Tybee Wind Surfers! We had great fun watching them till almost dark.This is why I love to go biking while everyone else is out chowing down at dinner. We get the beach all to ourselves. We tend to eat lunch out. More cost effective and smaller portions which is better for the waistline.
Trying to reel her in! I liked this angle.

Cottage Crazy: Wind Surfing, Flags Flying, and biking on Tybee Is...: We watched two young men wind surfing last evening on the north beach section of Tybee Island. It was hard to get the kite and the surfer in...
We did our part for helping a local charity raise money. They host an annual fish fry and for only $7.00 they fix fried fish, fries, cole slaw, hush puppies...AND grits. It was all quite good. We did have to laugh... the big sign was in the center of town so we assumed that was where the fish fry was...well not really. Everyone in the small town of Tybee knows the fish fry is not downtown but out near the lighthouse at the American Legion building...they just did not say that...cause it's a small town and everyone knows where it is...but us and the guy following us looking for said fish fry. Too funny. Everyone was as nice as they could be...they had tons of homemade deserts which I dutifully stayed away from. Saving up the calories for tonight's dinner at Garbaldis in Savannah...followed by a free Charlie Daniels concert in the park. Looking forward to it...we even remembered to bring our folding carry around chairs! It has taken me several days to rest up and get recharged but now I am ready to go into Savannah for the evening. The manicure and pedicure with leg massage helped with the relaxing. There is a nice nail place...Pro Nails...only 6 miles down highway 80 from Paws and Paddles. They did an awesome job...I almost fell asleep! Off to bike up to the south beach...have not been there on this trip...always a good view of Little Tybee and usually lots of kayakers as well. We have seen dolphins almost every day...usually see some on the south beach side as well...more later...

Monday morning was less breezy so the 67 degrees felt even warmer. It is early in the year so even with light wind we were blessed with NO no...see'ems! A very good thing.
We decided to run into Savannah for some quick shopping...a few things to add to the cottage...extra new tybee bath towels, rugs, etc. The colors are easy to find here but impossible at home...apparently stores must stock color selections regionally. Got exact matches of what Jane had picked out previously to stay true to her design vision. A guest actually our daughter mentioned a larger non-stick skillet would be a good addition to the well stocked kitchen...found one in bright red to match some of our other accessories. Picked up two replacement chairs for our directors chairs on the porch., Ours were less sturdy and 30 years old though they still looked great. The new ones will handle large loads if needed and look great as well...again they had them in Tybee colors.
By the time we finished shopping darn it was lunch time and Mike twisted my arm to stop at Tubby's Tank House for lunch. Awesome salads with homemade horseradish creamy dressing with a huge piece of lightly breaded flounder on top. Not sure what Tubby is putting in that breading but it was seriously the best I have ever had...not a single bite was left...and I usually bring home at least half of what I order...yum...I am full writing this but it still sounds good to me.
Mike is changing out a lock on the storage building to make sure it stays locked...the building is large and we are lucky to have that much storage space. Hershey was glad to see us and is already napping on the day bed again...The breeze coming in the porch windows combined with the sunlight dancing and the breeze from the ceiling fan has my head nodding...it could be nap time for me 2!
