I am not a very spontaneous person. Oh how I wish I could be, but it is just not in my nature. However, this weekend I ventured into being a little more on the spontaneous side!
It all started Thursday. I was sitting at work daydreaming about the weekend. Not knowing our plans, I texted Michael and asked what we were doing that weekend. He replied that we didn't have any plans and asked me what I wanted to do. I quickly responded that I wanted to go to the beach. We weren't sure if we could really make this happen, but on Friday at noon we were in the car headed for the coast!
Our destination was Jekyll Island. Jekyll Island is a quaint, quiet island off the coast of Georgia. It is definitely not glamorous, but it is one of my favorites. I spent a summer on Jekyll as a 4-H camp counselor and have many fond memories of this wonderful island!!!
Michael and I had a fun, low key weekend! We walked on the beach, played in the ocean, and enjoyed a few fruity drinks. We also visited Millionaires Village and The Jekyll Island Club Hotel where we toured a few of the beautiful historic homes. You can read more about Jekyll Island and Millionaires Village here. It has a very unique history. Below is a picture of the Jekyll Island Club Hotel.
We also visited one of my favorite spots on the north end of the island. It is a beach full of dead, gnarled trees. It sounds ugly, but this spot on the beach is absolutely beautiful and amazing. My pictures can't begin to do it justice, but here are a few so you can at least get an idea.
It was a perfect weekend and a much needed break from our adult responsibilities. It was also a lesson in being spontaneous! Maybe I will try it more often!!!
