March 20, 2015 Travel to Brunswick and Jekyll Island

This morning, we woke to fog and took our time getting ready to go.  We only had 80 miles to our destination plus we wanted to wait until rush hour around Jacksonville was over.

Really foggy and still lots of traffic:

We arrived in Brunswick at the Golden Isle RV Park, a Passport America Park.  We set up and since it was early, we went on a road trip.

Heading south towards the islands – cool looking bridge:

We headed over to Jekyll Island first.  There is a cost to get on the island and when it was our turn to pay a gentlemen came over to the kiosk and it was paid – how great is that.

I had been on Jekyll Island about 25 years ago and really enjoyed it. It looks like we better get back there again sometime!
