Tybee in early January 2015
We arrived on January 3, 2015 at 1:00 a.m. Unpacked and hit the sack. We woke up refreshed to a Tybee morning.
Cooler of course here too. A jacket is needed at least for us in the early mornings when the temps are lower. Many of the locals are still wearing shorts and flip flops with short sleeves. We have enjoyed being able to get outside and walk, bike and spend some sunny moments on the beach. We walked up to the end of our street to see if the Wood Storks that winter here were back. We found them!
We biked around and enjoyed seeing some of the Tybee Christmas decorations that were still up.
This house on the way to North Beach was the clear winner for Best Christmas Decorations!
We love the far end of the North Beach and found it to be as quiet and peaceful as usual.
We decided to visit A.J.s on the Back River for Dinner. We were surprised to see an early thick white fog roll in about the time we arrived. It was so thick the river behind the restaurant just disappeared! The fog added to the ambience and made for a cozy dinner.
We had one rainy day and took that opportunity to go see UnBroken. A movie I would highly recommend about personal courage. We opted to pass on dinner at SOHO in Savannah due to the wind and rain and opted to stop by Thunderbolt for an early dinner at Tubbys. More cute Christmas decorations.
Both the wreath and the bow was made of Burlap. A cute rustic look that fit the restaurant well.
After an outdoor lunch at North Beach Grill. We spent the afternoon on the Beach. Then we got Brave! We Cooked Blue Crabs! A first for us. Beautiful before and after. Amazingly good and messy fun. You have to work for the sweet white meat but what there is of it is wonderful.
This morning we donned our jackets and grabbed a Tervis of hot coffee and headed to the North Beach to catch the sunrise. The first thing we noticed was that the Full Moon was still up and was smiling at us right beside the Tybee light. The sky was a perfect pale pink and the moon huge. The photo doesn't capture the beauty of the moment.
The sun didn't let us down.
We are looking forward to temps of 64 today. Hoping to do some more biking and beach time this afternoon. Temps are plunging tonight when that huge cold front arrives across most of the country. Temps will dip down here as well. We plan to head back to Virginia in the morning. Have to reserve some of the precious vacation days for more future trips. Sniff. We'll be back in a couple of weeks. We are also looking forward in February to attending the Savannah Book and Author Festival again!
So very glad we came. January for us is just fine on Tybee.
