My second and final day in Savannah was spent taking a drive to Tybee Island with Sonya (my Couchsurfing host).
Located approximately 30 minutes by car from Savannah, with lots of shops and restaurants, it’s a great spot to spend the day!
As soon as we walked onto the beach, there were lots of birds! Seagulls and Black Skimmers! I started running alongside them so they would fly for our photos…
We walked onto the pier…
And under the pier…
It was a windy 60 degree day. Here’s Sonya…
After leaving the beach, we stopped at some shops that had interesting items…
On the way home, our next stop was the grocery where I purchased ingredients for the dinner I was preparing!
Sonya and her husband Graham had booked an evening carriage ride in Savannah, so we had a nice tour of Downtown after dinner. It was a little chilly, but they had blankets. I had seen much of what we saw during my self-guided walking tour, but the Tour Guide had some interesting tid bits to share. I didn’t know that most of Historic Downtown Savannah is built on top of a grave yard! Unfortunately, none of my photos came out…it’s difficult to take night photos when you’re moving!
I hope you’ll keep following my adventures as I travel to the Pensacola/Destin/Panama City Beach area tomorrow!

We were in Tybee last month for a week. Loved the peacefulness of the place (but is that because we were there in off-season?). Check our our Tybee blog so see a slightly different view of the island.
I was only there for a couple of hours. It was quite deserted. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
You really have a nice eye to capture a location through your pictures.
You’re very kind…thanks so much!
Some great legs you found there … love the photo under the bridge (as usual) – also l love the small shops set up – very cute.
I enjoyed this trip and as its costing me nothing I’m coming along with you…
The photo under the pier is particularly beautiful… and the one of the legs in the air had me doing a second take… I thought you might have fallen down a man hole or the like… then I realised they were fake…
Ha, ha. Too funny!
Great photos again. Nice to travel along.
It’s nice to have company! I thought the leg photo was pretty cool!
