My afternoon walk along Tybee’s South End

Oh my gosh, the weather was so glorious today! I took an afternoon break from all my emails and work to take a walk to the very south end of the island and see how the sands were shifting.  The Tybee Island South end keeps getting bigger as the sands shift south.  During extreme low tide it looks like you can almost walk all the way over to Little Tybee Island – which of course you can’t because of the tide shifts.   Then I walked again at dusk with the dogs to the south end fishing pier to watch the winter sunset- brillant reds and oranges- the winter sky as the sun sets.  All I could say out loud was thank you thank you thank you.   I’d read somewhere that if the only prayer you ever say is thank you- that’s enough.
