Happy Earth Day everyone! What better way to celebrate this wonderful planet of ours than by taking a trip to Tybee Island, GA. First, let’s travel to the lighthouse and museum. As you walk up to the lighthouse, the walkway is laid with bricks containing the names of all the light keepers that gave their service. There are signs explaining the history of the walk and the surrounding area. There are gardens of fresh veggies and fruit trees all around the property. Inside the keepers house at the base of the lighthouse, there is an extensive museum filled with the history of the island and Savannah. Take the time to look around at everything, but make sure your day is set aside for several hours of taking it all in here. Then, from there, let’s have a stroll around the alligators and birds at the famous eatery and mini zoo they call “The Crab Shack”. They have lots of alligators basking in a little pond area just for them and a “bird room” filled with all types of parrots and cockatoos that meow at you. They learned this from all the free roaming kitties around the property. The cats don’t come up to you, they just mind their own business and don’t try to get your food once you have sat down to eat. As long as you obey the signs not to feed the cats, they will just stay content in their own little world and let you enjoy being a part of it. The outside restaurant is quite nice and smells of seafood. The sampler platter for two contains a huge assortment of food from scallops and crabs to corn and sausages. What a lovely place to have a meal. Let’s end the evening with a nice night stroll along the beach. Thank you Tybee, for making us feel warm and welcome and for giving us lots of wonderful sights and smells from nature to take in. Tybee fed our minds with history as well as all our senses with all the wonder of the seashore. There was so much to see and do there, We can’t put all the pictures in this little section, so please check out our new album on our page for all the wonderful things Tybee Island has to offer.
