The Folks Behind the Curtain

Well, Where to Start?

We're a family of four (Rick, Martha, Josh and Scott) who love Jekyll Island and have been going there for family vacations for close to 30 years.

I'm Rick, the writer of the family, and it's my wish to share our island home-away-from-home with you through the medium of the internet and this site, Jekyll Island Family Adventures. Hope you enjoy the ride.

A Little About Me

I wear the pants in the family (Martha just picks them out for me, and takes care of everything else). I'm a husband, a dad, a registered landscape architect in Georgia, a musician, songwriter, storyteller, hiker and tennis player (bad knees and all).

I love the water and boating and now that the kids are grown, head out with Martha to Jekyll Island every chance I get.

We hope you enjoy your journey through Jekyll Island Family Adventures. And I'd love for you to let us know what you're interested in, so I can write about it in these pages. If you have an idea for content, or on how we can make Jekyll Island Family Adventures a better resource, just use the handy-dandy contact form to get in touch.

You can also follow us on our blogette, the Turtle Gram.

Other Stuff

I also write and publish fiction and non-fiction, which you can find at DragonLyre, my author/publishing site.

Kindest regards,
