It's hard to believe that summer passed so quickly. We're finding that on Tybee the seasons aren't quite the same as in other places. There's winter, then spring break, then summer, then after summer, then fall. September and early October are "after summer," the weather is still warm and you can enjoy an afternoon on the beach, but with kids back in school the pace is a little more leisurely. It's a great time for couples or a friends' get-away at the beach.

Just like Labor Day weekend is the end of summer, Pirate's Fest weekend is the end of after-summer. This weekend we're looking forward to thousands of buccaneers, pirates, privateers and their friends and families arriving on the island. Main events will be Friday afternoon and evening and all day Saturday, in the area around the pier and South Beach, with entertainment, vendors of all sorts of treasures and great food, of course.

Lighthouse Pizza will have a booth at the festival with slices of our delicious pizza and the restaurant, right up the street, will be open with its full menu and huge selection of beer -- "grog" in pirate-speak.

See you there!
