Ahhh, the dog days of summer

Last Sunday was a glorious day to be out.

I moseyed down to the beach about noon and it could not have been more beautiful. Very few people out, and the gorgeous aqua-blue water was still and calm, almost like a lake.

I joined friends who had waded out into the cool Gulf to do some fishing and had a great time. Michele and Jack Silberman, John Stasko, Janice and Carl Fedkenheuer and their sons were there. Kevin and Mike Fedkenheuer were visiting from Virginia . It's always sweet when our babies come home. I also saw Diane Smith, Brad and Claudia Droy at the pool. Good, calm, and perfect day in paradise.

Last Tuesday night, St. Joe Company hosted a one-year anniversary party for the fabulous Pearl in Rosemary Beach and pulled out all the stops. From passed hors d'oeuvres, champagne, mojitos, music, Latin dancers, and give aways, it was a nice evening on the rooftop and below. Seen at The Pearl were Nancy Stanley, Michelle Uhlfelder, Shelby Schuler, Paul Vizard, Elaine Ashman, Mike and Angela Ragsdale, Jim Bagby, John Stasko, Bridgett Mitchell, Ed Reese, Denise Creehan, Diane Carvalho, Lanier Motes, Ivy and Chris Trovas, Scott Henderson, and former Walton County Artist of the Year Allison Craft.

Walton County Chamber's Business After Hours was held last Thursday night at Rum Runners at Baytowne. It was a hot one, but there was a big turnout. Kent and Peggy Lillie, Ann Kief, Lea and Joe Capers, Shaye Smith, Lauren Gall, Judy Harris, Pam McKinney, Nancy Stanley, Colleen Riddle, Meg Warrington, Michael McIntosh, Polli Youngbeck, Jim Bagby, Terry Jones, Kenna Cline Ledford, Lori Sweeney, Gary Bowman, Russ Noblitt, Bob Glaze, Joe Serrato, and Wanda Duke were there.

Max and Linda Banning hosted a going-away party for Ben and Pam Sibley last week at their Sandestin home. The Sibleys are moving back to Michigan , but will still vacation here in the winter. Bart and Peggy Darwin, Dwight and Judy Dudley, Nancy and Dave Edwards, Darrell Dabria, Harold and Barbara Wright, John and Lee Hensley, Lawrence and Cynthia Draper, Gayle and Jim Lockwood, Ruth Edmands, Darwin Davis, Terri Collins, Jackie Losapio, Kent and Peggy Lillie attended.
