It’s A Love Thing On Tybee Island

It’s a love thing on Tybee Island.  Summer is here and that’s when the love darts start flying all over.  Kissy faces and goo-goo eyes fit right in with barefoot beach strolls and hand holding with the one you love.  Here are 15 ways Tybee Island is even more special when you celebrate it here in a happy little house by the sea.

1.  Enjoy the water.  Take a dip.  Enjoy a sip.  Become a Mermaid.

Ranger and the Accidental Rescue

ranger2 rBy Mermaid Mona
Cat-free for 4 months.
That’s right; we lost our last sweet kitty in August 2015 and had decided that, due to our desire to travel in coming years after retirement, it would be best not to get another kitty. Yes, we really missed having a pet. Yes, we struggled with the decision. Yes, we determined that, in spite of our love for cats, it was best, given our circumstances, that we not get another pet.
Yes, it made it easier to travel; no one had to be asked to feed any pets while we were away; we could just get in the car and go with no pet depending on us for care and feeding. Yes, is was a bit quieter and lonelier around the house sometimes.
Then, out of nowhere, just before Christmas, he appeared. First, peering in at me at night through the window scaring me to death and running away when he was seen. Then, gradually getting less scared and more willing to be fed and petted. (he took to the “being fed” part rather quickly!)
Yes, we had said we wouldn’t get another pet. But, in this instance, he got us.
Yes, he was hungry and scared and obviously had been abandoned or lost…we’re not sure. Yes, we have a soft spot for critters and couldn’t turn him away. Yes, we now had a mouth to feed and a responsibility we were not looking for. Yes, it now makes it a little harder to travel.
ranger3r
Yes, he was kind of expensive as he was young and needed shots and neutering. Yes, he has made himself at home in our house and our hearts and has quickly become a member of the family. Yes, we know we “didn’t want any more animals to care for now,” and… Yes, once he was here, we realized and admitted how very much we both missed having a kitty to love. Yes, sometimes the easy way isn’t always the best way. Yes, he is sweet and loving and captured our hearts very quickly. Yes, he’s already spoiled.
rang r
Yes, he needed us and we, although we didn’t realize it, badly needed him too. Yes, we are “in love” with Ranger and that’s the truth.
This is the story of Ranger and the accidental rescue of Mermaid Mona.

Screened Inn circa 1929

screened in circa 1929Those hot, muggy and humid days of Summer are cooling down and the crowds of the season have ebbed like the tide.  This is the time of year when our beach weather is so perfect and when we’re not booked up back to back.  It’s also a great time for you to get in another end of Summer getaway to celebrate family and friends or to just give yourself a respite from another long work week.  Our Screened Inn circa 1929 is just that kind of place where you can get nestled in along the quiet north end of Tybee just to eat, sleep and idle away your stress.
