The weekend was weather perfect as we toured the Millionaires' Village that once was the playground of the Pulitzer's, Morgan's, Crane's, Rockefeller's, all the American elite of the later 1800's and into the turn of the century and beyond. The moss covered trees draped the island as we rolled on the trolley to see history unfold before our very eyes. Most impressive to me were the stained glass windows in the charming chapel by none other the Louis Comfort Tiffany.We also toured the Turtle Rescue Center and observed turtles currently thriving under the care of marine biologists in hope to release back to the shores of Jekyll.
Delicious food flowed all weekend as we started with a sit down dinner at Fin's on Friday night, a bountiful breakfast buffet at the Oceanside Inn on Saturday morning, picnic lunch provided by Alpha Alpha chapter, and a low country boil on Saturday evening along with a history lesson by a local professor Dr. Bagwell of the Coastal College of Georgia.
Members had free time to shop, tour the island on their own, bask in the sun, walk the beach, BUT I chose to rent a "Red Bug" electric cart and zoomed around the island with Judy Farrigan, Gail Ford, and Susan Woods. We laughed all the way and at every turn...what a perfect weekend it was!
