Hollybourne Cottage.  This is just one of the "cottages" on Jekyll Island that functioned as vacation retreats.  This one was built in 1890.  Visitors can tour the cottage during May on Jekyll Island- only a few miles from St. Simons.

We saw two dolphins today while boating near Fancy Bluff.  One was fishing, going up the river near our house.  The other was spouting, blowing spray into the air.  It was just a lovely day for boating in the Golden Isles.

The Pumpkin King, a rescued sea turtle, was released on the Georgia coast this week after being rehabilitated at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center.

The Pumpkin King was one of 70 cold-stunned sea turtles taken this winter by the Center after being found off Cape Cod in November and December.

The Pumpkin King was released into the Atlantic after being rehabilitated and treated for a corneal abscess.

The turtle was released with a satellite transmitter.  His progress can be followed at

Cormorants on the Dock

The cormorants were everywhere when we went on our one boat trip before the weather got really cold.  They dive for fish.

Cormorants do not have water proof feathers, so they have to dry out their feathers. When they do, they sit with their wings extended in a characteristic pose.
