July Fourth Getaway to Tybee Island

We escaped out to Tybee Island for the Fourth of July weekend and had a wonderful time! It was our first time out visiting and there was so much to see and do we are hoping to go again and explore, especially Savanah, Georgia since we only got a taste of the beautiful architecture and history.

A boy enjoying our view!

Exploring Oatland

Our first adventure was at Oatland Wildlife Center where we were able to walk the nature trails and get up close and personal with wildlife from all over the Southeast.

The Pirate’s House

Samantha had reserved lunch at The Pirate’s House after exploring Oatland at the Pirate House, an actual tavern that consisted of several buildings that were the original houses built in Georgia. And of course, we ran into these buccaneers!

Beaches and dolphins

There were so many dolphins! Or at least a large pod that lived right there. Either way, they were a constant presence right where we were staying, feeding, and playing. However, the crabs were not to be messed with, one jumped me and nearly took my saddle with him. He may have had a knife…

Dramatic recreation.

We are already planning a return trip for longer to explore all of Savanna and enjoy more of Tybee Island as it was a gorgeous area!
