TYBEE ISLAND, GA (WTOC) -

Monday is a beautiful day at Tybee after Tropical Storm Hermine shut down the beach Friday. But as our first alert weather team told us, it would not ruin the whole weekend. 

Folks weren't going to let Hermine put a damper on their entire weekend. They're making sure to enjoy the perfect weather Monday. 

Some of the islanders tell me turnout is about what you would expect on any typical Labor Day. 

"I don't think it had any impact it's pretty busy so I think people didn't think much about it,” said Dennis and Tonya Brakhag.

There are still some branches down around the island, so reminders of Hermine are still here but it seems most of the cleanup has happened and folks are taking the time to enjoy a day off. 

One visitor to Tybee Monday told me even once they heard about the storm and the direction it was headed, they always knew they will still spend their Labor Day here. 

"We had to come this way anyway so we just took a chance and figured why not? Go for it,” said Bob and Rosie Watts, visiting from Houston, TX.

So even though we had a bad start, we are certainly ending on a high note.
