Tybee Island is a city and Island in South East Georgia and is a popular retreat for locals and tourists alike. Tybee played an important role in the American Civil War, when Union soldiers laid siege along the North Coast. This ultimately aided their capture of nearby Fort Pulaski, and saw the first use of rifled cannons in the conflict.

Even more history…
Hmmm…I seem to have gone off on a tangent again. I really must stop that. Anyway, as I was saying, we wanted to see the sunset. At that time of night, the car park was fairly empty and it was just a couple of dollars to park up for an hour. And so we waited. And, boy, was it worth it!

The night was warm and still bright and the shadows created by the sinking sun were fabulous. I’m so glad I refrained from my usual nightly cocktail until we got back to Savannah. Go me, right?
Have you caught the sunset on Tybee Island?
