Tybee Style’n

Jennifer Knox & Mom on a Pirate Pedicab

Last Saturday was the Tybee Tour of Homes.These two ladies caught my attention in the middle of my docent duties. Hiring Pirate Pedicab was a brilliant cost-effective way to see the homes on tour. They were style’n for sure. It reminded me of the endless creativity that New Yorker’s draw from to make their lives easier. Brilliant!

For sure our own Dutton Waller cottage was a popular favorite. I was conscripted by Diane to work the front of the house to greet our guests. I quickly fell into it and discovered another tool in my skill set, Docent.

In all it was a great day the weather cooperated and the dogs remained  asleep in air-conditioned bliss in the laundry room. I’ll look forward to this event next year for sure.


Uncle Bubba’s

Uncle Bubba's Oyster House

Just so you know, as healthy as I tend to be with food choices there is the occasional fall from grace. This one was worth the fall. I was invited last week to have dinner with Diane Kaufman and Joy Pohjelainen. The task at hand was to try a few things on the menu at the newly refurbished Uncle Bubba’s Oyster House. The photo of me is proof that I do cheat every once  in a while. The spoon I’m holding has crab stew in it and was delicious. Now that I’ve achieved my goal weight my nutritionist encourages cheating. We also tried their Char grilled oysters. They are spectacular! My entrée was simply grilled Mahi Mahi and was equally perfect. Given my chosen profession (interior Designer) I also found the interior to be well done. It is a tasteful nod to low country charm and a compliment to Tybee Island just a few miles down the road. There is a gift shop strategically located so you won’t miss it. They can easily handle large parties. We were there on a busy night and only had a short wait with a reservation in place. I would heartily recommend this restaurant.

Enjoy! ~ Riptide
