Lunch, food, ok, nothing spectacular. The atmosphere is the name of the game here. Inside decorated with metal walls (I can verify that magnets DO stick to said wall), outside deck seating if it is warm enough (was not this day, abundant sunshine, but, that cold wind kept us inside). They also have an observation deck, which we had to visit, so, I pulled on my hoodie, and up we went. OK, they got FAB views!
One view from the observation deck.
We then went over to the gift shop, every good tourist trap needs one, don't cha know! Spied this guy, sitting in the sand, not sure why, but, I though he was photogenic.
Inside the shop we found a pet parakeet, who was not terribly cooperative about photos! LOL With a name like Tacky Jack's you know a lot of the stock, is, well, tacky. But, not this fabulous kite. It was the last one, not for sale, permission granted to take all the photos we wanted. It was hanging from the ceiling, and presented it's own challanges to get a good photo. All hand painted, kite?? Nahhh, piece of art!
Later we strolled around outside some more, guess you could say we were playing at being a tourist. With all this water, there are boats stored everywhere, some are just now getting put back in the water, but, many are still in dry dock. Cannot recall seeing one like this, isn't that hull painting amazing?? Gotta wonder, what that looks like when she is in the water.
Our walk at Gulf State Park will be the subject of another post here at Reflections in the coming days.
