Tybee Island – mom/dad’s home away from home. They LOVE that beach. They have been going to Tybee for years now and it just feels natural to be there partaking and having fun with all things beach. They’ve met so many people over the years. Hopefully one day when they retire to the good life, they want to spend their senior moments at the beach walking hand to hand causing havoc (you gotta know mom/dad and the trouble they get into at places unchaperoned – snorts).
This is actually the beach they are planning on visiting later on in the month – without moi might I add. One day hopefully soon, I will get to put my hooves into the ocean as well and see what it’s all about. But I digress. This post is not about me but about Pirate Fest at Tybee Island, Georgia.
The Tybee Island Pirate Fest started in 2005 and has been going strong every year. This year it is scheduled October 10-13th, 2013. It is so cool! There’s going to be a parade of pirate ships and pirates that will go down Butler Street to the beach. And, there is the thieves market where you can shop to your hearts content for everything pirate. AND to start everything off there’s even a Buccaneer Ball at a wonderful restaurant called The Crab Shack (which mom/dad highly recommend). Fun, food and costume contests all with the crowning of the 2013 King and Queen to kick off the swashbuckling weekend.

Here’s also a flyer of the good time. I sent them my pirate picture… you know just to let them know that I’m all about being a Pirate. Heck, you can call me Captain Bacon 🙂
