Tybee Island!

Yesterday we arrived at our vacation location. We are in Tybee Island, GA. We had never heard of this place but Seth just picked a random place on the map and found Tybee Island. The trip here felt like forever but once we got here and walked out on the beach we realized that it was very much worth it! It is beautiful! It isn't too hot and the breeze is perfect!

Unfortunately on the trip here I started feeling a little off. My throat started feeling scratchy and I started sneezing a lot. At first I just figured it was my allergies bothering me because they had been right before we left but I'm thinking I caught a little cold or something. Sooo... that means I have been spending most of the day resting in the hotel room. It makes me sad really but I have gotten to enjoy a few nice moments today. I am hoping I feel a little better tomorrow so I can spend more time on the beach and have the energy to do some fun activities outside. It stinks being inside all day in this beautiful place!

This is our view from the hotel room. This morning I was practically blinded by the sun's reflection on the water but a few hours later I could just sit and watch the waves. It is so relaxing! Makes me wish we lived closer to the ocean.

We had lunch at a place called The Sugar Shack. Seth made me laugh so hard while taking a drink I almost spewed it all over the place. I couldn't stop laughing for the longest time. I don't even remember what was so funny actually! ha! Then we grabbed some ice cream cones from there. I had the mint chocolate chip ice cream in a waffle cone. Yum!!

After lunch I needed to rest some more but before I could fall asleep I saw this giant ship so I had to take a picture of it!

While I was resting Seth went looking for treasures with his metal detector. He found this army man (not with the metal detector of course!). I named him Ty. He will be Galvin's new best friend. Galvin is the little ducky toy we found on a beach in Galveston, TX.

For dinner we went to Cafe Loco. The food was really good there! We were stuffed!

After dinner it was dark so we walked out to the beach so I could at least spend a couple minutes on the beach today! It was really dark so all we could see were the waves and the stars and boats in the distance. It was so relaxing just standing out there. I could feel God's awesomeness in His creations. It made me feel safe even though I felt small being out there. Loved it!
