My amazing little baby birds are starting to fly. All this week they kept getting braver and braver venturing from the nest more and more. They’d sit on the branches for hours on end just flapping their wings. They are really too big for the nest now, but one will take turns sitting in the nest at a time. Then on Friday they started to fly! They flew from their branch on the live oak over to the big palm tree. They’d stay there for a long time then fly back to their live oak. Then today they’ve been gone for hours but now are just sitting on the branch, their feet tightly clinched and wrapped around their branch- they look exhausted. I don’t think it will be long before they fly and take off for good. I’m sure going to miss these little guys!
Those Disney folks just keep amazing us with what they are creating on Tybee. The newest scene for the movie was the “Tybee Seafood Festival” complete with a full blown carnival on the beach. A honest to goodness carnival was set up for the shooting and the Pier and Pavilion was turned into an old style carnival/ festival. Much of the shooting was done at night and the pier and beach was lit us with huge Football stadium style lights. My pictures aren’t the best but they show how the area looked. Tonight everything is gone, just like it was never here. But we are brainstorming about recreating this as an event next spring because it was so much fun just to have it all here for a few days!
The Tidal Flooding is wild! Spring tides combined with the new moon created this abnormal sitaution. The water is creeping up everywhere on the island with the tidal flooding 10 feet over the normal high tides. Highway 80- the Tybee Road was shut down last night, fortunately the road was not shut down tonight. Marsh water flooded over Venetian Drive- these are pictures taken by Sunset Cove and Tybee Tides ( appropriate name for sure!). Horesepen Creek looks like a lake because the water is so high. I rode my bike all over the island last night and was truly amazed by the water.
