Tybee Heat

All things came together for sunrise viewing today. Warmer tempature, awakened early, and resolve.

After a 10-15 minute walk, determined by number of bird sightings along the way, the glow of pre-sunrise came into view.

As we walked the boardwalk across the dunes, something else came into sight. A CAR. We were pretty certain cars were not allowed on Tybee Beach, but we checked the sign which posted all “unallowabkes”. NO unauthorized vehicles. Could this SUV be authorized?

We thought not. So a call was made to the Tybee Beach police. The woman seemed astounded to hear the car was actually on the beach. Giving her the location, we set off to walk along the surf to await the moment of sunrise.

Such beautiful images!

Contrails crisscrossing the sky.

Gulls and pelicans skimming along the water.

And the moment of the first peek of the sun.

Then a bursting of color as this new day began.

And then the police arrived.

We watched from afar as three young men were roused from inside the car and handcuffed. Suffice it to say, we moved on as we saw one being led off by the cops, and the other two permitted to drive off.

The first hour of our last day on Tybee Time started off with adventure and beauty. Can’t wait to see what the rest of the day brings.  I know at the end of the day there will be parting, but the promise of return for Lent 2018 has been made.
