Well, my dining table is stacked with boxes and crates
filled with food, paper goods, and games.
My coffee table is covered with loaves of bread.
Our refrigerator is loaded with meats, fruits,
cheeses, and salads.The bed in the spare room has piles of capris, shirts,
swimsuits, and lingerie.
In the hall, there's a large bag packed with sheets and towels.
Soon, there will be a truck overflowing with coolers, seines,
buckets, chairs, bikes, a canopy, and boogie boards.
Why, you say? Because Saturday we are headed to the beach!
There will be 15 of us under the same roof for a week!!
There's not much shopping on the island, so we have to try
to take everything we will need.
I keep making lists and checking them, not just twice, but
over and over!
We look forward to this family trip every year.
We have many memories from our time on the island...
Hubby grew up close by and our kids grew up going there while
In 1997, we started renting a house on the island...
so this is our 18th year. Wow! That's hard to believe!
We started renting a small 3 bedroom house. When we needed more room,
we started taking our camper, in addition to renting the house,
for 4 of us to sleep in.
In 2012, we decided to look for a larger house so we could all
sleep in the same place. We found an ideal place...
plenty of bedrooms, a large kitchen, a spacious
family room and 3 baths. And it is the most affordable
house of its size on the island.
So, Jekyll Island, look out....
we will be descending on you in a couple of days!
And yes, there will be picture...lots of pictures!!
Hope you have something to look forward to! :-)
