06.05.16 The beach at Tybee Island, Georgia

tybee island welcomeSunday, June 5, 2016  – About 30 miles from our RV park is Tybee Island, Georgia.  Very much a beach community and very different from Hilton Head Island.  Tybee Island has a population of 3,000.

The three mile long beach had many folks on it today.  Children playing, Roy sitting and watching and me playing!! Playing in the ocean was fun and I collected some seashells for my collection.

This is the first time we’ve had to pay to park at a beach.  It was $2 tybee-island-mapan hour and automatically charged us for two hours.

Before the rains came we enjoyed a bite to eat at the North Beach Bar and Grill.  Really neat place!

Tomorrow the rain will continue so we will head back to Savannah Tuesday to see more of this amazing city and to eat at Paula Dean’s restaurant there. Really looking forward to that.

On our way home from the beach yesterday we saw some crazy cute shops.  We stopped and I’ll write about that adventure next!

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!

  1. The Breakfast Club is my favorite place to eat at tybee island. Fannies on the beach has a great flounder sandwich. The Rivers End RV park is over by the lighthouse. We plan to spend a few days there this summer. My old home town.

    1. I’m glad to hear that ya’ll are going to be spending some time in your home town! That’s always wonderful. We saw Rivers End RV Park when we passed by on our way to the beach. The North Beach Bar and Grill was right where we came off the beach so we stopped there. We’re eating at Paula Dean’s tomorrow! Ya’ll take care! Rosalyn
