Tybee Island Eye Candy

So…I’m back at Tybee Island. Today I gave a luncheon talk at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, and I think I can say a good time was had by all. Then I cruised down U.S. 80 to Tybee. It was a beautiful, sunny fall day. I passed fields full of just-picked cotton, farmhouses, changing leaves. It was a good day to be alive. It was even better when I got to my final destination, Fish Camp Cottage, another one of the adorable Mermaid Cottages. Fish Camp is a Jane Coslick creation, which means every corner of its restoration and decoration was lovingly thought out and executed. I’m going to do a little sidewalk supervising on The Breeze Inn while I’m down here, so stay tuned for new pics of the progress. But mostly, what I hope to be doing is starting my next book. Yes, it’s that time again. The island is quiet, I’ve got my chardonnay and pot of spaghetti, all I need now is some inspiration. Which I should get plenty of from Fish Camp.
If you’ve never been to Tybee for a little R&R, now is the ideal time. Lots of wonderful cottages available for rent, at reasonable prices. Beautiful sunny weather, cool temps, perfect for beach-combing, bike-riding and just hanging out. No traffic to speak of, no waits for a table at Sundae Cafe–our favorite dinner destination, or The Breakfast Club–which has just started serving an expanded lunch menu. Or you could go to The Tybee Market and pick up a steak or some seafood, and stay home and cook. Or drop by the blue seafood market as you come onto the island–do what the natives do and throw yourself an oyster roast. Don’t forget something to read. You could stop by Seaside Sisters and pick up a book–need I suggest a title?

  1. Thank you so much Mary Kay. We absolutely loved having you speak, sign books, and make us laugh ourselves silly Georgia Southern University. You are even more adorable in person and to hear you relate the stories of creation of your books was pure bliss. After your talk I went home and made a practice batch of Pralines (and made sure that they were the right size to fit in my TJ Maxx packages) and wished I could catch up with you and share some and go antiquing on highway 80 with you. If you ever need a recipe for perfect pralines, let me know. Love you, Jan Means
