OK... you caught me in my "work" clothes :)) My husband snapped this, one of the few pics of me!
That is the Tybee Island lighthouse in the background. Tybee Island, Georgia was a favorite location to capture images. It's face always changing- the people, the shore birds, the skyline, with each changing tide. Tybee Island is Savannah's beach with 3 miles to stroll along the Atlantic Ocean. It is a no frills place, that is why we liked it!
We had a house on the next island, inland from Tybee Island for 20 years. We enjoyed escaping from Ohio a week at a time to kayak, enjoy the great eateries from Tybee to Savannah, and the short jaunt over to Hilton Head. The area was a never ending story of our nation's history, good and bad. We came to the realization life was not waiting for us. We made our permanent move from Ohio to the sun drenched island life in 2014.
After five years we decided to move further south. The Savannah region was changing. Crime was increasing. There was no more leisurely strolls through downtown Savannah after an early evening dinner. It was just not safe any more.
We moved to Florida in a "utopian bubble" called The Villages. Now we can visit the Gulf Coast or the Atlantic beaches within an hour either direction...
Here's to all who love the shore as much as we do!
Stroll along these seascapes, you may begin to feel the breeze upon your face.
