Celebrate the success of the 2012 Savannah Preservation Festival: Preserving a Sense of Place on Thursday, May 31 from 6-9 p.m. There’ll be live music, hors d’oeuvres, wine, an exotic plant auction and container gardens by our area’s finest floral designers and it’s all taking place in the Isaiah Davenport Garden. The results of our month-long art and destination auctions will be revealed. Also, the winning entries for Pennies for Preservation Poster Contest will be on display.
The Davenport House garden is a place of beauty and peaceful solitude in the heart of Savannah’s Landmark Historic District. It is a wonderful place to celebrate the inaugural preservation festival and a perfect example of why it is important to preserve Savannah’s history and charm. Since 2001, Davenport House volunteers have taken on the stewardship of the garden and developed an endowment for its care. The most recent redesign of the garden includes beds containing representational plantings that include flowers, vegetables and medicinal herbs that may have been grown by the original Davenport house gardeners.
This festival has been a signature event that emphasized the Historic Savannah Foundation‘s core mission of education and outreach. The garden party will be an outstanding grand finale you’ll not want to miss.
Even better, just give me a call and let’s make it a long weekend with a stay in one of our fabulous Tybee Island cottages or condos! Stroll through historic Savannah, enjoy this exclusive garden party and then make it a weekend at the beach! We’re waiting!
It’s another fantastic week to be in Tybee Island and the fun keeps on coming!

The Beach Bum Parade might surprise the unsuspecting visitor. Like most parades, there are floats pulled behind cars and trucks. Unlike most parades, however, the floats, often trailers or boats, are filled with water-throwing paraphernalia. Spectators, lined up along the parade route on Butler Avenue, armed with buckets, squirt guns and hoses. What results is an all-out water war for fun loving beach bums of all ages.
Tips for our guests:
If you are arriving and checking in to your cottage on Friday, May 18th, you will want to try and arrive around 4:00 PM or after 8:00 PM, especially if you are staying mid-island and will need to travel down Butler Avenue or Jones Avenue. Also, just to make you aware if you are not already….you will want to stay away from Butler Avenue during the duration of the parade if you prefer not to get wet because if you do go down in the parade route area, you will for sure get wet!
It’s another great week of our Tybee Joy!

When you enjoy your time on the island, you’ll understand how easy it is to Quit Yer Crab Inn. How fast can you get here?
Tybee Island is a small barrier island on the Atlantic Seaboard, only three miles long. Its name means “salt marsh”, the abundance of which is one of its many attractions. The joy of the tranquility that can be found here is the result of careful city planning, which looks to preserve the unspoiled natural beauty of the beaches, creeks, and their native wildlife.
This small town accommodates both old island shacks and multi-million dollar homes. This is not a resort town, but rather a gem of rare beauty that can be enjoyed casually, with many fabulous restaurants, shops and local art galleries. If you feel like putting your shoes back on,(the flip-flops are hard to give up), Historic Savannah is only a 20 minute drive away. A truly cosmopolitan city, its abundance of antique shops, fine dining, art galleries and historic sight-seeing venues are world class attractions.
However, I’ll let you in on the real scoop. Once you cross the bridge onto Tybee Island you’ll feel all the layers of stress start to peel away and fly right out the window. Stop the noise and put away your watch. You’ll be on Tybee Time which means real living starts when you get here. Kick up your heels, get a little sand in your britches and just stock up on plastic cups to keep the cool beverages coming.
