Seabrook Island Turtle Patrol

When I grow up, I want to be on the Seabrook Island Turtle Patrol!

2010  has turned out to be a record breaking turtle year out on Seabrook.  68 turtle nests were found!

The Seabrook Island Turtle Patrol recently uploaded a slide show of the 2010 turtle season. There's no peppy music just lots of photos of people, nests, and turtle hatchlings. 

If you don't have 9 minutes to watch the slide show, just skip to the 7:00 minute mark--the photo of *my* first turtle nest find(because I'm not an officially trained turtle person, I could only stand by and watch).

Restaurants-Another Closure

Bad news!  If you love partaking in Charleston's delicious locally caught grouper, black sea bass, red porgy and/or red snapper, you're out of luck.  As of January 1, 2010, the US Government closed fishing of these species for at least four to six months.

Local fishermen are being forced to change their fishing habits like the tide.  And, we, diners, will have to change our tastes. 

Anyone for  triggerfish, king mackerel or amberjack?
