Are you that guy or gal who likes to put icecubes in your wine? Are you tired of your wine-savvy friends rolling their eyes at you for adul-terating a fine Chardonnay? Whats wrong witha cube or two in your Chablis, after all?
Whether youre the one committing this faux pasor you want to rehabilitate somebody who does,its time we all familiarize ourselves with theground rules when it comes to giving your winethe perfect chill.
The Perfect TemperatureEvery wine has an ideal temperature for serv-ing. White wines should be served at about45 degrees Fahrenheit and red wines shouldbe served at a few degrees below roomtemperature.
Adding ice to wine, while quickly reducing thetemperature, will dilute the wine and give it awatery flavor. Also, your hands are a balmy98 degrees about the temperature of a warmbath and thats why wine glasses have theirdistinct shape, so you can grasp the stemwithout heating up the wine in the glass.
If youre in a hurry to get your wine chilled, youcan always buy it chilled from most liquor storesor just pop it in the freezer for a few minutes.
Refreshment on a Hot DaySometimes an icy beverage is the best way togo, especially if youre by the pool or just try-ing to take the edge off a hot day. Do yourselfa favor and mix up a Sangria!
Get a bottle of fruit wine or really any wine ofyour choice add some Sprite, your favorite
fruit juice and those ice cubes for a great treat.If youre feeling particularly festive, add somefruit-flavored vodka or a liqueur alcohol togive it that extra kick.
There is nothing wrong with the classic winespritzer either. Just add equal parts wine, Sprite,or club soda over ice for an easy cocktail. Thisis a simple, do-it-yourself drink, if youre at aparty where wine is being served because mosthosts will (or should) also have soft drinks avail-able. A word of caution, though: If youre goingto a party where your host is serving a higher-end wine, dont insult his or her hospitality byusing a rare vintage as a mixer.
Hot Weather SuggestionsAt Island Winery, our Harvest White sweet mus-cadine wine and our Riesling are delicious whenserved frosty cold.
Chardonnay, especially oak-aged ones suchas ours, should always be served warmer, atthe recommended temperature of 45 to even50 degrees. Our Southern Passion is sangria,so it is great on its own or as the base for yourfavorite sangria recipe. For a really special twist,try adding our cranberry wine to any cocktailthat calls for cranberry juice. It also makes afabulous cranberry martini!
Stop by Island Winery at 12A Cardinal Roadfor a great selection of award-winningwines, ranging from Old World vinted drywines to Low Country Specialty wines, madeon Hilton Head Island. Store/Tasting hoursare Monday-Saturday, 12:30-5:30 p.m.,with Wine Flights & Cheese availablefrom 12:30-2:30 p.m. A Wine & CheeseHappy Hour is offered Monday-Thursdaystarting at 4 p.m. (843) 842-3141 orislandwinery.com.

Theres a pretty little legend that I would like to tell,of the birth and death of Jesus found in this lowly shell.
If you examine it closely youll see that you find here,four nail holes and a fifth one made by a Romans spear.
On one side the Easter Lily, its center is the star,that appeared unto the shepherds and led them from afar.
The Christmas poinsettia etched on the other side,reminds us of His Birthday our happy Christmastide.
Now break the center open and here you will release,the five white doves awaiting to spread good will and peace.
This simple little symbol Christ left for you and me,to help us spread the gospel through all eternity.

Dining with Kids
Adults want a delicious, relaxing meal andkids just want to have fun. With hundredsof restaurants catering to every taste andbudget, nearly all of the Islands eateriesoffer childrens menus, as well as someform of family-friendly entertainment. Makevacation mealtimes memorable for the foodand ambiance rather than monumentalmeltdowns with some helpful tips fordining with kids.
Plan AheadA little planning goes a long way, if you haveyour heart set on dining at a specific restaurant.Decide where you want to eat long before itstime to leave and call ahead to see if reserva-tions are accepted. To avoid crowds and longlines, check to see if any special events are tak-ing place in the area that evening. Remember,many restaurants offer similar lunch and dinnermenus, so you can always enjoy a mouthwa-tering midday meal at a great price.
Arrive EarlyAfter spending hours on the beach, in the wateror biking around the Island, its time for din-ner. If you head out early before everyoneis REALLY tired and cranky youll find EarlyBird specials, Happy Hour deals and, often,live music or other family fun. Dont worry,you can always move on to your next stopafter having a bite to eat and a refreshingbeverage.
Sit OutsideEscape the frigid air-conditioning and whitetable cloths inside and settle down at an out-side table for a relaxed evening of peoplewatching, catching up with friends and familyand, often, live entertainment. Many Islandeateries offer the opportunity to dine al frescooverlooking spectacular waterfront vistas,unique Lowcountry landscapes and, if yourereally lucky, a playground. An added bonus ofeating outdoors: You wont have to worry aboutspills and birds are attracted to the fallen crumbs,so youll also have a free animal show.
Provide DistractionsWhat might seem like a reasonable wait foran adult can be an unbearable eternity for ahungry child. Pack some portable snacks, afew small toys and accept crayons, if offered.If there is a wait, spend some time outsideexploring the immediate area looking forlizards, alligators, birds, dolphins and otherLowcountry critters unless there is an aquar-ium or lobster tank inside. Please keep in mind,small toys make excellent projectiles andcrayons will melt if left in a hot car.
Order Take-OutWhen all else fails, its time to place an orderto go. Call your favorite restaurant and enjoy ameal at a local park, the beach, a playground,in your hotel room or on the deck at your ren-tal home or villa. Relax, youre on vacation!

