Tybee Island







We went out to Tybee Island yesterday, not to the beach but rather to Fort Pulaski.   And we really didn't go to see Ft. Pulaski which is a 19th century fort named after a Polish count who helped the Americans during the Revolutionary War.  No we were there to see that lighthouse at Cockspur so I could paint and Mac could fish.
We began the day with a short walk out to the old North Pier through the maritime forest and then a
 longer walk out to the lighthouse.  Glorious day, painting went well but the fishing did not. 
So from there we went to Lazaretto Creek for lunch at Loco's Cafe and Grill.  Mac as always had a Low Country Boil (shrimp, potatoes, corn on the cob and sausage) which he said was pretty good except for the corn --as usual it had been boiled to death.
I, as usual, had fried shrimp, yum, yum, yum, big,
 juicy shrimp lightly breaded, need I say more?
Then after lunch we drove to the other side of the creek and both of us fished, I caught about a 2 inch I don't know what fish and Mac caught nothing, so it was time to head home.  Great day.
