Beaching, Shopping, Eating, and a Sunset on Tybee Island

Tybee Island Tourist Shops, Headed to the Beach

What a beautiful sunny day it was yesterday on Tybee Island.  However, it was a windy one as well. 
George and I paid for beach chairs and umbrella.  But so windy they had to come get the umbrella :-(  So I really lathered in sunscreen!

The tide really comes up this far to just below where my feet are.  It was low tide obviously.  
Yesterday was so windy that every few minutes you would see boogie boards flying the area, kids floaty wings going down the beach, and a few sand storm type of things.  People walking had to really watch their eyes when facing the wind.  People were getting sand in their eyes.  It's always a little windy at the beach but this was a bit crazy.  

We would watch people come and try to put an umbrella up - and it would be inside out within a 60 seconds.  

These girls in front of us had some really good beach music! 
George and I decided to go walk up to the pier.   Every time we go up there, someone catches a shark.

The ocean was really brown yesterday.  I think because of the storm had really stirred up the surf in the previous days.  And there were white caps out.

We left around 2 or so and went through some of the shops on the way back to the house.  I bought another cover up.  George bought another bathing suit.  I took a shot of the house.  

Love the tropical trees!  

We hung out at the pool the rest of the afternoon until time to shower and get ready for dinner.  

We ate at AJ's which I had been looking forward to all week.

One of the things I've liked here is that during the week, there is not much of a wait to get in anywhere.  However, I"m not sure about the true summer months that start next week.  

Matter of fact, Memorial weekend starts today, so we are expecting crowds to come in and party crowds will be back.   We are still planning to go to the Crab Shack tonight.  We'll see if we can get in.  But all the other week days, we've walked right in and sat down for the most part.   We had to wait long enough to go to the bar and get a drink and then we went to our table.  Hey maybe they planned that, lol.

We had a wonderful meal overlooking the back of Tybee Island and the marsh area.  Just beautiful.  We hung out til sunset.  The food was excellent and better than I remembered.  Fried flounder, grilled shrimp and blackened scallops is what I had.  We had a couple of appetizers at the table and one was the crab legs.  Oh my!  Love them!

Getting caught and acting like he wasn't!

What a great day we had.  And came back and I tried to play Tropical Farmville but kept falling asleep.  lol  So why fight it?  The dogs and I went to bed.

Today is our last full day on Tybee.  We will get up tomorrow and head south toward Jacksonville to see my Aunt and Uncle.

Today we'll need to eat up some things in the fridge and we'll need to pack!  We've enjoyed our week here.  I've enjoyed being with Don and Lisa!  I've enjoyed the island.  I will be ok with going home.  Next beach time, I think we may do Destin, or somewhere on the gulf.  I miss my white sand beaches.

Well, better get off of here and start the day.  I hear rumors that Don is renting a bike for a day.
I'm sure the rest of us will have a beach walk in our future.  I'm not where I just have to have a beach sitting day.  I got my fill of that yesterday.

Ya'll have a good day! 


  1. So glad the sunshine came out for you. I don't know if I could ever get my fill of beach sitting...for now I have to be content porch sitting instead. Enjoy the rest of your vacation!! It all looks just wonderful !

  2. Wow!
    What a beautiful week you have had.
    I love the beach house, pool, and the beach. Sunsets. The food, especially this last one, look so good.
    You really have a good documentation of your vacation. So nice. Memories.
    Enjoy your day!
    Monica :)

  3. Really good pictures. I like the one of the drink with shrimp sticking out of it. We've never been there. We usually go to North Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. It's really nice.

  4. The sunsets are spectacular. Beautiful pics of you all. dinner looked scrumptious and that bloody mary looked like a meal.
