They'rrrre Back...

But how long will they stay? Right whales, a near extinct whale, have been making the Charleston area their winter home for the past several years.

Several recent articles in Charleston's Post & Courier newspaper tell the story of the "tumultuous" waters these whales are swimming into. To read about these magnificent creatures and their plight, click here and here.

Restaurant reminder-Stono Farm Market

How many times have you passed by Stono Farm Market (842 Main Road, Johns Island) on your way to Seabrook Island or Kiawah?

I've been known to zip right by it too. On one occasion where I did stop, I found the most delicious ravioli! Turns out these delectable little morsels are handmade by Brian Bertolini and are served at over 60 of Charleston's finest restaurants. Bring your cooler and load it up with Rio Bertolini's Handmade Pasta.

For those who want to do more than "grab and go" at the Stono Farm Market, pull up a chair and have a meal at the Tomato Shed Cafe. Lunch, consisting of in season produce, is served Monday-Saturday 11AM-2:30PM.

Even better, I discovered Tomato Shed Cafe can prepare holiday meal! Great! This gets you out of the kitchen and enjoying the company of your friends and family.
