I think I was the first one to mention that I’d been craving chicken wings, which led to a discussion of which local restaurants served the best wings. But my criteria for wings is where can I go and get photos also, and with that in mind Hooters was the obvious choice. Naked wings with a Parmesan rub, and one order of sunset please.
In addition to offering up the chance for a pretty sunset to go with your wings, this Hooter’s location is only minutes from home. So it will stay at the top of my list for a place to grab a beer and some wings.
I leaned forward off the couch, curious to check the transom over the front door. It was a few minutes past eight and I wondered if the sunset had been pretty. The color I saw sent me out the door to check further, and I found this.
The pretty sky last night made me decide to head out the door to see if the sunrise would also be nice, and it was. So the feature photo was this morning’s sunrise, as is the one below. Right outside the door…
I was watching TV in my little house. My recently acquired app that predicts how good sunrises and sunsets might be had me happy to stay home, it wasn’t going to be much. From my chair I can see a sliver of the western sky above the sheers in the Florida room, and it looked dull and gray. But down the hallway is a back door with a little diamond shaped window in it, and when I noticed it glowing red I stepped outside to see this amazing chunk of sky. So my trip out for the sunset took me only 10 feet out the back door, but it was the prettiest one I’d seen in a while.
Our last night on the road brought us to Tybee Island for the night. we stopped early and headed off to see the Tybee Island Light Station, which was very nice.
After a few shots we decided to find someplace to have a beer and a little something to eat before we went in search of a hotel for the night. We chose Fannie’s before we saw the bar stools, but once I did see them I knew that we were staying for sure. I mean, what would you have done? LOL.
We dug into the coconut shrimp and they were so good that I decided I had to take a picture. The lemon pepper wings were great too. It’s been a wonderful trip from so many points of view, but I’m so tired and there are too many pictures to go through, so I decided to leave you with some fannies to (hopefully) make you smile.
I wasn’t quite sure where I was heading for the sunset when I left the house last night, but I wound up at Green Key beach, where I found it was high tide and I regretted my choice immediately. High tide leaves you with exactly one view of the sunset, unless you are this guy…
He may have been standing in the water because a cast of characters had totally taken over the other possible view…
There was something new and different to see on the beach however.
This rock tower was built and rebuilt a few times while I was there. Another photographer and I walked onto the sand to take a picture as this boy was placing a small stone atop his tower.
I called to the kid, “Don’t knock it down yet.”, and the photographer answered, “Oh, I won’t.”
It did appear that the sunset would be extinguished early.
But the sun emerged from the clouds for one last lovely view…
I spent a day concentrating on my various twinges and trying to decide if my second Moderna shot was giving me side effects. I decided that I was fine, but I was home all day while I made up my mind. Packing actually. I’ll be riding up to a cousin’s house in Charleston tomorrow and family will be more on the agenda than photos. Of course I had the TV on as I packed, and my current binge watch of Criminal Minds came through with a charming quote today, from Mark Twain. I had to look it up;
“When I was younger I could remember anything, whether it happened or not,but my faculties are decaying now, and soon I shall be so I cannot remember anything but the things that never happened.“
How charming is that? But sad because it’s true. And as a person who has lots of experience with her mother, and then her daughter, correcting her memories I think I can relate. The same episode ended with another quote that had me grabbing my phone to look it up;
“Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.” Kierkegaard said that.
The day began when I ran out front and took the feature photo at 6:30 AM. And this last I took at 6:45 PM. We will turn the clocks ahead tonight. Sunrises will be easier to get to, and sunsets will have me out later than I care to be.
