Tybee Island Gives You Sandy Toes

tybee island gives you sandy toesTybee Island gives you Sandy Toes and that’s a good thing!  There are plenty of life’s stresses that give you gray hairs, crows feet, acid reflux and way too many frowns, so we’re always looking out for the good things that will make your heart sing.  The owners at our Sandy Toes Cottage have made some very cute updates and photographer Wen McNally has framed them up very nicely for us to share.  Kick off those clodhoppers, dig your toes in some sand and start thinking about your next visit to this cute, pet friendly cottage!

Sandy Toes is an adorable, bright and cheerful single-story cottage that’s located mid-island and about four blocks from the beach.  It’s conveniently within walking distance to Tybee’s Memorial Park where you’ll enjoy tennis, volleyball and basketball courts, BBQ grills, picnic tables and a great playground.

Savannah Boat Show

savannah boat showThe sun is peeking through the Winter’s mists and that means it’s time for the Savannah Boat Show and warm weather!  We’re all tired of socks with our flip flops and hot toddy creations.  If Winter doesn’t hurry up and leave we’ll attach tow hooks to it and drag it out to sea.

Just in case, let’s all turn out for this year’s boat show and make a few notes on what’s new.  The show attracts thousands of current and prospective boat owners and there will be plenty of extensive displays of the latest in watercraft lines, marine equipment, accessories and services.  In between, sign up for the great  fishing clinics and simulations, meet celebrity guests, and enjoy kids’ activities and great food at this family-friendly event.
