What better way to round-out a perfect weekend than to take a boat to dinner…

Going to Clarke's Going to Clarke's

This is Clarke’s Fish Camp on Julington Creek. It’s one of our favorite places to go for seafood.

And judging from the number of boats here already, we’re not the only one’s who enjoy this secluded hideaway…

Inside the restaurant, there’s stuffed animals EVERYWHERE! Lions, Tigers, Bears, Zebras, Apes, and this Giraffe right over our table…

As always, the dinner was great! Adam commented that he was “so heavy” because he ate so much (that kid can put away some shrimp!). So, now we leave Clarke’s and head back up Julington Creek…

It’s still early in the evening, we have a pretty good amount of daylight left and the boys aren’t quite ready to go home…

It just doesn’t get any better than this!

This year we took to the boat for our annual family Christmas pictures. We docked on Julington Creek, set-up the camera, then set the timer…again and again. As always there’s one or two good ones in the bunch. Don’t know if these will make the final cut (that’s Cindy’s job), but you get the picture (pun intended)…

Family Boat

…and outside the boat…

Getting a good picture of the boys and Charlie is a lot like herding cats…

Family Boat

We spent about 30-minutes taking pictures. In between Cindy’s arranging the boys, the dog, and the boat, I snapped the scenery…

When the pictures were done, we headed back to the marina. The sun was getting low in the sky, so we took our time. The boys napped under the watchful eyes of their best friend…

Today, the Scout Master and I took some of the Den 1 boys (our kids) out on the river to work on one of their Tiger elective adventures: Floats and Boats. This is a great way for Tigers to learn about different types of boats and how to stay safe on the water.

And they were PUMPED!

Scouts

We headed-up Julington Creek and docked the boat at a friendly dock for our “scout time”…

We had several items we wanted to check-off today and the boys were pretty well engaged. It’s fun to be outside with the boys doing something new. As part of today’s adventure, the boys…

  • Demonstrated they could correctly put on and fasten a life jacket;
  • Identified five different types of boats;
  • Learned the S-C-O-U-T water safety chant;
  • Showed how to safely help someone who needs assistance in the water, without having to enter the water; and
  • Built a boat from recycled materials to float on the water.

And with our work done, we just enjoyed the rest of the morning on the water…

Today, Cindy and the boys are playing at Julington Creek Plantation Park…

Alex enjoys the refreshing water and pushes up the incline.

Alex wades in the pool

Adam is the master of the water-slide: Whoosh!

Alam takes the slide

Alex contemplates the water-slide while striking the classic Ed Sullivan pose:

“And now…right here on our shoo…Betty the Dancing Bear and the Parrot Jugglers of Guadalajara…”
