Actually I've been back for a week but you know me..
I could go on and on about all the things we did in Tybee and Savannah but I have a lot of pictures to share, so I'll try not to get too windy.
We had to wake up at 3:30 in the morning to go to the airport. I think Emma's face describes how we all felt. (rough)
It was her first time flying, and she did soooo good!!
We spent a little time at the beach, she loved the sand and HATED the water.
It wasn't warm enough to swim anyway, but she had lots of fun crawling around getting dirty.
Check out Emma's mad scientist hair.;p
(Also Steven's stick??)
The main reason we picked Tybee Island was because it's so close to Savannah, so we could get two vacations in one. One of the my favorite things about Savannah is that you can walk EVERYWHERE. The town I live in isn't the most "walker friendly" place.
We spent one day in Charleston, where I forgot to take pictures of pretty much anything but this window.
And also this map, where I got to put a pin on my hometown. I've always wanted to do that. :D
We ate at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company and no that is NOT the real Forest Gump bench. (it's in a museum in Savannah of course) PS not to brag or anything but I totally aced the impromptu Forest Gump quiz from our waiter.
We could see a lighthouse in the distance from our condo, and one night I went running with Steven and we kept getting closer to it and making jokes about running all the way to it. Next thing we knew we actually had! Running on the beach; even in the dark, was so amazing! You know that "wall" that people talk about reaching and then breaking through? I always thought people had lost their freakin minds because there is no breaking through the wall for me. There was that night and I was so proud of myself. I didn't need to stop at all. I think I could have gone twice as far if it wasn't pitch black outside. I even walked the same path again the next morning with my parents.
We ended up actually going to the lighthouse later on so we could go inside, and climb to the top.
The view was absolutely amazing, until I looked straight down. Nope nope nope.
They have little houses that the lighthouse keepers used to live in and I was obviously drawn to the cupboard under the stairs because Harry Potter.
We went for lots of beach walks looking for sea shells and watching for dolphins.
I now want to move to a little beach town so I can breathe salty air every day.
Too windy for selfies.
I made a crab friend. He hung around me for a solid 20 minutes.
I went on a dolphin boat tour with my parents, where the highlight was actually seeing Steven and Emma waving from our balcony.
I saw some shrimp boats and made super original Lieutenant Dan references.
I ate ALL THE SHRIMP at ALL THE PLACES
I fought with Emma over turns on the hammock. (she won)
I took this ghostly picture of my stepdad..
We visited local coffee shops on every corner looking for iced coffee for me, and milk and bananas for Emma.
And finally we started making our way home. In Atlanta we were at the farthest possible gate, tucked away in an international terminal, next to a flight to Paris. Très jaloux.
No but really, I was so glad to get back home.
I'm tempted to post even more pictures, but I think you get the idea. <3 nbsp="" p="">
Are you going on any trips this summer?
