Some came in on Fri­day, but the major­i­ty of the fly-in atten­dees arrived on Sat­ur­day May 17th.The weath­er was per­fect clear skies, light winds, and warm dry temps, wel­come to the grand strand islands. Every­one was on their own to explore the island and enjoy the ambiance of Jekyll Island, there was lot to see and do, or you could just relax. One of the nice ameni­ties avail­able on the island is rental of the unique red bug elec­tric cars, which many did. So explor­ing before and after lunch was in order. The nat­ur­al beau­ty with live oak for­est, marsh land, a gor­geous golf course, great beaches,andwaterways, his­toric ruins, and the his­toric Jekyll Island Club prop­er­ty with sur­round­ing build­ings gave every­one plen­ty to see.

There were many choic­es for lunch. We chose the wharf right in front of the hotel, where there was music and indoor as well as out­door din­ing on local seafood favorites.

We had time to social­ize in the grandeur of the great his­toric hotel.  Saturday CocktailsSaturday before dinnerSaturday chattingSaturday drinksSaturday receptionSaturday Group
