Arenal Volcano

Tuesday morning, we left the Southern Pacific Region of the country or where we had been calling home for the past five days. We drove up the coast then headed inland towards the Arenal volcano. Google maps said the trip would take five and one half hours. Well, Google was wrong. While I appreciate the […]

Tybee Bubble

Rainy days, there have not been too many on Tybee this year. Really, only a couple since spring, and even those were just an occasional shower, not an all day soaker. There were a few in the forecast, but they seemed to scoot around Tybee either to the East or West of us. Locals refer […]

Life Lessons From Our Garden

It’s 10am Saturday morning. The sun is casting it’s rays and throwing diamonds across the sea. Birds are serenading the droves of tourists walking down 14th Street as cars speed around them. Everyone is in a big hurry to get to the beach to swim, surf, and worship the sun. As all of this beauty […]

Groups of four dressed in outlandish costumes to identify themselves as a team. Each team represented a restaurant, bar, family or […]

Only ten short weeks ago, I met some new friends that had recently moved to Tybee. Kelly and Eric started talking to me one night when Sean was playing at the Sandbar. Kelly had been following pictures I shared on Instagram in the months prior to our meeting. She too is a nature photographer and […]

Family Affair

It was time for me to emerge from my cocoon of quilts and wool whether I wanted to or not. Layering sweaters and scarves for the wedding ceremony that was taking place on the North Beach of Tybee. In the spring and summer, I usually wear a light cotton printed sundress or pastel capri’s to […]

My Birthday Re-cap

My birthday celebration couldn’t have been more perfect. It started before I got out of bed with personalized videos sent to me, one from a friend I had only met once seven years ago, and one from my brother in Nicaragua… When technology is not driving me crazy, it is truly amazing me! Then Ava […]
