Tybee Time

I’m baaaackkkkkk!  Did you miss me?  I bet you didn’t even know I was gone beings my lovely guests held the fort blog down? (Thanks again ladies!)

Nate and I took a trip with my family to Tybee Island, Georgia.  A whole week of sun, 90+ degrees, and no work….woo hoo to island life!!

And now you get to suffer through vacation photos…mwah ha ha.  I really think they could make vacation photos some sort of prisoner torture strategy!  Luckily I am just going to share with you some of my favorites and not all 1300 photos that my mom took (you only wish I was joking).

How’d we spend our time on Tybee Island?

We people watched from our condo…one of my favorite vacation past times…

Sunbathed.  Can you believe that neither of us got burnt?  Thank you SPF 45…and nap time during peak sun hours…oh, nap time…I miss you already…


We toured the Tybee Island lighthouse and surrounding buildings…

The house is where the lighthouse keeper lived.  The banister in the house was built to resemble the lighthouse…someone was thinking…

The view from the top was amazing…and super scary for a girl who doesn’t even like the second step on a ladder…

We took a day trip to the Wormsloe Historic Site where we strolled through the 400+ oak trees with beautiful Spanish moss…

The Wormsloe site contains tabby ruins that are the oldest standing structures in Savannah. True tabby is made of equal parts lime, water, sand, oyster shells, and ash.  You won’t find this as a building material in Iowa!

We ate the most delicious gelato once twice almost every night…


In the mornings, my parents and I would wander the island streets and check out the beach houses…and make room for more gelato…

We took a family photo…my dad was totally into it…

We also did some sightseeing in Savannah which I will share with you on Thursday…just when you thought the torture had ended!!  **insert evil laugh**

What’s your favorite vacation destination?  Are you a beach fanatic or land lover?  Are you the relaxing type or a go-getter vacationer? 

I want to hear from every one of you that reads this blog today….your comments may be the only things that get me through my first day back at work. :)


  1. wow! i love that last photo- he did an awesome job!
    and your dad clearly was into the family photo- that is so awesome! love it! glad you had fun!

  2. the first day back is always terrible! You got some great pictures...looks like a wonderful time :). We just booked our 2011 vacay-- seattle, Walla Walla, portland, sonoma/napa, and San Francisco....so ya, that probably answers your question, definitely not beach lovers here :)

  3. WOW great photos Nate! My husband and I were in Savannah the end of last week! Glad to have you back but did enjoy your guest bloggers

  4. Savannah and Tybee Island are on the top of my list for a next-vacation-spot, so I'm loving seeing these pics and can't wait for the Savannah recap. It looks so gorgeous and calm there!

  5. Oh my gosh, could you guys BE any cuter? Adorable family. I love the first picture of the two of you and the one with you two walking and holding hands. Looks like a lovely vaca. Hope you have a great day, back to the grind. (Clearly, I'm really back to the grind, too. I'm reading your blog instead.)

  6. your vacation looks like it was amazing!

  7. I have picture envy over that last picture of the dock. What a calming scene! Definitely huge print frameworthy!

  8. That looks like a WONDERFUL way to spend a week!! I'm a total beach lover, but one of our favorite vacation spots is Boston. We're headed back there in July and I can't wait!!

  9. Newbie to your blog....Awesome pictures! Really like your blog.

  10. YAY! Vacations rrrrrawk! You are so tiny, lucky girl ;)

    You should totally frame the photo that was taken under the dock. LOVE!
    Glad you're back

  11. Cool photos... especially the one under the pier. We're on vacation on the Outer Banks of North Carolina right now, so I'll be torturing folks with... uh, posting vacay photos on my blog, too! :) Glad you had such a nice vacation!

  12. the photo of you two walking through the trees was awesome! Nate took some really cool pictures of the scenery. Maybe a second career in photography? looks like you had an awesome time! never a dull moment with the Herricks! melissa

  13. What an awesome vacation! So glad you had a good time.

    Your photos are gorgeous - especially that last shot - truly amazing!

  14. I love Tybee Island! Great pictures :) Looks like y'all had fun!

  15. I love the pic of you two walking under the trees!

    My weekend started good. It was my 7th year anniversary and we were kid-free for the weekend, woot! (older son in San Fran for a band concert, and 2 youngins' at my mom's). Hubby & I enjoyed a nice dinner out Fri night, and Knott's Berry Farm on Sat. I woke up Sun w/food poisoning...and that's when the fun ended - my actual anniversary and Memorial Day sick :-(

  16. Welcome back, what beautiful photos so happy you decided to torcher us with them I can't wait to see more :o)

  17. I love the beach too!! I'm up for adventure too. Beautiful pictures!

  18. Trying not to be jealous--looks like you had a wonderful, relaxing, FUN time!! Hope you're not going through too much gelato and sunshine withdrawal :)

  19. I am dying to visit Tybee! Thanks for the pics. The last one is award winning!

  20. Gorgeous photos! Looks like you had an amazing trip :)
    I've never heard of tabby before...very interesting.

  21. As a fellow pharmacist (and blog lurker), I can relate to the bliss of a vacation! I hope the reality check wasn't to rough. Keep on blogging - I can't wait to see what ideas you're cooking up next!

  22. Wow, that looks great. I've never been to Georgia. Great photos especially that last shot. Way to go Nate!!

  23. Thanks for rubbing it in...just kiddin'. I'm sitting here is gray Seattle waiting for our summer to start. BooHoo. Great pics btw. I love the one under the pier. That's the type of pic I usually take. Pretty impressive that you never burned. I'll have to look into the 45 SPF. I would say that I do enjoy laying in the sun when I vacation, but I'm more of a pool person. My favorite vacations are ones where we go sight seeing. I have always wanted to go to Savannah and tool around. Love your blog!

  24. LMAO! I LOVE you Michelle! Torture... no way! I love looking at vacation photos and planning our next adventure! Glad to have you back!

    As for us, we love both beach and land, and love to relax and go-gettum'. I think we're ready for a super relaxing beach vacay soon tho! Too busy and too little time for down-time. :(

    Beautiful pic under the pier btw!

  25. First...I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!! Kimbo over at NewlyWoodwards introduced me...I'm hooked. :-) Second...any vacation with gelato is a vacation worth taking. Third...rolling on the floor from the family photo. Your dad's expression is killing me. Fourth...the "under the pier" photo is AH-MAY-ZING. Wowsa.

  26. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog.
