The Surfside Turtle


We are so excited about our new addition to Surfside! Bubba Daniel, (who I was lucky enough to sponsor in a Coastal Sister home) created her using a CHAINSAW of all things!

It took 2 days and lots of hard work, plus a lot of people wanting to talk with him, and she was done! The turtle is a “she” because every April-July we have mama Kemp Ridley turtles come ashore to lay their eggs on our beach.

She is now installed permanently at the main entrance and the Village is holding a contest to see who can come up with the best name for her.
What’s your choice?


Top 10 Things to do in Surfside for Mother’s Day!

1. Book your beach house! It’s only 2 weeks away!
2. Lay out on the deck or on the beach and relax.
3. Rent a kayak or jet ski. Or learn to surf!
4. Go horseback riding. It is allowed on the city beach until Memorial Day.
5. Eat at one of the local restaurants so mom doesn’t have to cook!
6. Shops at the local stores.
7. Have a drink at one of the local bars.
8. Charter a boat for a fun day.
9. Fish from the shore or the jetty.
10. Rent a golf cart and cruise up and down the beach.
No matter what you decide to do, it just important that mom is treated like the queen that she is!
