Going home from Jekyll for us means going
over the Sydney Lanier Bridge and going through
Brunswick... the Hubby's hometown.
There's a local restaurant there with good seafood and
reasonable prices, so we decided to hang around for
a little while and have lunch there.
(Check out time for the house we rent is 10 AM.)
We drove to the waterfront...
and I took a few pics of the shrimp boats.
Many manatees, or sea cows, are injured every year
by the propellers on boats. I was glad to see this sign
encouraging boaters to be mindful of these gentle creatures.
Oleander bushes were blooming profusely and swaying in
the brisk breeze that was blowing.
I had to hold this branch still to take the picture!
We drove down Gloucester Street. It is an old downtown,
but they have restored the buildings...
And with the lamp posts and palm trees,
it's very attractive.
This little outdoor cafe with the pretty
crepe myrtle made a lovely corner.
And live oaks with draping moss are a
common sight on the Georgia coast.
Then we drove down the street where Hubby grew up.
This was his home. It was a simple frame house back then.
In recent years, an exterminating company bought it and
bricked up the facade and enlarged it. Most of the other homes
on the street have fallen into disrepair, so I am glad his house
was bought by someone who has taken care of it.
You don't see many McDonald's like this anymore.
Those Golden Arches are cool!
Finally it was lunch time, so we headed here...
and enjoyed some yummy shrimp and all the trimmings!
Well worth the wait!!
After about 90 mins on the road, we stopped to visit
Hubby's aunt. Leaving her house, I spotted this place.
A good cuo of coffee was just what we needed to perk us up
for the rest of the drive home.
Don't you like the name?
The young couples had dates on Thurs night of our vacation
and Chief and I kept the grands.
We had our date on the way home...
and it was worth the wait, too! :-)
