Our Jekyll Trip (before the Africa Adventure)

We took a week long trip to Jekyll Island the week before we left for Zambia. The weather was gorgeous and the kids played in the surf everyday. Grandma Pat came down for a visit and we loved spending a few days with her enjoying the beach. We rented an oceanfront house and spent time at the Jekyll Island Club. One of our favorite activities at Jekyll is renting bikes and riding around the island - it takes about 4 hours to ride around the entire island. We loved the beach but were so anxious to get back to Durango and get on the plane to London!! We took a "turtle walk" but unfortunately didn't see any of the loggerhead turtles that lay their eggs on the island. We ate lots of seafood and Beth got to sample a few different hushpuppies (a favorite and a must-have when we travel to the south!!).
