Martin Luther King, Jr. – Inauguration – Blizzard Conditions

Thursday, January 15th, 2009

That’s what we call three good reasons to come to the beach this coming weekend!

We have a federally mandated three-day weekend to celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., so why not head south and take advantage of an extra day! We have the inauguration of a new president of the United States, Barack Obama, on Tuesday, January 20th, and millions will be crowding into Washington, D. C. Lastly, we have record blizzard conditions affecting much of the nation and it’s time for a little warm weather, white sand, and aquamarine waters.

Come on down!

Full Moon, Blue Skies, Championship Horses and Homeowners

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

We are experiencing our first taste of fall today and it feels great – temperatures in the low 70’s this morning and only into the 80’s this afternoon. We’ll take all of this weather we can get and enjoy the beautiful blue skies and the Gulf regaining its normal aquamarine color after being rouged up by Hurricane Ike last week. If you’re curious about beach erosion, we seemed to lose some sand one day and regain more than we lost several days later. That’s the kind of erosion we like!

Our thoughts go out to all those people suffering along the Louisiana and Texas Gulf coasts.

Our homeowner, Jan Pittman, is a champion in so many ways but she is truly an equestrian champion this year. In the past month she has won 3 of the largest horse shows in the world – the Reichert Invitational in Tulsa, the NSBS World Show in Tulsa and The AQHA World in Amarillo. Last week Jan achieved the “grand slam” and won the open non-pro 3-year-old Western Pleasure division at the All-American Quarter Horse Congress in Columbus, Ohio – the largest horse show in the world. Congratulations to you, Jan, and your mare “Ona Good Impulse!” To look at a video of Jan and her horse, click on this link.

Happy Labor Day!

Just Another Day In Paradise

Happy Labor Day! And, as its happens, I am working today… an effort to deliver an update of the effect of Hurricane Gustav on our community. We were fortunate to have moved “outside the cone” yesterday and have only felt small effects of the storm thus far – blustery winds, blowing sands and angry waves. We have had no rain.

The Eastern edge of Hurricane Gustav

High tide is at noon today and, hopefully, that will indicate to us the worst we can expect from Gustav. Each owner of a property in our community names their home. Some seemed especially appropriate today – “Prince of Tides” and “Just Another Day in Paradise.”

Many evacuees are seeking temporary shelter in our community and we wish them well!

Summer Splash Cancellation

Friday, August 29th, 2008

The Summer Splash event has been cancelled due to the possibility of imclimate weather over the Labor Day Weekend. We will be planning another event in lieu of the Summer Splash and will keep you posted when a decision is made regarding the new event.

As a sideline, we are excited to announce the opening of The Pottery Bar at 108 Market Street. It is a paint-your-own-pottery store. Come on in, meet the owner, Kathleen McNulty, and have a fun experience painting a piece of pottery for a special event or a decorative accessory. The article will be fired and ready to be picked up before you know it. The shop faces Market Street on the north side and opens to Lake Carillon on the south side – you can paint and enjoy a great view.
