Relaxing and Historical Tybee Island in Georgia
Before I go any further, I wanted to link yesterday's blog, since I don't think it was published in time to email.
August 26, 2019 - Game Capture Adventure in the African Bush
You wont want to miss the Guest Blog this week, which features a reprint of a previously published article about my friend Kaye's adventures in the South African Bush!!
Today is the two month anniversary since my dear dad passed away. Wow, how fast time flies and yet, it all feels like yesterday. Miss you so much Dad.
Tomorrow is scheduled to be a NYC day and Broadway show to celebrate Kelsey's 13th Birthday. One little glitch and I'm working on it - - considering we do not have tickets and were going to visit TKTS to get discount same-day tickets - we are not locked into any specific day.
We chose this Wednesday a few weeks ago figuring it was close enough to Kelsey's birthday and with it still being the summer, we could do a matinee.
However, the weather forecast says RAIN!!
Now, I am far from a rain wussy, but considering part of the day's experience was to enjoy being outdoors in Manhattan, I just feel that the rain will diminish the experience for my girl.
I'm in the midst of figuring out if we will either do Thursday or Friday for a night performance OR Saturday for a matinee. Will keep you posted.
My sister Danielle sent me more pictures from her vacation day in Georgia yesterday. This time, her and her family spent the day visiting Tybee Island.
Located 18 miles east of Savanna, Georgia, Tybee Island is a barrier island which has been a popular vacation spot since the late 1800s.
Who knew? I love finding out about places I've never heard of!!
So, between my own research and hearing all about my sister's first-hand lovely experience, Tybee Island sounds like one of those "hidden" gems for all kinds of fun!
Although this enclave is only three-square-miles, it certainly is full of everything one could want in a relaxing getaway.
The official website for Tybee Island is super cool and easy to navigate, jam-packed with information about shopping, dining and local accommodations and the plethora of activities to be enjoyed. My sister and her gang took full advantage of the white sand beaches, but there is much more.
From local attractions and historic points of interest to seasonal events, dining and nightlife, here are a few activities available for enjoying:
Tybee Light Station & Museum
Situated on the site of the first light to aid navigation constructed on the Southern Atlantic coast.
Tybee Island Marine Science Center
Visitors are offered a wide variety of year-round educational programs on the beach, in the marsh, on the water, in the classroom, and their Coastal Georgia Gallery.
Fort Pulaski, where in 1862 during the American Civil War, the Union Army successfully tested a rifled cannon, the success of which rendered brick fortifications obsolete.
Sea Turtle Season
Nesting season begins May 1st and typically ends at the end of October. The most common sea turtles are Loggerheads along the Georgia coast and although rare, appearances by green sea turtles, leatherbacks and Kemp Ridley turtles have been known to show up.
Tybee Island Beaches
Tybee boasts of two river beaches: the Savannah River Beach and the Back River Beach, each located on opposite ends of the island.
Here are some more lovely pictures of Tybee Island from my sister's vacation day!!
The following photos are from Fort Pulaski
Okay my lovelies - off to enjoy my day!
