Our visit to Tybee Island

Hey yall! How's life treating ya?  Mine has been pretty busy and about to get even busier (the life of a retailer) so I am so glad I got to get away for a nice little vacation recently.  If you follow my blog you already know that my husband and I finally got to visit Tybee Island and Savannah, Georgia.  I have been wanting to go here for a few years now.

I recently promised to share a few photos from my trip so here they are.
Here I am standing (smirking) in our cute and cozy little condo for two!  

Rarely do I share pictures of myself but since I was all gussied up and ready to go to dinner this night I thought these would be okay to share.

We were going to Uncle Bubba's (Paula Deen's brother) restaurant for dinner this night.

This was the view off our balcony.  It wasn't Ocean Front but was Ocean View. 

We stayed on the north end of Tybee Island.  It's the end that feeds into the Savannah River.

It's also the end of the beach where the boats occasionally come by.  This was a shrimp boat that came by and parked close in for awhile.

We sat back in our beach chairs every evening to enjoy watching the dolphins play.  I've never seen so many dolphins in one area regularly.  They even jumped up high doing back flips a few times.  It was so fun to see them!

Here are a few more random shots of the North shore at Tybee.






There were a few beautiful homes on the North shore.  I love how they did not look like the typical beach homes you see on the coast.

Check out this door to the beach!  


On our first full day at Tybee we went downtown to the South beach area to check it out.



Lot's of Oceanfront condos with public parking in the front, but it's not free. Be prepared to pay everywhere for parking on Tybee. LOL!



Here are a few shots of the pier at Tybee.




We also decided to do a little walking around the furthermost point of Tybee on the South end to check out the homes.

There is quite a variety of styles.


I just love this little scene I spied through the trees...

...and this one over the fence.

There were so many attractive beach homes both old and new.

And so many colorful ones too!

The next day we toured the riverfront at Savannah which is only about 15 to 20 minutes away.



Here is a  memorial statue of the waving girl who was often seen waving the ships in.

My yacht! Haha!  I wish!  But seriously, this was one big beautiful boat!

We had lunch here outside on the upstairs patio at Tubbie's.  It was delicious!

Then we returned back to the condo just in time to  catch a glimpse of a barge ship passing by...

..and to soak my tired feet in the ocean just before sunset.


I see a Mermaid in this photo, do you?

What a gorgeousness beach and weekend!

 I hope you enjoyed our visit to Tybee Island as much as we did.  My husband actually enjoyed Savannah just so much that he wants to return again to check out the rest of the city in more detail.  There's so much to see there you can't possibly do it all in one day.  I give both these locations a big thumbs up!

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
