Learning In The Present – Jekyll Island, GeorgiaPosted on Jan 28, 2013 | 4 comments
It's been 3 years since we were last in Georgia on Jekyll Island. And 3 years ago things were very, very different. 3 years ago we had a routine, and now we have no idea what a routine looks like.
As we settle into our second week of long-term travel, we're quickly realizing how adventurous our lives are becoming. For the first time, we have no idea what is going to happen next. Instead of planning things out months and years in advance like we did before, we find ourselves living completely in the moment. Things change on a whim as we discover the things we want and need to do.
Oh, Right. They have cheap laundry here, so let's get that done today.
Oh, YES! The museum has a free day today - let's go!
Oh, Shoot. It's raining here the next 3 days. Let's just go to sunny Florida instead.
Oh, Man. We miss our friends and family. Let's sit around today and draw pictures and make postcards.
Life is certainly not like it was before. There is less routine, more discovery, and so much unknown. We're learning day by day.
We spent most of our days on Jekyll exploring the endless driftwood playgrounds that line the island's shores. Even in the off-season, the island offers some great outdoor opportunities. In just two days we saw 20 deer, racoons, vultures, alligators, and some Great Blue Heron. There are bike rentals, discovery centers, water slides, and a fabulously friendly campground for only $22 a night and that includes Wi-Fi.
We enjoyed learning on Jekyll Island.
