Good evening and come on in the house. I am so glad to see ya'll and share my last pictures from Jekyll Island. When you enter the causeway to the island you see these guardhouses that no longer have guards but they give quite a welcome.
The picture at the top is the REAL UGA bulldog statue that the football players touch as they enter the stadium for a game. AS you can see it is white and others you see will be painted Red and Black BUT look at the one at the visitor's center. It is is surely not white, red or black. The bulldog is the one on the left.
This is the Jekyll Island Georgia Bulldog. Evidently there is someone in the area that; paints these bulldogs to advertise or represent an area for we saw several different designs throughout the area.
The sea shell ears are most appropriate andwe saw dolphins most days.
His back has a large sea turtle on it and there is a turtle center on the island and a turtle society to protect the sea turtles' nests on the beach.
I found several complete sand dollars on the beach
The backside and tail is quite interesting. The tail is a coral snake and under the tail is a rattlesnake.
As you can see, this is not your usual bulldog and I thought you would enjoy seeing it. Now my grandson may not be too happy with it but we thought it was "cute."
Ya'll be careful going home and come back to see us.
The Georgia Peach
