Today we planned an early morning kayaking expedition near Pinckney Island. Pete and I have never kayaked before so it was a learning experience for both of us. I chose a double kayak for us so in case I got pooped out I could stop paddling and make Pete do all the work. Smart eh?
|This was our skills course as we navigated the grassy areas.|
|Look at that form!|
|It was amazingly peaceful. We were the only ones out on the water and it was breathtaking.|

After a morning workout we found one of those "dives" like you would see on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. Well this one I found on trip advisor and asked our kayaking guide where to eat and he suggested this place - The Sea Shack.
|They say it's where the locals go so it must be good.|
|Here I discovered sweet tea is gross. It's cold tea with TONS of sugar in it.|
|Yummm, my scallop Po' boy with fries, coleslaw and 2 hush puppies.|
|And Pete's Shack Attack - crab cake, scallops, tillapia, shrimp and oysters. I tried oysters for the first time - icky!! Not again.|
|After our HUGE lunch we went to the beach and for a pool side snooze. That green roof is our hotel.|
|I had the She-Crab soup. A little spicy but oh so good.|
|Pete ordered the Echilada del Mar|
We took a quick walk on the beach since it was getting dark but here are a few quick pics.
