    This evening, west bound traffic on 30A was backed up almost all the way from Seaside to Cassine Gardens. I cannot believe that NatureWalk will be allowed to add more traffic to the future Beach Club. I think Seaside might have surpassed July 4 weekend crowds this week. All indicators show that this year will be extremely busy for SoWal vacationers.

    Atlanta Spring Break is the event. These people on the lawn are there for the free Tuesday night concert. One would think Sheryl Crowe was playing, but she wasn't.

    That's just crazy!

    We've had to get into Seaside early and leave late past few days...and if it rains this week, all our Georgia friends will be in Fired Up!

    Although the crowds are really driving me crazy this year, I keep reminding myself that in that crowd are the people renting our house this week, which allows us to pay for the hurricane insurance and property taxes!

    The spring crowds do seem to be larger and louder this year for some reason.

    I have a daily panic attack driving into Seaside to work lately. All the meandering pedestrians and bicyclists make me a nervous wreck. I think brain function stops for some when they're on vacation.

    I should have added "Not anyone here one sowal.com, though." ;-)
    And I'm just jealous that I'm working and can't let my brain shut down.

    This is so true...in fact, I think I spotted our renters in that pic! ;-) This is turning out to be a strong rental season for us for both Spring and Summer.

    Silly girl, these two things are not necessarily mutually exclusive.

    Holy Cow! It was only half as busy as that last Tuesday when we cycled over to listen to Jones & Company. Those people are packed in like sardines. Last week there was enough room on the lawn for a whole bunch of kids (and a few adults ;-) ) to make a congo line. It was the most adorable thing you ever saw. I don't think that happened last night!
