The First Real Beach Day!

The weather has been so perfect that we decided yesterday to pack a picnic lunch and spend a few hours at the beach on Tybee Island. Heavenly!

Warm enough to enjoy the sun, yet not so hot to be uncomfortable. The water, though, is still a little too cool for me... It was a perfect day - even the dolphins swam by and said hello!
When we got home, we were greeted by fierce chirping on our front porch. Apparently mama and daddy wren are not quite fast enough with the food delivery...
I hope you all had a joyous Easter! Thank you so much for all your Easter wishes!!

P.S. If any of you are planning to see the movie "The Last Song" with Miley Cyrus (aka Hannah Montana), it was filmed right here on Tybee Island. I think it's playing right now.


  1. In dem Strandstuhl würde ich jetzt gerne Platz nehmen ... bei uns regnet es den ganzen Tag.
    Die Vogelbabys sind ja süß!!
    Ach ja, und zu Hannah Montana brauch ich nicht viel sagen ... meine Mädels schauen die Serie gerne im TV.
    Grüße, Verena

  2. Lucky girl to have a beach day! I want want of!

  3. Oh, beach day! Want one too!!!! I guess it won't be long before the wrens are out of the nest...

  4. Silke - it sounds great - I am jealous:-) Have a wonderful week, Inge

  5. omg i have not been to the beach in years... we used to go to sarasota twice a year when the kids were much younger. of course i was born in an island surrounded by beaches and here i am surrounded by pillars of concrete - life sucks. sorry, i don't mean to sound like i am complaining but, okay i am, i just miss living in a small town. this big city life and stress is turning me into a real witch...

  6. I miss the beach....the last one I was on, oh my.....when I was in college? Back in the dark ages of riding dinosaurs to and from school??? LOL!!! I love the ocean song, the heat of the sand, the cool of the beaches in San Francisco, and even the stink of the beached seaweed.
    Little birdies are always hungry! Great pic!


  7. oh my how wonderful! we had a lovely day here but no where near beach weather. It is usually a good 10-20 degrees cooler at the shore here. So even though it's just 5 minutes over the bridge it was just too cool. Your photos reminded me that last year at this time I was sitting on the beach at Hilton Head :)

  8. Wow - what a pretty beach! Sounds like you had a nice relaxing day. What sweet little baby birds - I hope momma and daddy came by soon with a treat to eat. Have you seen Molly the barn owl?
    She has all her sweet babies with her. The camera is quite addictive, I must warn you!
    Have a wonderful day! Theresa :)

  9. What a wonderful easter day you had! our beaches have already been filling up too, summer is coming.

    LOVE the baby birds, so cute!
    i hope you have a lovely monday Silke!

  11. Silke , it sounds fantastic with a day at the beach,- here as in Germany, it is cold-cold, a bit sun today, but we still wear our winter frogs,
    I love your pictures, and the little birds, are surely very hungry, guess they makes a lot of noise!!!
    Love to you dear,-tomorrow it is normal day here again, and Oster already over,-how time flyes......
    Hugs from me.

  12. How lovely to see dolphins! Happy Easter Silke! :o)xx

  13. Okay I feel better now. Crud, my body has been aching this weekend. I don't need to go to the beach, I just need a cup of tea and my drawing board today. One of those old age days...besides I am expecting a huge art supply delivery! YES!

  14. Hi Silke! Oh, I'm so jealous of a beach day... we're supposed to get whalloped by another spring storm tomorrow, with up to six inches of snow. Yuck! My poor budding tulips and daffodils. Ah well, it should make for a green summer.

    Hope you had a wonderful Easter. Sending hugs!

  15. How fun. We haven't been to the beach in years. Glad your day was great. It looks beautiful over there. Have a great week Silke.

  16. Looks like a wonderful day. The pictures are great and I love the little birds.

  17. Oh the beach looks so beautiful. I love the blues. What a great shot you got of the demanding baby! Happy Easter just a wee bit late! **blows kisses** Deb
