Our relationship with Sean and Nicole Barnes seems to consist primarily of last-minute adventures. Toward the end of January, Nicole asked us if we would be interested in driving down St. Simons Island, to the coast of Georgia to visit with her grandparents. The only excuse I’ve ever needed to do anything is, “why not?”
Plus, after consuming all the seafood I could ask for in Lousiana, I was eager for more. And My!Sean? You don’t need to ask if he wants to visit the ocean. St. Simons Island rentals and hotels were in short supply on such short notice. However, we were assured our accommodations were already taken care of. Travelers looking to enjoy the Golden Coast without the benefit of extended family will need to book at least 90 days out from their intended arrival date, Hodnett Cooper reports. St. Simons Island vacation rentals are decently priced with comfortable accommodations for couples or families.
On the second weekend of February, we threw our bags in the back of Other!Sean’s truck and piled in. Irish folk music blared, naps taken, routes argued over. We arrived in St. Simons that evening, excitement bordering on road-fueled irritability.
