We had such a great weekend! You know what we did? Absolutely nothing. Yep, you heard me right. We spent too much money going to eat at fabulous places and the rest of the time, we just rested. We sat on the beach (a little too long and that story is coming up) and watched movies and slept. I actually finished 3 books.
We arrived at Tybee about 9:30 and crashed. The beach was awesome as usual. This is the view from the balcony of our room. (We always stay in the same condo.)
On Saturday morning we headed out and ate a late breakfast. We went to two garage sales. At the second sale I bought Maci Clare several items of clothing for .50 each. Most were Gymboree or TCP. It was well worth it. We went and bought a cup of coffee and walked around the island a bit. We then decided aobut 11:30 to head back and relax on the beach. The day had warmed up really fast so we sat out on the beach until about 2pm. My first mistake was turning my chair to face the sun. My second mistake was not wearing sunscreen. I know, I know, I'm crazy. Even thought the sun was warm, the wind was chilly and I never felt like I was getting burned. Boy, was I ever wrong. I have a severe sunburn. In fact, my legs seemed to be the worst. I couldn't put on pants and had to wear a mini skirt the whole weekend. Jim had to go buy Aloe with Lidocaine. It was not pleasant.
We did head out to Savannah, where there was a music festival. I never really saw anyone playing music (except the guys who play one instrument on the street and want you to throw money in a tip jar) but there were tons of crafts. We walked around a little while and then headed back to the island.
We made a stop at Uncle Bubba's (Paula Deen's brother's restaurant). Jim ordered Chargrilled Oysters (YUK!). I was just satisfied with my shrimp. It was probably the best shrimp I've had in a long time. The food was excellent.
When we finally made it back, we just decided to do nothing. I ended up sleeping on the couch just because I was scared Jim would touch my legs (that is how bad they hurt).

Sunday morning, I sent Jim out at 9:00 to get reservations at The Lady and Sons (Paula Deen). He sent me this picture with the subject "The Things I Do For You". He stood in line until 10:30 and then we didn't have a reservation until 1:45. We did go eat there but I think after you have eaten there one time, you really don't have to go back. I can cook most of the things that she has on the buffet so to pay $40 is a little expensive. We rented "Twilight" (just okay) and "Slumdog Millionaire" (really good). We walked on the beach and then it started raining. So you see, we had a really relaxing mini getaway. We left Sunday morning and went through Hilton Head to the outlets. Didn't find much of anything. After buying all those clothes for .50 it is hard to go pay more even at the outlets.
I wanted some pictures of Jim and I that I could print in black and white so we made a few on the beach.I thought this one was the best. We were really acting goofy in the other ones so they didn't really turn out to good. But the next one is my favorite. It was taken ont he balcony right when we were leaving Monday morning.
My face looks really bad in this picture but I still think it turned out pretty good. My face has actually turned out to be worse than my legs. I have seven cold sores on my bottom lip. I have more blisters around my mouth and nose. And now it is peeling something terrible. So I kinda look bad. Just in time for Easter when I was planning on getting some good family pics. Oh well, maybe it will be gone by then.

What fun! I'm so jealous you were at the beach.

looks like great fun...Mark and I need a getaway like that one. We took that same trip about 3 years ago for our anniversary. Love those beaches.

I agree with you on The Lady and Sons...glad I went but I felt the same way...good...but that's really the way I cook all the time. I think if I had to go back I'd order off the menu...I've heard to try that. Mark and I enjoyed UB's so much more.

Sorry about the sun-wind burn...that hurts really bad. Keep the creams on and maybe it'll be gone by the weekend.

Have a Happy Easter!!!
