This time at St George Island, FL. I thought I was going on vacation. I did have a marvelously relaxing weekend. Sunday at the beach, my husband verbalized what I had been pondering : there was something different about St George Island. I at first compared it to Tybee c. 1983- sort of deserted, old beach houses. As we ran into other vacationers I began to wonder if it was my imagination or if the people were friendlier. Everyone spoke, and exchanged 'where are you from' s. They were all from Atlanta! The last day we were there, I had groups on the beach on either side of me. Both groups were from Fayetteville and Peachtree City, and they were unaquainted with each other. [note on cart- 'PEACHTREE CITY' did not show up in photo-too bright]
On Sat. we went up to Tallahassee on a long planned college trip for the oldest to see a SCAD represenative. When that was over we went to the Governor's ?Square? Mall. Georgia Retail Memories, I'm sorry I didn't take my camera; as many of its patrons are from So GA, it could have been squeezed in on a technicality. Near the mall is the oldest Publix sign I've ever seen. The food selection back at the mall was typical; I am having dental work and can't eat Chic-Fil-A like a good southsider although my kiddos happily indulged-so the 'grown ups' totally stumbled into the most delicious, fresh, well prepared "Mediterranean Food' I've had since our local International Festival, at the Food Court. I had tabouleh, and my husband had the hummas. Our tab was well under $10.
Here is an invitation to the 50th Anniversary Celebration at Fayette Presbyterian Church. It used to be located on GA 85 at New Hope Road, now it is on 92 Hwy, up north of White Road. The planners have done an excellent job and put several years of hard work into this celebration. It would be a great way for any southsider to spend a Sunday. Some former and current members include: Lamar Dodd, former MD Collins principal, Melanie Mickleboro, the art teacher at Fayette County High and the designer of this logo, Bob Morris, whose father had a grocery, and later a wholesale grocery concern in the West End area for years, and many more. Hope to see you all there.
