Fall Roadtrip 2013: Part 3 Tybee Island


On our fourth and fifth nights of our roadtrip we travelled through Savannah to Tybee Island. It is an island approx. 30 minutes from downtown Savannah and a completely different way of life. We stayed at a wonderful bed and breakfast named Surf Song. It was a relatively new b&b and the renovation was gorgeous. We haven't stayed in many smaller inns so it was a new experience for us. We both really enjoyed the feeling of being at "home" away from home. Late nights sitting on the porch drinking wine, listening to the palm trees rustle and heading indoors to make tea on the stove.
 

you climb these lovely walkways to the beach from the streets just like in the movies

 







 the famous 46 foot tybee lighthouse. it was the tallest structure in Georgia.

 


 



SQUIRREL!

this is the fort across from the lighthouse. there were quite a few cats hanging out. this guy just wanted to pose with the sign.


the infamous southern live oak trees. seeing these trees made the whole trip worth it.

 


 
 

the first night we ate at AJ's Dockside Restaurant and this was the view from our picnic table of conch fritters as the sun went down. Just as the sun went down we got a glimspe of a school? of dolphins going by
 the second night was at a very locals bar named Huc-a-Poos where we had some fantastic pizza

 


Thanks for coming along so far,
 
Last stop on this roadtrip of photos is The Old Luckett's Store and......
What we brought home
 
 
Have a great day,

  1. We did a tour of Northern Georgia last month, but after seeing this post on the island I just told the hubs we need to take a tour of the Georgia coastline. Thanks for sharing this wonderful place.

  2. Love Savannah. We haven't visited Tybee, but want to. We LOVE Isle of Palms in SC & visit as often as we can get there.

  3. This northern Illinois girl is thoroughly enjoying traveling vicariously through your posts and gorgeous photos! Thanks so much for sharing. The only part of GA that I've visited is Reynolds Plantation, (gorgeous) which is between Atlanta & Augusta. The only part of Atlanta that I've frequented is its' highways, and they are not nearly as fun as everything you did & saw! :-)

  4. I've always wanted to vacation in Georgia, and your photos are making me want to travel there sooner rather than later. I've got to tell you that I LOVE the architecture of the old place in front of the lighthouse. That house has perfect curb appeal as far as I'm concerned.

Leave me a note. I'd love to hear from you.
Unless you're being less than friendly, then play like the rabbit and say nothing!
