April 30, 2014

We decided yesterday to take off to the water for a boat tour and dolphin watch with Captain Mike. His boats are located near COCO's Restaurant on the left just as you are leaving the island. The trip was fun and yes we did see plenty of dophins. It is always nice to be on the water. Fun to see the water side view of the houses and condos that we see as we bike around the island. Dolphins are tricky to photograph but we did get a few pictures.

Anne got this guy do his version of the Happy Dance!

The Three Amigo's enjoying the sea air and breeze. Love the smell of the salt air and the pluff mud.

Cockspur Light near Fort Pulaski

We took Captain Mike up on his offer of 10% off lunch at CoCo's restaurant at Dockside.
We sat upstairs on a open deck above the docks and watched the kayakers, and boaters come in and out of the small Marina. Lunch was very good. I would recommend Captain Mike and the restaurant. 

We headed back to Paws & Paddles for some back porch time. Later walked down to a couple of shops. So nice to be able to walk or bike to most everything on the island. Our evening walk ended at North Beach Grill for fruity frozen drinks on the Gazebo overlooking the ocean at North Beach. Kinda handy having a restaurant/bar at your favorite stretch of beach. 

This morning was cloudy but we had an interesting sun rise.

Loved the Peaked Clouds...

The clouds took off quickly and the sky lightened up.  We biked near the North Beach area and found a house with the most lovely rose garden.

The orange looking flowers are amaryllis. The flowers we grow in pots indoors at Christmas. Here they are outdoor plants! 

We biked back to Paws for more coffee and a light breakfast on the porch. We are watching a renovation directly across the street from Paws. The closed Jitter Bug coffee shop is being redone and we have heard rumors that the folks who run the awesome Tybee Island Social Club are going to open something there!  Now that will be convenient for us as well. 

We have had 5 sunny warmer than normal days. Around 10 this morning we started to see some rain showers. A bit of rumbling thunder in the distance and the promise of more storms later today. So we are catching up on reading, word puzzles, and picking up around the cottage. We are looking forward to the SCAD Sand Art Festival on Saturday at North Beach. Hoping for clear skies for good pictures.

More later...
