CommentsI tend the gardens at this property and noted the almost regularly spaced placement of the mostly empty snail shells; this was just after a 3 day cold snap and I wondered if that made the snails more vulnerable to predation; one week later I returned and found more shells, and a Great Blue Heron working the wall. On top of the sea wall on the west side of the point, over about a 300' length 79 West View Way, (Great Waters), Eatonton, GA
