Tybee Island, Georgia

This month brought us to hurricane ravaged Tybee Island, Georgia. Our RV park was just getting cleaned up and reopened after the storm, but was packed to the brim anyway. The sides of the roads were piled high with debris and it seemed like every house in town had roof replacement underway. The main pier was closed, unfortunately, as well as a few of the beach access boardwalks. Coincidently, it seemed like every other house was for sale. Bad timing!

The park, Rivers End, was nice but crowded. James was able to take full advantage of the workout room, something that is not offered at most other RV parks. The pool was closed, however, which is to be expected. Most parks advertise a pool, but they are almost NEVER in working order.

Making friends with one of the many feral cats on the island.
Despite the fact that Tybee is only about a 20 minute drive from downtown Savannah, it feels well removed from all the hustle and bustle of the city. There are no fast food chains here, and it is legal to drive your golf cart on the street. The town is very walkable. We were able to go everywhere from our RV site (the main drag,  the beach, the park downtown), which was nice since since parking is very limited here.

Fort Pulaski (yes, they let dogs tour the facilities!)
James tried his hand at ocean fishing this month, but didn't have a whole lot of luck with the pier being closed. He almost got a giant crab, but of course they let go of the line before being brought in!

Now we are headed to Florida, and after a few days of 50 degree weather I'm ready for the heat again! We may have a new project coming up next month, so stay tuned!
