Today Jesse and I went out early to the small town of Hardeeville in search of breakfast. We settled on Waffle House…enough said.
After we returned home the rain and thunder storms started. It rained off and on the whole day.
We just hung out at home. We had invited Greg for dinner. I made penne pasta with shrimp and white sauce, salad and bread. He arrived at 4:00 and we sat and had wine. I had bruschetta as an appetizer.
My friend Jane had given me a recipe for a WW key lime pie for dessert. We had a nice evening just sitting around and talking.
Greg stays about 4 months of the year in Thailand. He owns a condo there and is able to work from there. He told us about his adventures.
We met Greg at the marina where his boat is docked. He has a 40 plus foot Hans Christian classic sailboat named the Galadriel. He was a fan of JRR Tolkien.

He were all hungry so we headed to a place called The Crab Shack on Tybee Island
Around the restaurant were ponds with lots of alligators, they didn’t look real but they were
For lunch we decided to share “The low country boil” for two. We all started with a bowl of cream of crab soup then this platter was delivered in the middle of the table. It has king crab legs, crab claws, shrimp, crawfish, sausage, corn on the cob, mussels and red skinned potatoes with melted butter for dipping.
This is what it looked like when we were finished. As you can see there is a whole in the table under the raised section that the food was placed on . Under the whole is a trash can for all the shells.
After eating we drove to Tybee Island beach but it was way too windy and cold to stay for long. As cold as it was there were still people in the water. Some were boogie boarding and a couple were kite surfing.
Afterward we went back to Greg’s marina and parted ways. On the way home we stopped at a Piggly Wiggly for some fresh veggies. It was our 1st time in a Piggly Wiggly. Not too impressed. The rest of the evening was spent relaxing if front of the TV and computers.
