Tybee Island

We just got back from a lovely week on Tybee Island, visiting our son-in-law's mother and helping her pack to move to TN. The weather was warm and lovely , the company was great, the food was delicious and we had a wonderful time. We went to the St. Patrick's Day parade in Savannah - our first time andpaybe the last but I would like to go again if I can. We went to Savannah College of Art and Design to see their current exhibit which is most interesting , and we took walks on the beach. We ate at some great places and slept with the sea breezes wafting in the windows.

We also helped to clean up a plumbing problem, as well as packed some boxes and pulled a trailer down and back. It was the least we could do, under the circumstances. I took some pictures which my computer doesn't want to accept and did a very little painting. As a watercolorist I am a fair acrylics painter.
Looking out the bedroom window in the morning and out the living room and eaten area windows at any time we often saw ships heading up the channel of the Savannah river. 

Each of the little rectangles on the ship is a container that people sometimes use as houses or that fits on the back of an 18 wheeler. The command tower is nine stories tall from the deck. I can only imagine how big the ship is below the water line. 

Here are my two pale and slightly crooked (the image, not the painting) efforts at capturing the scene. That was the walkway we take to the beach. Sandra Bullock has a house two down from here but she was not and rarely is in residence. 

All in all is was a magical week and restorative. As a bonus, when we left only daffodils had bloomed and now there is color everywhere - Redbuds, pears, cherry trees, dogwoods budding out, grape hyacinths, violets, pink hyacinths, tulips - the world is full of color. 

All will be well, 


I like your paintings. Nice! I agree with you that the view is beautiful at Carolyn's house.
