The beach is a place where many people come to re-nourish their souls. Cares seem to wash away when the waves are kissing at your toes. That hectic life you ran away from seems so far away that you never want to return. A busy life is what we are accustomed to, but why? Life is so much more enjoyable strolling along the beaches searching for seashells and soaking up local color.
As summer drifts away, Autumn peeks her bashful head out and begins to bring down cool breezes. This begins a beautiful period here on Tybee. As the sea oats deepen from pale yellow to a deep gold, they wave in the wind and say farewell to hot weather. Fallen leaves prance along the ground daring you to dance along.
Sunsets are to die for! Skies are painted in reds, oranges, and even pinks. It’s hard not to smile while gazing at a gorgeous Tybee sunset. You can look forward to reading a book on the beach swings or watching the birds fly down to escape the harsh winters from up north. Scan the coastline to observe container ships bringing cargo into Savannah ports. The dolphins also chase the shrimping boats into port at Lazaretto Creek. The way the sunlight glistens over the top of the ocean will bring you peace of mind. You will be on cloud nine for days from the pure ecstasy of the simple things that most people take for granted. Science has proven that the beach cleanses your body of negative energy. It surely shows! A day on the beach is like a day in paradise.
Dance along the tides, wish upon the stars, and always have hope, even when there is none in sight.
