I’m heading down to Amelia Island today with a few law school buddies – a sort of summer practice for the Cocktail Party, if you will – so posting will be light until I get back late Sunday.
Behave, you scamps.

I hope no one suffers any season injuries during summer practice. Going full contact or just shorts and helmets?
that should read, “season ending” up there.
Do you ever get up to Sapelo I. on visits? Don’t want to see it if it has been realty-plundered, but will always remember finding perfectly paired “angel wings” clam shells about 6″ in length strewn on the beach, night herons in a pond and whip-o-wills at night, sitting on a road next to the beach such that you could stand next to them and they wouldn’t take flight(They never knew a predator level or fear of anything).
Practice hard for the WLOCP. You probably will need it.
I think Sapelo is pretty much preserved by the state. Cumberland is a National Seashore and is unbeliveably beautiful and mostly pristine.
It originally was to go to the state and is where UGA’s Marine Ecology studies are done. Long ago it could only be occupied by descendents of the RJ Reynolds family when they first were turning it over to the state. Hadn’t heard anything since and I thank you for the update. I assumed the worst and didn’t want to face that reality of commercialization of such an ecological wonder. Maybe my grandchildren will get a chance to visit and study.
Saw it happen to Sanibel I off the West Gulf next to Ft Myers .I’m grateful to have seen it before it was raped.
There are still a handful of private property owners in addition to a good number of indigenous Gullah people that live on the island. I was college buddies with a guy whose parents owned a house on the island. Got to spend a week down there and had a local Gullah fellow who showed us all of the cool spots. It was a great trip. I think of it often.
Gone but not forgotten…as long as we have memories and pictures. There’s always plenty of good weed in coastal areas. Smoke em if you got em.
Easy on the brownies before driving back through Athens!
+1. Expect to be tested upon your return. Positive results will incur a one-week blog suspension beginning the day of the Clemson game.
Have fun, Senator! Try “The Surf” over on the beach!!
Having just driven through Camden County I-95 hot zone, do not seek the treasure of speeding because it’s open season even more so than usual. Saw many fellow drivers (at least a half-dozen each way) getting submarined around Kingsland at night (June 20 and June 25). Hadn’t seen that many patrol cars lined up all pretty and straight since FHP stakeouts at south end of Florida Turnpike when everybody has built up a good head of steam hauling ass to the Keys.
I see the Ludowici speed trap has moved to the southeast…
I went to St. Simon’s Island last weekend and saw the same. Speed-trap central on I-95.
Hey everyone: Happy Last Day of Michael F. Adams’s Tenure!
Thought we’d never get rid of him. Please excuse the pronunciation pun.
Smoke’em if you got’em.
How ceremonies for The Departed MFA would have gone had he been in the DPRK
We’re headed to the beach here on the left coast too. It’s gonna be 108 in Nashville West this weekend. Oly five more weeks until August and the first month of football season…
Nice to see Vandy keeping up the momentum of their best season since 1915 with a strong entry into the Fulmer Cup race.
Notice that Vandy waited until The Senator departed before they mentioned the local investigation and dismissal. Bluto, if you see 4 guys with Vandy shirts playing aimlessly on the beach; interview them. No one else is releasing info.
Let’s play the Academic quality game. According to Forbes Magazine, UGA #125, Tech #135. http://www.forbes.com/top-colleges/list/#page:2_sort:0_direction:asc_search:_filter:All%20states
