Special thanks to our very first PMer (Postcard Mailer) Sarah who mailed the very first three postcards 2 from Tybee Island, GA. I pointed out as best as I could on the mini globe (LOL we are working on buying her a larger one soon) and here is what we learned about Tybee Island, GA.
Lights Out! May 1 - Oct 31
Light glowing softly on the horizon guides baby sea turtles toward the ocean. Artificial light leads them landward where they're vulnerable to predators, dehydration and tires. If you CAN see your lights from the Beach, they CAN too. So please Turn off or shade your house, porch, or car and other portable lights at 9pm.
Special thanks for any consideration by the Tybee Island Marine Science Center.
We also learned that many Gorgeians like to frequent Tybee Island Drive 20 minutes east of Savannah, Georgia, through a few miles of wide sky and salt marshes. This is where you’ll find Tybee Island — perhaps the most laid-back location on the southeastern coast according to http://tybeevisit.com. Tybee Island is the beautiful barrier island on the Georgia Coast that ancient Indians named “salt” (“duh bee” in the old Euchee tongue).
Kyra, Daddy and I hope to visit Tybee Island, GA someday soon. Thank you Sarah M for opening our eyes to such a charming not so distant place!
