It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.....

The holiday season is here!  The trees are all decorated and the festivities have begun! 
Oceanside Inn and Suites hosted it's first two Company Holiday Parties last weekend and they were a great success.  It's wonderful that in this economy companies are still willing and able to thank their employees for their service with a party!  For that, we are very thankful!

Last night we had our Annual Holiday Party and decided to make it an 80s Themed Party this year!  We really appreciate all our employees that came and dressed up.  Lots of fun was had by all as you can see by the picures below!  Afterall, who doesn't love 80s music, big hair, and tight-rolled jeans?!!

Jekyll Island: The Nearest Faraway Place

As a tribute to the Island's allurement, the Jekyll Island Authority has published Jekyll Island The Nearest Faraway Place, a coffee table book recognizing the inspired talent of residents and guests and their ability to capture unique perspectives of our cherished Island. During the period of March through September 2010, a competition was conducted to discover photographs of, and poems about, Jekyll Island. Scenic images and inspiring narratives portraying Jekyll's beach and marsh, sunrise and sunsets, wildlife, nature, historic landmarks, and views from above were sought for inclusion in this project. Submissions included 70 from Georgia, 17 from different states, 4 from Canada and 1 from the United Kingdom. Results of the competition were announced and the winning selections are featured in the commemorative publication.

Jekyll Island The Nearest Faraway Place is now currently available at the Visitor Information Center, the Commissary, the Jekyll Island Book Store, the Jekyll Island Museum Store, the Georgia Sea Turtle Center and Hattie's Books in Brunswick.

Happy Fall from Oceanside Inn and Suites!

Fall is in the air and we couldn't be happier here at Oceanside Inn and Suites!  This is my favorite time of the year, especially the months of October and November.   The weather is just perfect for bike riding, beach walks, and bird watching.  The beaches aren't crowded and the weather is still nice enough to do alittle sunbathing!  Just imagine a good book, your beach chair, and a margarita from The SandBar and Grill.....what a perfect day!

Here are a few of my favorite things about Jekyll in the fall...
*Cool mornings and evenings
*Bike riding
*Walking on the beach
*Watching the sunrise
*GA/FL golf tournament
*GA/FL Weekend
*Shrimp & Grits Festival
*Sitting outside at the Rah Bar
*Wednesday night Trivia at The SandBar and Grill
*Bird watching
*The Pier
*Outdoor weddings

What are your favorite things about the fall?
