Operation Save My Sanity

I needed a little recharge to the brain so, Heath and I decided to take a little 36 hour vaca to the nearest beach. We left last Tuesday morning and headed for Savannah which is just a short two hours from our home. About 20 minutes beyond Savannah is Tybee Island, our destination.

Tybee Island is such an amazing little town it is about 3 to 4 miles long. There are three hotels, a grocery store, a handful of restaurants and souvenir shops. It is so low key, I love it. Most people ride bikes around the town and hang out. This was the first Heath and I ever spent time together and it holds a special place in our hearts.

We got to Tybee at about noon and checked in to our hotel. Then we headed for the beach. There is nothing like laying on the beach relaxing. We both got a little to much sun but, it was worth it. Around 4 we headed back to our room and then walked to the ice cream shop and got snow cones.

Later that evening we drove back into Savannah for dinner. There are so many great restaurants to choose from. We just walked around downtown until we found a great Tapas Bar. The weather was perfect so we ate outside. After dinner we walked around till we found a live band on a patio and we got drinks and enjoyed the music. By that time we were exhausted from being in the sun so we went back to our room and passed out.

Wednesday after we slept in we went back to Savannah for lunch and a little shopping. Savannah has some of the greatest little shops. We also got some Savannah made ice cream, coconut flavor, it was soooo good! Once we stopped in the candy store (this is a must for every Savannah visit) we were on our way back home.

We weren't gone long. Just long enough for me to regain my sanity. I think I can make it two more weeks now till graduation.
