St Simon Island
We had a nice visit to Aunt Dar's, where we delivered Chinese food otherwise unavailable out in the forest. I cooked and froze up many dinners to appease her appetite and my guilt, Peter powerwashed the house and cleaned the gutters, and we determined that Dar needed a new drainfeld. An expensive visit. We found Dar to be in good shape and spirits, perhaps due in part to the Yankee World Series victory.
Upon our return to Brunswick, we took the opportunity to tour around. We spent an afternoon at nearby St. Simon's Island. This is a typical tourist town, lots of little restaurants and shopping opportunities, where we completed Willow's Chanuka/Christmas package.
We ventured to the exclusive Jekyll Island, but as it was late in the day, we found the $5 fee to get into the community a bit steep, and frankly, offensive.
