Impressions of Savannah and Tybee Island, Ga.

[slickr-flickr tag=”Tybee”]

We’ve been in Savannah, Ga., and Tybee Island this week. I wanted to share some of the images — and impressions — of the area with you.

You can find more pictures on our Flickr page. And there’s even more on our family travel site, Away is Home.

    belissimo !

  • Great shots! I was going to ask what type of equipment you’re using, until I saw the picture! Sweet.

  • Thanks. The photos were taken with an iPhone 4S. The videos were taken with the larger camera.

     Chris, I thought you [used to] took digital pictures with a full frame Canon. Why the change?

  • It is great to see that the beach on Tybee is still wide open.  One of my favorite memories of my Mom was a time, the only time, she and I walked that beach for hours, talking, followed by a great dinner seaside.  Thanks so much for posting those pictures. 

  • I have a Canon 1d, but the iPhone 4S is really a game-changer for us, because it allows us to shoot, edit and post pictures pretty much instantly. And the quality is decent, too — in some cases, unbelievably good for a camera phone.

    Chris, spent a week at a time-share on Tybee Island.  I loved the area.  There is so much to do and see on Tybee Island and Savannah.  Also, good places to eat!  Joyce

    My daughter is going to college at SCAD in Savannah, and we go down to visit her at least 2x/year.  Tybee Island is a given to visit while we are there.  I adore that city and the beach – so beautiful and so much history!
