More vacation

Day 3 got a later start we had breakfast and coffee in the room, Drew headed out after breakfast and we watched a movie. After the movie we took killer to the pier. A storm was rolling in from St. Simons which was beautiful to watch. There were 6-7 dolphins playing around the pier. While we were there a fisherman caught a small shark and clay and sarah got to touch it. Someone else had caught a crab and clay let killer check it out. She did not like it, apparently my crustacaphobia rubbed off on her.
Sarah left later that evening and we were lazy, we got stuck watching "wild man" which is a pretty hilarious show about turtle man ( a guy who catches vermin or nuisance animals).
Day 4 we slept in again and then headed over to Brunswick. We got some fro-yo and drove onto St. Simons. We walked around the village and sat out on the pier for a while. We got pumpkin muffins for later at the 4th of May. We were trying to figure out what to do for dinner and ran across the website for blackwater grill. This place had been featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives so we had to check it out. We had 2 hours to kill before they opened so we drove around the island went to a little pet store and a natural food market where I got a fresh apple, carrot, and ginger juice. Yum!
We had a really nice dining experience at the Blackwater Grill. Then we headed back to Jekyll and got ready to go mix and mingle with Clay's work folks. We had a nice time and a super late night. We got in around 3 and I was so lazy the next day! We watched a lot of tv and waited for the tide to go out so there would be beach at the villas then we took killer back to the ocean. We had gotten her a tiny little inflatable pool that we put her in she could float with us out in the water. When we got back she got a bath in the sink and then snuggled down in a blanket in her new favorite spot (in the recliner). Clay has his conference stuff starting tomorrow, all this rainy weather has made me lazy so who knows what I'll be doing.

Day 2

On day 2 we took Killer out to the beach for the first time. I was very surprised when she ran out into the water all excited and frolicking. We ran back and forth in the surf and she barked hello to people as they went by. After running around for a while clay headed in the water and she followed him as well as she could into the waves. I scooped her up and she sat on clay's float with us the rest of the time we were out there.
Clay sat by the ocean and read while sarah (my sister) and I walked killer up the beach. We made it just to the beginning of driftwood beach and made a plan to go there later in the evening.
Drew came down for the night and we all loaded up and drove down to driftwood beach. Sarah got some neat photos there and we all got bug bitten. Worth the view though! We drove around a bit and decided on Fins for dinner. When we got back all shortbsleep sessions caught up with me and I was out like a light.

Beach Day 1

We headed out Friday for vacation after loading down my little car with a weeks worth of stuff and a killer dog. We stopped and picked up some bbq in Macon and dropped by Mema's for dinner. We had a nice visit with her and she enjoyed seeing the great gandpup. With sleepy eyes we headed south and were glad when we got to Clay's mom's house. The next morning we got up and had a giant spread for breakfast/brunch before heading to the beach. Killer got her fair share of spoilage too between the cat food and dog treats.
we got to the beach later that afternoon and got checked in, we like our little home away from home! We headed to the grocery store to get our essentials . Sister Sarah came down too and met us at the grocery store. We finished up there and headed to Willie's wee-nee wagon for some grub. We brought all our stuff back and had a relaxing meal at the villa. Clay eventually fell asleep in the recliner and Sarah and I strolled to the boardwalk and sat there listening to the waves and enjoying a cup of coffee in the seaside night air. We went to bed after getting back and I had a 4 hour power nap and was good to go at 7am. Clay was up early and we took Killer down for her first look at the beach. We sat in the Adirondacks and watched Killer excitedly greet everyone that passed by.

Casablanca night - Yelped out at Imperial Fez

Clay and I recently attended another Yelp event at the Imperial Fez Moroccan restaurant in Atlanta.  We were excited since it was a themed event and they encouraged everyone to wear a costume.  

 We got decked out in our most Casablanca-ish attire and I put on some serious Red lipstick.
