We just returned from Tybee Island, GA and I have a ton of photos to share. First, I will start with the lodging. We rented a great cottage on the North end of Tybee within walking distance to the beach. It was exactly what we wanted. The location was perfect, quiet at night, yet close to the beach. I really did not want to be in a party area, living in a college town makes me crave calm and this place was perfect. Having a kitchen allowed us to cook gluten-free meals without having to scramble at restaurants or only have prepackaged snacks for the girls. Here are some pictures of the cottage…
We rented a cottage from Weber Beach Rentals. The address was 7 Dogwood Avenue. It had a plaque on the outside that designated it as being in the Historic District.
Isabella really liked this spot in the front yard.
Ben and I spent several nights in the breezeway relaxing and listening to the cicadas.
The kids shared this room, which had cable t.v. (the majority of our time was spent out of the cottage, but when we were here, Vita could be found in this spot watching the Disney channel-most of you know how I feel about t.v. and we don’t have cable at home, so she soaked this up while she could.)
This was the room we used. Plenty of closet space and dresser space available. The cottage also had a washer and dryer in the bathroom which was great for cleaning sand and sticky ice cream treats from the kids clothes every night.
Having a kitchen made the trip so much easier. Eating in new places with the girls can be tough. Things are advertised as gluten-free but we don’t want to take the chance of it not being true or it being cross-contaminated, so we made most of our meals here. This also helped save us money throughout the week to do other activities.
Relaxing living room. We usually listened to music in here while dinner was cooking.
A welcome sight.
Over the next couple days, I will share pictures from our trip. We went to the beach several times a day, visited some cemeteries with amazing headstones, toured an animal preserve, strolled Savannah streets and parks, did a dolphin tour in the Atlantic Ocean and visited a plantation.
