Sunday we drove south to visit Georgia’s cost and the Golden Isles. We went to Jekyll Island, known best for its Driftwood Beach on its northern cost.
The island has been eroding there very slowly, losing the nourishing ground for the maritime forest, so it looks like a huge tree cemetery. A great place to wander around and take some pictures.
On the southern side of the island there is a historic district. Some millionaires had bought the island in the 19th century, creating an exclusive resort-like community for the upper-upper-class, cut off from the outside world. Today, the area is open to the public to admire the magnificent buildings. So you no longer get shot for trespassing if you’re not a member of this exclusive society. However, walking around this neat, tidy, picture-perfect area still felt a bit strange for us. Like the past has permanently spoilt the place’s karma. Or maybe it’s just the island’s name…
Just see for yourself on the pictures:
