Merry Christmas 2021-12-24

In this Yule season, as the sun returns after the Winter Solstice, let us be thankful that we can boat, fish, and even swim year-round here in our subtropical south Georgia and north Florida.

But even if you missed Festivus, there are still grievances to be aired.

It’s the season to burn the Yule log. I’ve got one in my fireplace right now. Well, little pieces of a naturally fallen oak tree.

Let’s be thankful for the forests, swamps, and fields that support us, the aquifers from which we all drink, and the rivers that run through.

If you still need gifts to give, a good one would be a membership in an organization that advocates for fishable, swimmable, and drinkable water, and holds frequent paddle outings and cleanups.

We also have in our WWALS online store hats, stickers, and notecards, all of which make excellent gifts.

Thanks to all of you who who have already supported WWALS this year. We hope to see you and others on an upcoming paddle outing, cleanup, at a festival, or online.

Happy Holidays!
