good sport of it.

The island also has wild horses roaming about. We saw four right away as we headed down a trail. Later we saw more at the ruin sites.
Turkey day Wendy and I got up and got a nice bike ride in. As always it turned out a little longer than we thought- dang- lost again. Oh well it is a small island and if you keep going one direction you will get back.
