As I mentioned, I was away in Georgia recently for a week. My mom, sister, sister-in-law, niece, and I rented a house in Sea Island and had a really lovely trip. My grandmother and aunt were supposed to join us and unfortunately couldn't at the last minute, but everything else went off without a hitch. I'm stealing liberally from the pictures my family took, because they took more, better pictures than I did!
Here is the house we stayed at, which was ridiculously enormous and lovely. Every square inch of wall through the sleeping areas of the house was a closet. I've never seen anything like it! Tons of bedrooms and bathrooms, too.
But, if you asked my niece, I'm guessing she would say the best part was the private pool and beach access.

We didn't spend the whole time hanging around the house, though. We explored Sea Island and nearby St. Simon's Island and Jekyll Island, all of which were basically covered in gorgeous oaks and palm trees.
There were tons of cute little stores to visit too. My favorite place to visit was probably the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, where we met Kathy (who I got this terrible picture of while she was enjoying her fish popsicle lunch) and some other rehabbing turtles.
We also enjoyed a day in beautiful Savannah, doing a tour of the historic district and eating at Paula Deen's The Lady and Sons (I was full and had a salad, but rest assured that it was the biggest salad I've ever seen served to one person).
We spent the last few days enjoying just a small portion of the activities offered at Sea Island, enjoying s'mores at sunset, taking a nighttime walk (with turtle-safe lighting!) to look for nesting sea turtle mamas, playing bingo, and taking a great baking class from the Sea Island pastry chefs. It was a really lovely trip, and I'm so happy everyone was able to join me!
