After Wormsloe, we stopped at lunch to give the rain a bit more time to finish up. It was supposed to be done about noon, and we were pretty close to that time so we were just hoping to wait it our. We ate at this place called Kayak Kafe, and if you ever go to Savannah, I would highly recommend it. They had about a million things on the menu I REALLY wanted to try, it was so hard choosing! Yum. Turns out the rain did stop, and so we were off to Tybee! We started by heading to the lighthouse and lighthouse museum.
I guess the Tybee lighthouse is the 5th tallest lighthouse in the world, it's 178 stairs. I am proud to say Ellie and Aiden both made it to the top(and back down!), and Ellie did it all by herself! She was rather proud of herself, and rightly so! We couldn't go outside the top of this one, it was too windy so they closed it up right before we got there. Bummer. After we got down, Ellie kept sticking her arms out and shouting, "I did it! All by myself! I did it!" There were lemon trees all over the property and they were dropping lemons like crazy, so we might have picked one up and taken it with us. Later after getting back to the hotel, we used the sugar packets and cups they leave you for coffee, made homemade lemonade in our hotel room :) We also enjoyed seeing the lighthouse keepers house, and several other little historic houses on the property. Across the street, the lighthouse museum was pretty cool too! It actually filled with water during the storm, and the floors of the museum were still puddle-y in some places. We went out on the roof, and it afforded us quite a nice view of the lighthouse, surrounding complex, and the beach of course. Next we headed down to the beach! It was really windy, but not cold at all so we still had a lot of fun :) There was TONS of sea foam on the beach, and the wind would send it blowing and the kids had oodles of fun with that. There were puddles higher up on the beach, Aiden liked to spend his time there. He would just lay in the puddles and bury seashells, then find them, then bury them over and over and over again. He also really liked the little "rivers" flowing down the beach into the ocean. Ellie, Ben and I had a blast digging our own river bed and then re-routing the existing one to flow through ours. Aiden just jumped around in them the whole time we were doing that.
