Travels in the South

13 Jul

Hello sweet friends.  Have you been enjoying our series of Travels in the South?  Today we want to highlight a restaurant that Fozziemom/Fozziedad and my mom/dad visited.  They didn’t eat there but wanted to see the ‘atmosphere’… yeah that’s it.  Atmosphere.  Daddy warned Fozziemom that she couldn’t jump fences and play with the ‘locals’ that hung out here at the restaurant.  You want to see the locals don’t you?

Well one of mom/dad’s favorite restaurants to visit is called The Crab Shack.  It’s located at 40 Estill Hammock Road, Tybee Island.  It’s a unique restaurant plus the wait staff are awesome… some with two legs and others with four legs – snorts with piggy laughter.

Does this picture give you a hint of what four legged wait staff we are talking about?  That’s right – gators.  The restaurant has a little pond out front where they raise these cute little babies.  Aren’t they adorable sunning themselves?  That’s why daddy told Fozziemom she couldn’t jump in and play with them.  It wouldn’t be fair, right?

You can even buy ‘feed’ for the gators and by using a fishing pole of sorts, you can feed the sweet little babies.  Mom/dad said they are so cute… mom might have mentioned wanting one but I can safely say she didn’t bring one home… at least this time.

And does this place seem familiar to you my friends?  This restaurant was also visited when our friends Bill and Jean came for a visit from Canada.  You might remember this picture of the cute little couple standing in front of their newly found friend.

    What a place! What they do with those gators when they grow big. If they eat them, please, don´t tell me.

      Oh no – they don’t eat them. They send them to local zoo’s and gator habitats. XOXO – Bacon

        Not on a bet! Besides, I’m a vegetarian and this in one of the many reasons why! 😉

    Oh yeah – we remember when you had Jean and Bill there – I’m afraid I would have had a hard time concentrating on eating lunch with those gators looking HUNGRY!

    Hugs, Sammy

      Those babies are so well fed. I think they would probably pass on humans… or piggies and kitties. In fact, there are a bunch of kitties that walk around the restaurant – so hilarious. XOXO – Bacon

        Lucky kitties – lotsa scraps fall on the floor when humans eat! HAHAHA

    How fun and interesting for the aussie contingent to see gators. They are similar but very different to our crocs and I would LOVE to pet one and hug him and call him George! 😀

    The Crab Shack is a great restaurant, just watch out for the big Gator behind us in the picture. My butt still hurts, Giggles. Bill of the Bill & Jean crew.
