They moved the sign telling about what's allowed on the Village Pier. Before it was to the side where no one saw it. Now it's right where you walk onto the pier. Looks nice, too!

All the shops are putting out UGA and Gator merchandise for the fans already crowding in. The restaurants are hauling in the beer. Even the County is sprucing up for the event!

Although to be fair, County Employees do a great job year-round, keeping everything looking good.


Our great restaurant closed the end of September. Sob. Oh for one of those plate-sized blueberry pancakes!

Here's a picture of Caylee with a former customer. She's still in St. Simons.

Goodbye to the old sign everyone will remember.

And this is how it looks now.

Sad. So sad.

Walking in the Village this morning I came across this truck. A 1936 or 37 Ford truck or who can be sure? Interesting what ever it is.

Postell Park

Surveying at Postell Park is the first indication of work on the renovation scheduled for later this year and early next year. If this renovation turns out like Neptune Park it should be great.

Talked to the owner of the FUN BUS tours that originate in
Ohio. She always stops at the Village Inn and Suites because it's so unique. It's quaint but large enough to house a bus full of tourists.

We wish we had a FUN BUS down in these parts!
