This month we enjoyed a family vacation on the Georgia gem Jekyll Island. We stayed four nights at the Westin resort and could not be happier with the experience. The hotel is beachfront, our rooms had ocean views and the weather was very good for relaxing and catching rays on the beach.
This picture was taken from a second floor patio at the Westin. The image is idyllic in the sense of summertime at the beach, I feel.

Within the Colleton County refuge's 8,000 acres is the Boynton Trail. A day can be spent at this place alone, with its miles of trails through and around former rice fields and wooded areas.
I have visited the Boynton Trail (this link is one of my posts) a number of times over the years. Several of my Donnelley and Boynton blogs posts can be found by using the "Search This Blog" feature to the right.
