The weekend after next is the annual Georgia Coast Birding & Nature Festival, right here on Jekyll Island. If you like nature (and if you’re reading this you probably do!) and have been waiting for a good reason to visit the Golden Isles, this is it. As an added bonus, yours truly will be leading one of the beach ecology walks for families on Saturday afternoon. That’s right, I’m leading a nature walk for a big annual nature festival! Woo!
Also, Slugyard recently posted a link to a truly incredible animation illustrating the relative sizes of pretty much everything in the universe, from quantum foam and superstrings up to, well, the known universe. Go check it out, because it will blow your mind. I promise.
