Let's Go to the Beach, Each.

       Rather than stay in the middle of Savannah, where the crowds are intense and the prices even worse, the thirteen of us stayed right outside of the city on Tybee Island in an amazing little beach house.

        Complete with fire pit, swinging bed, and adorable decor, this house was simple but still had "vacation home" written all over it. So we were in a great house, right on the beach, and due to the time of year, the island was practically vacant. AND fun fact that I did not know until we were walking on the beach when we first arrived, The Last Song was filmed here so that's a pretty cool bonus for the trip.

       Some of the group actually spent a good bit of time on the beach. Though the water was cold, it wasn't terrible. At night, the temperature would drop, and if you planned on walking the shore line then, you would want to be dressed in some sort of Fall get-up. 

       I went to the beach three times: Once when we arrived (at sunset), one early morning, and once at night. All three were great in a different way. I loved being able to be with (most) everyone that first day and feeling the ocean breeze for the first time in forever. I loved wandering around with Hannah and Bethany and discovering a Horsehoe Crab (whom I refuse to believe was injured/dead) and drawing bubble lines in the sand with our feet. With that said, I think my favorite beach moment was probably whenever Tim and I went on our night walk.

let's go to the beach photography savanna georgia vacation tybee island love night walk       It was the night after he ran the Half Marathon, and he was all sorts of worn out and sore. He knew I wanted to walk on the beach at least once with him before we left, as did he, so he sucked it up and walked with me. After just walking to the pier, I could tell he was in pain so I knew we would not stay terribly long. Once we got to the beach, we both immediately regretted everything. He was wearing a t-shirt and gym shorts, and I was wearing a long sleeve shirt and shorts. We were both barefoot. It was freezing, and the wind was rocking out. I am honestly shocked we did not come down with something after our little adventure. He crippled along anyways, and I tried to stay warm by hopping around him as we talked and laughed at our ridiculousness. It was just great. I love how we have the capability to take something as romantic as a night time walk on the beach and make it goofy and hysterical.

       Maybe it was a "had to be there" thing... Regardless, my overall Tybee Island beach experience was fantastic. It was clean and not crowded and made for an enjoyable vacation. I will say there is pretty much zip on the island. It is super tiny, and what is on the island is expensive for what you get. If you are going to Savannah with a group, I would recommend renting a house like we did on Tybee just because it is still cheaper than staying in the city, and it is a twenty minute drive away. Plus, you are right on the beach. It is a win-win-win situation.
