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

**2016 Update--Bohicket Bistro is closed**

Another sad day in the restaurant world.

Bohicket Bistro (formerly known as Alano's) has recently closed at Bohicket Marina out on Seabrook Island.

The pizza was enjoyable.  It was The Bistro's fried oreos that I inhaled...

 And made our heart smile!

Injured Loggerhead Turtle found on Seabrook Island

Quick thinking guests on Seabrook Island alerted the island's turtle patrol of a stranded loggerhead turtle.

Poor fella must have had an encounter with a shark. He (or she) was rushed to the SC Aquarium Sea Turtle Hospital.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed he/she makes it.

The Buccaneer Restaurant in downtown Charleston closed its doors yesterday. It was a great place to take wannabe pirates.

The Buccaneer claimed to have one of the largest collections of pirate booty and other collectibles from the "Golden Age of Piracy" (1690-1730).

Here's more on the story:
