Beachy Keen Cottage Weekend!

Tybee Beach & Pier
I had an awesome Memorial Day weekend, with two of my best girlfriends, LC and VB!  We rented a beautiful little Tybee Island cottage, and had lots of fun in the sun.

I picked up VB at the airport, and then we headed to Pooler, where LC lives.  Due to some airport delays, we stayed in Pooler for the night, having dinner at Sam Snead's (their specials are the best!), fro-yo at Lovin' Spoons (Original Tart is my favorite flavor!), and watching The Hangover 2.  That movie had me doubled over laughing!!!  Definitely a fun girls' night.

The next day, we headed to our cottage bright and early.  'Fiddler on the Creek' was a gorgeous one-bedroom cottage with a private dock on the marshes.  We loved our little escape.

We grabbed brunch at The Breakfast Club, one of the South's top-rated restaurants for breakfast.   It's been featured in numerous magazines, and I really liked it.  Afterwards, we spent the day sunning at the beach, grabbed a quick lunch at Fannie's, then headed back to the cottage to freshen up.  We had dinner at MacElwee's, Tybee's oldest restaurant, and drinks at Huc-a-Poo's.  I loved the slow pace of everything, how we just had the time to do anything we wanted... exactly the restful weekend I needed.

The next day, we lounged about the cabin, cooking breakfast and lunch on our own.  It felt good to just relax and enjoy the beautiful screened porch, talking about anything and everything together.  For the weekend's highlight, we headed to Skidaway Island to go on a sunset kayaking tour.  Not only was it great exercise (we were STARVING afterwards) but we saw a gorgeous sunset and had a great time on the water.  It was definitely my favorite activity this weekend, bar none... and it's hard to get me to say that about something that doesn't involve FOOD!

LC and VB are two of my favorite travel buddies.  I can't wait to spend a long weekend with them in Connecticut in June, a Blue Ridge mountain cabin weekend in October, and the wedding of the century in Maui for LC/PD in December!
