beach day and a beautiful rooftop bar in Savannah

We headed to the beach after our morning tea yesterday. Just the two of us, our kids are scattered in Colorado, NYC and Savannah. We love the natural beauty of Hunting Island Beach. It is unique because it is one of the few undeveloped barrier islands on the East Coast.

The sky was blue over the entire island with the exception of the overcast beach.

We love our little roller cart. No grumbling or trudging along, hands full. Smoothly rolls over ever surface. $29 well spent, likely to last one season only but holding up great so far.

Lots of driftwood left from previous storms.

The beaches at the ends of the island are kept in a natural state. Leftover fallen trees from Hurricane Irene a few years ago have been left to help fight erosion. They are sculptural and beautiful.

But there are plenty of wide open beaches to enjoy.

We found five sand dollars.

Kayakers in the tidal creek on the backside of the beach.

Isn't Mother Nature amazing? So beautiful.

We cleaned up and headed down to Savannah to have dinner with our son who attends Savannah School of Art And Design. I posted about the amazing impact the school has made on downtown Savannah here.  We had drinks at Perch, a gorgeous rooftop bar nestled among Southern Live Oaks. Then dinner below at Local 11 Ten, a wonderful restaurant serving food from the local farms in Georgia and South Carolina. We loved it and highly recommend it on your next visit to Savannah.

What a nice day.....

Thanks for visiting!


  1. Oh, thank you for the suggestions! We're going down for 2 nights over Memorial Day weekend and will look into theseI am a happy camper with this warm weather!!!!

  2. Wish I could've spent the day with you! Both the beach and the rooftop look très lovely :)

  3. That rooftop bar nestled up among the trees looks amazing! Something totally different from the views I am used to from the best roof top bar nyc. I guess each venue has its own charm.


I would love to hear from you!
