Wife & I just got home from 10 days & 1000+ miles roundtrip – camping with RubySue. Started out with 3 nights outside Knoxville, at Volunteer Park – attended Freshman orientation at Univ of Tennessee – our daughter will be attending in the Fall.

Left Knoxville and headed to Tybee Island, GA for a week of RNR.

Was the first time wife & I have been without kids on vacation in 25 years – Lived it up!

Enjoyed the beach (til our umbrella blew up), & explored Tybee Island & Savannah. Savannah is the most beautiful city I’ve ever seen – they’ve done a great job preserving its history – architecture is amazing.

Welcome to Tybee!

Set up at River’s End – great campground! Beach is about 200 yds away!

Korean War Memorial at the end of US-80 in Tybee – “given by Republic of Korea & a grateful nation” – even more meaningful given what’s going on in the News.

It’s worth getting up early on Tybee!

In addition to be a Light Station dating to early 1700’s – it was also home to a military base, Fort Screven, built in late 1890’s

Theater, built around 1910, has been restored and hosts movies nightly – we went to a documentary on sea turtles

Cathedral of St John the Baptist – must see! Is open for self guided tours – took no pics inside – is amazing architecture / stained glass by Tiffany.

Bonaventure Cemetery – went to see the tombstone from “Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil” – turns out it was moved downtown to a museum due to damage by vandals/sightseers after the release of the book. Definitely worth the trip anyway! Cemetery even has an app that provides bios/history of many of the people buried there.

Statues at Entry gate to Christian side

The Crab Shack – great / fun place to eat – quirky – great views of river; dolphins; alligator feeding; & plenty of places for photo ops – just happened to catch a couple tables open for this pic