As we celebrate Independence Day this month,lets not forget one of the unalienable rightsdiscussed in the Declaration of Independence:The pursuit of happiness!
For many of you, that pursuit may includeowning property on the Island one day. Afterall, the relaxing yet active atmosphere iscertainly conducive to a happy lifestyle. Whetheryou are looking for a primary residence, sec-ond home or investment property, our marketis primed for buyers to succeed!
WHY HILTON HEAD ISLAND?Well, for one thing, just take a look around you.Our 12 miles of sandy beaches, moderateclimate, abundant wildlife and in-keeping-with-nature architecture truly make Hilton Head Islanda special place. The active lifestyle here includeseverything from walking on the beach, biking,water sports, fishing, boating, tennis and golf.
In addition, as other areas just get more andmore commercialized, Hilton Head Island willalways retain some of its natural charm, due toregulations put in place years ago.
MARKET UPDATEYear-to-date, our market is showing increasedsales over the year prior, although sales pricesand overall inventory have decreased slightly.As of this magazine going to print, we are see-ing interest rates below 5%.
There are also two new loan products that areproving popular for buyers.
Fannie Mae HOMEPATH properties allow for putting little money down, no mandatoryappraisal, plus incentives, such as up to3.5% buyer assistance. For properties requiringrepairs, HOMEPATH has a renovation loanoption, as well.
The Palmetto Heroes Loan Program is targetedat law enforcement officers, teachers, firefight-ers, veterans, nurses and EMS personnel thatreside in South Carolina. It offers low interesthome loans to current first time buyers, as wellas a down payment assistance program of upto $5,000.
WHY NOW?Low prices combined with a drop in interestrates and a decreasing inventory means nowis a perfect time to buy.
If retirement to the Island is still a distant dream,second home ownership provides an opportu-nity to enjoy your home now, while renting itout during your absence to offset expenses.
You can always find a reason to put off makinga decision. But, if you have fallen in love withthe Island as I have and want to create morelasting memories here, then dont hesitatebecause there may never be a better time tobuy.

Horoscope July 2011Aries Things should be looking up foryou in all areas as the month begins. Now
would be a good time to make special requestsand to present novel ideas to people who haveturned a deaf ear to your projects in the past. Inthe romantic portion of your life, this may proveto be one of the most exciting and thrillingperiods you have witnessed in some time.
Taurus You may run up against somedifficult problems as the month begins,
but by using patience and a good deal ofintestinal fortitude, you can achieve goals youhad not even thought of in the past. Officeroutine may tend to get you down in the earlypart of the month, but the load should lighten inthe near future. Give a child or elder a helpinghand.
Gemini If you feel that someone haswronged you or been unfair in some
romantic or business deal, do not suffer in silence,but air your grievances, as long as you do so per-sonally and to the offending party. A party or othersocial gathering now could do much to raise yourspirits. Be careful of possessions in a crowdedplace. You may expect an important letter.
Cancer Do not let the poor attitudes ofothers cause you to become involved in
office intrigue or other forms of backbiting. Makesure you give sufficient effort for your pay anddo not give those in authority reason to doubtyour loyalty. Your love life could become richer ifyou would display more kindness in dealing withsubordinates. Avoid unnecessary socializing.
Leo Efforts on your part to aid yourcommunity or to participate in charitable
work could backfire, if it seems to others thatyou are only doing it for the glory. You would bebetter off to drop out altogether if this is yourreason for action. Concentrate on career orwork plans and make sure you complete anypreviously postponed projects. Romance couldblossom, if you will let it.
Virgo Your love life could take an unex-pected turn, as a former friend becomes
more than that in an unusual situation. Dontdismiss such ideas out of hand. You might findthat you like it. Career improvement is a definitepossibility, if you dont overdo it with unrealisticpay demands. Investment in a home or othermajor purchase would be wise, if caution is used.
Libra A new love could enter your life ina rather novel manner and your own
reaction could surprise you. A good chance atpromotion or pay increase could be spoiled, if youlet your normal bent for sarcasm come to the fore.Increase your abilities and your pay potential bytaking a night course or some other form of formaleducation. Avoid travel by water, if possible.
Scorpio The green-eyed monster, nor-mally one of your biggest foes, could
prove to be right for a change. It will be up toyou to do some self-examination to find outwhy a heart may be straying. Whatever you do,avoid unbridled confrontations and making accu-sations. This will only drive you into a corner.Patience and forgiveness will work much betterthan harsh words.
Sagittarius Someone very close toyou could be planning a big surprise for
you that could prove shocking. The final resultwill not prove unpleasant, however, so spendyour time planning ways in which you canrepay your benefactor. Office gossip can besquelched by actions much more than by words.Health problems should be seen to promptly.
Capricorn You could be hard pressedat this point to give up ideals for immedi-
ate gains, but the best advice to follow would bethat of the straight and narrow. A possible promo-tion in your career area could be forthcoming, butit might require more effort than you are willingto put forth. Make sure that a letter to a superioris worded so as not to cause unpleasantness.
Aquarius A social occasion could bea good time to bring up an important
business matter, but dont make it seem tooobvious. Romantic attachment to an old flamecould cause problems with a present mate orlove interest. Remember that there wassomething which made the flame an old oneand dont be too anxious to renew a situationwhich could prove dangerous.
Pisces Your powers of persuasion andyour ability to make others see pie in the
sky could backfire on you if you use them forunwholesome ends. The best advice here is tohonor past commitments and dont try to talkyour way out of a tight situation. Health problemsmay not be as bad as imagined, but should notbe ignored. Gain the confidence of one higher up.

