Enjoy a photo-shelling session

On a trip to Tybee with your significant other, you might want to take one of those long strolls on the beach that romantics have been talking about for centuries. Shake up the script by turning a bland beach walk into a fun photo-shelling session. Photo-shelling is the excitement of beachcombing and photography combined into one. You don’t need a professional-grade camera, any smartphone will do. Find beautiful shells on Tybee’s shore and create captivating photos for the pair of you to admire long after the trip ends. Frame your favorite and gift it to your partner the next time around.
