A Day Off

I took today off to regroup–gather my thoughts.  No, there’s nothing wrong.  Life is good in general.

Sometimes I worry about repeating myself.  There’s the quality/quantity issue.  After almost five years of this, there have been a lot of posts.

The Shakespearian adage, “There’s nothing new under the sun,” applies.  That’s why, of late, I’ve done some updates on old posts.

In the local area, the new amusement park is shaping up.  Many of the new rides are visible.  What will this do for local traffic?  …The local economy?  The jury is still out.

“Wahlburgers” was announced today in a press conference, as the first tenant.  The first and only “Wahlburgers” franchise in the state.  More announcements are forthcoming.

From the Ashes

Formerly know as Blue Collar Country, the development consortium couldn’t pull the string.  The property sat idle, while weeds grew for several years.  Which was just as well, because, something bigger and better came along.

From the ashes came OWA, a family recreational complex going up in front of my eyes.  OWA, is a Native American word meaning “big water.”  The big water is a 14 acre lake in the center of the development with bridges leading to main attractions.

Sponsored by the Poarch Creek band of Creek Nation, Phase I of the complex is scheduled to open on or before Memorial Day.  Seven days a week, weather permitting, work goes on.  Some of the rides–which will total 21, can already be seen.
