Oh wait, this isn’t what they meant by search engine optimization at Blogpaws? Oops…Guess I need to go review my notes again! I thought I was supposed to use a catchy title that people would search for!
I’d like to let you in on a little secret place I found that is a nice little getaway and dog friendly to boot! It’s the Mystery Location I teased you with on Wednesday.
Jekyll Island is one of the “Golden Isles” of Georgia. As one of the barrier islands in the coastal region, there is a diverse ecosystem for those folks who enjoy getting out with nature. We were there on a weekday so it wasn’t too crowded-I’m sure come summer the beaches will be hopping! The coolest part is the beaches on this island are dog friendly all year long! Many Georgia beaches are either not dog friendly at all, or have restricted dog access during the summer months. Jekyll Island has a typical “sand and waves” type beach but that isn’t where we visited. If you plan your trip during low tide I would recommend driving to the north side of the island for a walk on Driftwood Beach. It is just beautiful and only a short walk from the pier.
If you ever consider taking a vacation in this area there is fishing, horseback riding, a water park, and TONS of history. This area was active in not just the Civil War, but the Revolutionary War as well. If you are into golf…they have you covered! You can rent bikes and ride on the trails as well.
It can be hard to find activities to share with Bella due to her anxiety. The loud waves made her a bit nervous but overall I think she had a good time. The beach is full of new and potent smells (rotting horseshoe crab anyone?). The picture from the Wordless Wednesday post is us looking with the beach to our back…it is a salt marsh. During high tide the area fills with salty water and feeds many animals that live in the muck.
No Bella…you may NOT roll on that!!
