The Salty Dog

You just cannot vacation at HHI without a trip to The Salty Dog!


It was a gorgeous Lowcountry where you instantly have sweat dripping down your back as soon as you step out into the heat!

We chose to eat outside at The Salty Dog Cafe despite the heat!

Our food was delicious! AND...all three kids chose fruit instead of fries...on their own!
Salty Dog Lunch

We only had one slight mishap!

Salty Dog Rainbow

Jackson, "on an accident" according to him, kicked one of his Rainbow's off the dock area where we were sitting!
Check out his sneaky face...

After lunch we let the kids do their own Salty Dog Tie Dye shirt!

They could choose the design...diamond, spiral or bull's eye. Emma chose bull's eye and both boys chose the spiral. The staff actually wound the shirt up and placed the rubber bands in the correct places for the designs. Then the shirts soaked in a solution which helps hold the color for 10 minutes.

Emma was called first.
She chose 4 colors...turquoise, lime, pink and plum.

Next up was Jackson and then Brendan.

After all the dye was applied, they secure the wet shirts in plastic bags with directions on how to process them. We had three happy and anxious minis walking away swinging their plastic bags.

After the shirts, we went to the Ice Cream Shop...

They had to eat quickly. Even though all three got their ice cream in a cup, it was almost instantly turning into soup.

One quick trip for me up to here... The Salty Dog T-Shirt Factory, and we were heading back for an afternoon on the beach!

It was a great time!

We let the shirts soak for 24 hours before washing. This is the best shot I could get of all three wearing their new shirts! They turned out fantastic!

Love SD, we were just there. And we ate outdoors too. I'm always happy when fruit is chosen over french fries! :)
Love those shirts!
