We love our labs. Chocolate , yellow, black. We love them all. Yes we are crazy dog people. Updates on two of our special dogs. Knight is back at the guide dog foundation in smithtown,ny and starting his harness training. He has all the makings of successfully completely guide dog training. We are all keeping our fingers crossed!
Toby is the chocolate lab who was in the kill sheltar here in savannah. He had terrible manage and was a big rowdy teenage dog. Lots of energy and no one wanted to adopt him. Manage looks terrible but is very treatable. We pulled him from the sheltar and fostered him until the very kind folks at Florida Lab Rescue offered to find him a home! So we drove him to Florida and they will have him on their website and help him find his for ever home!
We love our labs!

It’s going to be another fun filled celebration on Tybee Island when the Mermaids make Halloween a special treat! You can be right in the middle of all the fun with a stay at Madelyn’s on the Marsh circa 1940.
Each year, the Mermaids help turn Lewis Avenue into a spook-tacular street for Trick or Treat delights. Here are some photos from Lewis Avenue last year. The Mermaids will be celebrating and giving out candy this year from Crabby Pirate Cottage circa 1940. We’ll even be giving out Beach Bum Biscuits for the ghoulishly decked out pets that come Trick or Treating, too! Continue reading
Don’t forget. Our 20 sea turtle nests are starting to reach day 60 in their hatching process. Lights out (or shades drawn) whatever we can do to help reduce the sky glow for Tybee and keep lights from shining on the beach. Our increasing number of nests is a direct result of Tybee helping keep our beaches dark during sea turtle season!
We love our wild Georgia shrimp. Tybee has her own fleet of shrimping boats. They are docked at the entrance to Tybee where the lazeretto bridge welcomes you on to the island. Our shrimpers are out every day bringing those fresh shrimp to the docks. I think the boats are a work of Art unto themselves.
Yes. I do believe these dogs are about as lucky and happy as they can be! Lazy Friday afternoon!
We now have 16 sea turtle nests on Tybee and the season isn’t done yet! Please continue to help keep our Tybee beaches dark this summer. The darker the beach the more sea turtles who come ashore to nest!
Some of you may remember a few years ago when there was a twig nest of green herons. I loved watching them as high up in the tree as they were. I know the sound of their bird calls so when riding my bike home from sea turtle patrol this week and heard their calls i looked up. There on the power lines were about 6 green herons. It’s hard to see them but they are there! I wish some mother green herons would nest in my yard next spring!

This beautiful palm sits right in front of our historic home on officers row at Ebbtide. Look at what’s in the center of the palm. Gorgeous!!
