The seashore

by mssinglemama on April 8, 2010

After a pit stop in Charlottesville, Virgnia to see my little sister


who had went out of her sweet way to get me a few 31st birthday presents



and even make me a cake


John and I made it to Tybee Island in Georgia.

Like fish out of water, or washed up jelly fish buried in the sand of the tide, vacation is a bit alien to us. But we’re trying to accommodate our predicament as well as we are able.

First order of business.

A morning walk on the beach.

Complete with hearts in the sand (that we didn’t draw… I swear).

And a few phone calls to inquiring family members.

Then, after soaking up some rays, with our ridiculously high SPF lotion, we headed out to explore the island.



Tybee Island, off the coast of Georgia and just 20 minutes outside of Savannah, is packed for Spring Break with tourists, families and teenagers in bikinis.

Realizing the family beach scene was not ours John and I headed out to Savannah in search of a cold drink, non-fried food and some loud music. But before all of that we did some walking and lost our breath, again and again at the beauty of this ancient Southern city.

Your over my way, at least not far from you. Plan to take my little man there at the end of May and possibly head up towards Myrtle Beach.

Your sister has excellent taste!

Please, I implore you, share some information about that hat – like who makes it?!

I want one, bad!!

Happy birthday, happy rejuvenation, happy rekindling, happy recharging and happy travels!!

(I just realized that every sentence above has an exclamation point, sorry for the overuse but I do believe they were called for…(!))

Not sure where she got it, likely a small shop in Charlottesville. I will get on her to post a link here for all of you.

Happy Birthday from a fellow Arian.

The pics say it all – looks like you had a fantastic time.

The faded blue, red and yellow things…. I kept going back to look at them – are they boats or what??

They are boats indeed… love them as well. Old, little tiny boats. Not sure if they were decorative or real.

Happy Birthday and as my 3 year old daughter would say, “you look gorgeous, beautiful, and fabbbbulous!”

I am happy to see you took time for yourself. It’s amazing what a few days will do for the soul!
