Tybee Cold

Hard to imagine, but freeze warnings were issued last night for Tybee Island and nearby Savannah. Brr!

Nice morning view of the marsh, from INSIDE. 

So today’s plan was to do indoor activities.

We began the day in Savannah at Back in the Day for cappuccinos and seriously tasty biscuits.

Then on to Milan Day Spa for seriously amazing pedicures.

This being the start of 4 days of St. Patrick’s Day revelry in Savannah, we quickly headed back to Tybee.

We found a beautiful Healing Eucharist Service at All Saints Episcopal Church on Tybee Island, led by a recently retired chick priest from Baltimore. We were dismissed with these words: “Our worship is over, our service begins.”

Then it was time for serious eats at Girald’s Pig and Shrimp. Pulled pork sandwich and fried shrimp. Yum!

Then back home to just lol. Read. Nap. Watch the NCAA’s women’s basketball tournament selection show. I’ll be rooting for the USC Gamecocks.

This time on Tybee Island, and especially this day, has allowed my soul to catch up with my body. I’ve been speeding and hurrying in my daily life, rushing even.  The beauty of Tybee Time is that it both allows me, and calls me, to slow down.  To stop.  To find a slower rhythm of my days.  Time to reflect.  Time to chat with God.  Time to just be.  Then when I leave this place, I will have gone far toward the restoring of my soul.
