Trip to Georgia Coastal Isles Part II

Finally! Here are the beach and other photos that I was going to post a couple of weeks ago as a follow up to my first Georgia Coast Isles post that you can read here.  I am afraid Christmas preparations became the priority sooner than I thought they would, and well, here I am just now posting my early December beach photos. I suppose Christmas will follow in a few days. I always seem to be a bit behind schedule these days.  So, let me dive right in…

Cloudy beach day photos.

The south end of Jekyll is protected from commercial development. There is a large Youth Soccer Complex and several parks and picnic areas. Bicycle paths surround and go through a lush wildlife area.The South Dunes Picnic Area leads to a long boardwalk that crosses untouched dunes full of native trees and shrubs and birds and other wildlife. The boardwalk takes you to “Glory” beach where part of the movie, Glory, was filmed.  We found Glory beach to be a beautiful, peaceful and seemingly untouched beach, from which you have a view of nearby Cumberland Island, one of the greatest treasures in the Georgia Coastal Isles. These are some of my photos along the boardwalk and on Glory Beach.

This part of the island is so nicely secluded this time of year. You can see Cumberland Island in the distance, if you look closely.

A better view of Cumberland Island.

Another shot of the south view showing the wonderful dunes that are protected all over the island.

It was a beautiful, blue sky, blue water day.

I promised a photo of my handsome better half.

High tide doesn’t leave much actual beach here.

Well, I hope you enjoyed the Jekyll beach, photo tour. Let me know what you think. If you get the opportunity to visit this Georgia jewel, you will not be disappointed.
