Road Trip To York PA. A Side Trip to Tybee Island Lighthouse

My family lives in York PA. Robbie and I hadn’t seen them for a long time. We were planning a trip north for a visit in the spring of 2020. Due to the Covid 19 outbreak, we needed to postpone our trip to York. Fast forward to spring of 2021. Vaccines are available and things are starting to get back to normal. My wife Robbie and I both got the vaccine. My mom and dad also both got the vaccine. So our trip to York was back on! We were looking forward to seeing my mom, dad, kids and grand-kids.

We usually get a flight into Baltimore, but for this trip it just worked out better to drive our car from Titusville FL to York PA. So this past June we loaded up the car and headed north. We reserved a room in Lumberton NC, about halfway to York, for the first night. Sitting in the car for hours and hours is not fun. To give our butts a break, we planned a side trip to see the Tybee Island Lighthouse. Tybee Island is just east of Savannah GA and about halfway to Lumberton. Robbie and I enjoy visiting lighthouses, and we hadn’t been to this one. It’s always nice to visit a new lighthouse. Tybee Island is a nice little Georgia beach town. The lighthouse didn’t seem that big, there are 178 steps. We have not climbed very many steps or anything else lately. By the time we huffed and puffed our way to the top, we felt every step! The view at the top was worth it! We enjoyed visiting the Tybee Island Lighthouse and it was a nice distraction from our long road trip.
