We drove to Darien and toured Fort St George. There was a strong Scottish influence in this area.
Any trip to Darien isn’t complete without dinner at Skipper’s.

Monday-Bev and I did the Jekyll Island tour. It was pretty hot, so we spent a little time on Driftwood Beach and drove around the rest of the island. We toured the Jekyll Island Club, then had a late lunch at Tortuga Jacks. Always a nice view of the ocean with a breeze off the water.

Tuesday- we toured St Simon’s Island. We started at the pier with a view of
the Golden Ray cargo ship in the channel and some shopping. Then we
drove out to Fort Frederica and found the tree spirits. We made it back
to Brunswick to have dinner with Pete.
