Time with friends - priceless

I had a really lovely weekend spent with some of the members of my book club at the St. Simon's Island vacation home of one of the members. Yes we talked and ate a lot (and drank our share of wine) but we also built deeper friendships while walking on the beach, taking a ghost tour, shopping, attending the Shrimp and Grits Festival and generally enjoying a lovely island weekend.

We had read "Lighthouse" by Eugenia Price to tie in with the weekend to of course we had to pose in front of the (rebuilt) lighthouse shortly after arriving.
Then we walked on the beach.
The next morning we headed over to the Jekyll Island Shrimp and Grits Festival.

 We didn't stop in this shop but later some of us wandered around St. Simon's little village in a successful search for ice cream.

  And our drive home, complete with traffic jam, was cheered by this sight!


  1. Nice ... Jekyll Island and St. Simon's are on my bucket list. Hopefully will get there soon!

    1. This is a great time of year to go - weather is ok, crowds are down. I'd only been to Jekyll before this and was glad to see part of St. Simons.

  2. Sounds fun and it looks like the weather obliged. Did you get to actually discuss the book, LOL!

    1. No, although we tried a couple of times to get that conversation going LOL.
