I want this to be the year where I focus more on adventures and less on consuming. Some of the adventures may take place in my backyard and some may take place across the country. Nothing is off limits. The only thing that is required is being open to the spirit of fun and possibilities.

Our first little adventure may be of some interest to locals. We live about an hour away from Jekyll Island. If you are not familiar with it here is a little history.
n 1733, General James Oglethorpe named Jekyll Island in honor of Sir Joseph Jekyll, his friend and financier from England. In the late 1800s, Jekyll Island became an exclusive hunting club for families with names like Rockefeller, Morgan, Vanderbilt, Pulitzer, and Baker. The once private retreat is now part of The Jekyll Island Club National Historic Landmark District, one of the largest preservation projects in the southeast. In 1947, the Governor and the Georgia state legislature established Jekyll Island as a State Park.
