About the Book

Sandy Britches and Sandy Toes My Jekyll Memories is a collection of memories of Jekyll Island complied by Jeff Foster. Join him as he takes you along on family visits, traveling from the suburbs of Atlanta through South Georgia to this wonderful Island and then back home. Some of these memories started before he was born and continue through today. Join Jeff as he relays stories that span the last 50 years. Camping at Cherokee Campground, and staying at the Jekyll Estates, The Wanderer, and The Seafarer Motels all bring memories of a bygone era. The family spent many fun filled days at the beach at the old North Picnic area and St. Andrews Beach. Stories of souvenir shopping at the Jekyll Pharmacy, Whittle’s Gifts and Maxwell’s Hardware, having meals at the Jekyll Island Seafood House, as well as daytrips to St. Simons Island, St. Mary’s Georgia and Fernandina Beach Florida; all play a part of Jeff’s Jekyll Island story. Jeff also tells of the changes he’s witnessed to Jekyll throughout the years brought on by both man and “Mother Nature”.
