As a reminder, only registered users can access the photo albums. I will be posting many more photos of SoWal later tonight and later in the week. They will be in the Photo Gallery, under the album name of Smiling JOe. Some are fun and some are not so fun. On another note, thanks to all who sent your good energy this way. I certainly felt it, and it kept me safe and warm (or what that the A/C going out yesterday morning?). I appreciate being part of such a great community. Anyone wanting to buy me a beer, can simply invite any average joe whom they see in SoWal to join them for the beer. I am sure to feel it. Just keep the love going around. That is truely what makes this area what it is. Ask anyone, it is not just the beach. There is plenty of beach around this country, but it is people sharing that makes this area so fun. Keep up the good work. For everyone wanting to help clean the beaches, your help is needed. There is plenty of small debris on the beach, and thankfully, most of the big stuff is at the inlet of Oyster Lake in one big pile. I did not forge Western Lake, but the other side may have some larger debris.
