When people come to the beach they want local everything! Local people, local ideas, local souvenirs and local FOOD! Specifically Shrimp, Shrimp, Shrimp!
Recently, I was privileged to sit down with Pat Matthews, a Savannah/Tybee native who grew up here on the docks. Pat currently oversees Tybee’s shrimping operation, exporting into Savannah and across the country, and moving wild caught local shrimp just down the dock to some of Tybee’s favorite restaurants. Pat has been working these docks his entire life. His father and grandfather worked the same ones as well. It’s easy to tell the Matthews have been a large part of Tybee, Savannah, and shrimping. No one would have thought back in 1947, when Pat’s grandfather built the current dock, that Pat would still be over-seeing the operations today.
It is a time for mixed blessings. The heat is about to really crank up and the kids are going back to school. Let’s all get together at the bar and celebrate air conditioning and nap time! I seriously have no idea how people survived back in the day.
I cannot believe how quickly summer has flown by. It seems like just yesterday we were all wearing green and shaking our butts down Tybrisa – well, we are still shaking our butts down Tybrisa, just not wearing all green!
