“Lord, when You came to the seashore you weren’t seeking
the wise or the wealthy, but only asking that I might follow.”
~ Cesareo Gabarain
In mid January of 2012, we took The Little Teardrop to Skidaway Island State Park, near Savannah Georgia. While staying there, we decided to take a day trip to nearby Tybee Island, Georgia… about 30-minutes away.
Tybee Island is just a hop, skip, and a jump from Skidaway Island. It was the most typical seaside town that we encountered on the trip… just a quaint little place. I promptly fell in love with the town.
For our own future reference, we decided to drive through and survey the only campground on the island… the only one that we knew of, anyway. It was nice However, we are more comfortable staying in State Park-type campgrounds. So, on future trips, we will probably stick with Skidaway Island for camping, and take day-trips to Tybee Island… just to visit the town, and for the seashore.
The Tybee Island seashore is lined with wooden swings, perfect for relaxing and taking in the beauty of the ocean, along with the multitudes of sand dunes & Sea Oats.
While on the island, we decided to eat at “The Crab Shack”… not affiliated with “Joe’s Crab Shack”. The food was good … there is such an abundance of wonderful, fresh seafood in this area.
The patio was beautiful… with trees growing up, right through the floor of the deck.
The inside seating wasn’t spectacular… typical “Crab Shack” decor.
We had considered eating at “Uncle Bubba’s”, which is Paula Deen’s Brothers’ restaurant. We had originally decided to try The Crab Shack, because we had eaten at Paula Deen’s “Lady & Sons” the night before. We wanted to experience something different, this time.
I certainly wish we had planned more time in the Savannah area, because I surely could have spent another entire day, on Tybee Island… lovely place!
