August in the southeast is a time to allow for liberal doses of indoor hibernation. Days go by in the 90s without a weather forecaster's comment about a heat wave....of course it's a heat wave...what's to discuss!??? It's is the obverse of winter time snow and ice up north. Even its worst, though, there is still nothing to shovel, nor any reason to be housebound. No...get in your car and drive to the mall...always 72ish, and comfortable. Boring as it is, at least you can walk around.
This past weekend I visited Savannah with some friends to see a photography exhibit at SCAD. It was a retrospective of the regional photographer, Jack Leigh. Beautiful work shown in an exquisite city that can charm the feathers from a peacock! The next day, I drove to Jekyll Island to revisit driftwood beach. The weather was witheringly hot and humid, but I did the best I could nonetheless. Here are two from that visit.
