Those trees of Jekyll Island

Road tripping usa just before covid

In Jan 2020 we were very very lucky to be travelling USA.  In our road trip, we travelled thousands of miles from Texas and in a big loop eventually down to Key West.  One of our very many treasured stops was Jekyll Island in Georgia.

Arriving just after Christmas, we were very fortunate to see christmas decorations adorning the historic homes at this location.

If I could run back anywhere for a holiday with global travel back on the agenda, this place would be in the top 3.

The houses are set amongst glorious southern moss.  We had just 4 days here.  I highly recommend that if you get here, spend a week, minimum
