Our Tybee Island Adventure!

Tybee Island is near Savannah, Georgia, on the coast near where South Carolina and Georgia meet. Its about an eighteen hour trip, we stopped in Fort Robins and stayed one night at Warner Robins Air Force Base, with Monica and she was able to come with us for a few days as well. This picture is in front of the little cottage we stayed in that week, isn't it cute!?!

It was about a two block bicycle ride to the ocean, which is where we spent most of our time. We rode our bikes everywhere, its about the best way to get around on Tybee Island! And, it was fun!

We rode to the beach every morning and spent a few hours there soaking it all in. We browsed all of the little gift shops, took pictures of the lighthouse (and everything else) Todd and Trevor played a little beach volleyball, we did a lot of relaxing! It was great, this was a very nice place to relax! I didn't get a picture of it but there is a really nice pier and there is the cutest place on the pier that make THE BEST pina coladas!

We just couldn't get enough of the ocean, I think it's my favorite place to be. I love the sound, the smell, the wind your hair, the shells and the dolphins! Todd always says, " don't you just feel so small in the world, when you are standing there looking out at it (the ocean)? It's so big!"

So, after a day in the sun, we would head home to our little beach cottage, maybe take a nap (*gasp*) and get cleaned up (our cottage had the coolest outdoor shower I have ever seen). We would head out for dinner, there were several fun places right on the Island. Our favorite was Fannies on the Beach, pictured below. It was all open with a view to the ocean and really good food!

We were here over the Fourth of July, and it was so much fun to ride down to the beach, watch the sunset and then watch the fireworks from the pier.

I would really recommend taking the time to visit if you ever get the chance.
