The Storm at Grayton Beach

Uncle Blue Colvin was up from the bay country last week and gave us a graphic description of the scene at Grayton Beach during the storm. He staid in his house until the waves began washing in the front door when he opened the doors and windows and bid it a fond farewell. Thursday morning the water was up under Leslie Miller’s house but soon began to recede. Oyster lake now empties into the Gulf west of the hotel, the big hills between the Redfish lakes are washed down, and the whole appearance of the beach is changed.
