As many of you know, Brett and I went to Georgia last weekend.  We landed in Jacksonville, FL on Thursday and, contrary to my expectations, it was actually quite green, woodsy, and pretty.  My first thought was "where are all the palm trees?"  But I guess that's just Florida stereotypes talking.  Here is what it looked like as we drove from Jacksonville North to Georgia: 

We drove across the cool bridge in Brunswick, and got to check out the beach (yay Atlantic Ocean!) in Saint Simons Island.

I did enjoy the large, relatively uncrowded beaches.

And the very East Coast-looking plants.

This guy was doing a really good job windsurfing.  I said "Wow, he hasn't fallen down at all!"  Then he fell immediately.  I take full responsibility. 

I really loved the incredibly old oak trees draped in Spanish moss.  These ones were at a park on Saint Simons Island. 

On our last day, we headed North to Savannah.  It was raining, but we didn't let that ruin our adventure.  The parks in Savannah were absolutely gorgeous, and the architecture of the buildings was amazing. 

Can you believe that this is someone's actual house??  How cool is that?

We really enjoyed walking around, dodging the raindrops, and checking out all the scenery.

If you would like to check out more pictures from our adventure, they can be found here.

Fun photos! Amy. I have never been to Georgia, but would love to go some day. My mom and Dad lived in various places in the South in the early days of their marriage and often talked about the Spanish moss.

So? Would you like to live in Georgia?