Dont overestimate your swim-ming ability. Stay in chest deep or less water to insure you dont

FIREWORKSDOLPHIN WATCH CRUISE
In the summer, dozensof female loggerheadsea turtles drag themselvesonto local beaches, crawlabove the high tide line anddig a nest. After laying morethan a 100 eggs, these300-pound reptiles maketheir way slowly back to theocean.
Following a 60-day incuba-tion period, the hatchlingswait for nightfall and thenrace towards the water,using the moon and starsas a guide.
Extremely sensitive tolight and movement,the females will turn
around without nesting if disturbedwhile on the beach. On the other hand,
baby turtles are attracted to light and willhead towards the source rather than theocean.
To protect this threatened species, bothHilton Head Island and Beaufort Countyhave Lights Out For Turtles ordinances.
From May 1 through October 31, no lightstronger than 60 watts may be visible on thebeach from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. It is a federaloffense to harass sea turtles or disturb theirnests.

By Capt. Patte Ranney, SC Master Naturalist,Outside Hilton Head
A saltmarsh is said to produce nearly 10 timesthe bio-mass (read: Food) of the most fertileagricultural soils. It is for this reason that thediversity of animal life in the saltmarsh is so great.
At any given time high tide or low tide, duskor dawn, mid-tide or midday you can observeLowcountry wildlife searching for food.
Perhaps the most spectacular display of feedingis provided by the dolphin.
Atlantic bottlenose dolphin are always in search offood. Measuring around 9 feet in length, andweighing 300 to 400 pounds, it is said that onemature dolphin consumes about 50 poundsof fish a day. Its hard to imagine 50 poundsof fish. Think in terms of quarter-pound ham-burgers about 200 of them!
Most often, dolphin feed communally. Severaldistinctive feeding behaviors can be observedin our area.
One method is referred to as tail slapping.Done to group and stun the quarry, dolphin willslap their tails on the surface of the water andcomplete the maneuver with a sweeping flour-ish to direct the now stunned fish in the directionof eager mouths.
Another method is referred to as circle orbubble feeding. A pod of dolphin will swim ina circular formation several feet below the sur-face of the water while blowing air from theirblow-holes. Capturing the bait fish within thecircle, individual dolphin will swim throughthe bait with open mouths.
Unique to our area actually a 100-milestretch of Atlantic coastline from Charlestonto Jacksonville is the behavior called strand
feeding. It is only here, in the Lowcountry, wheredolphin strand feed. No other place in the world!
A behavior passed from generation to gener-ation of resident dolphin (the ones that stayhere year-round), the pod will isolate a schoolof fish between their bodies and the muddyor sandy shoreline. With a glorious burst ofenergy, the dolphin force the fish, then theirown bodies up onto the shore water splash-ing fish flailing opportunist herons andgulls flocking in then, while laying on theirright sides, the dolphin enjoy their buffet.
Shortly thereafter, the stranded dolphin willshimmy, tail first, back into the creek. Or, theywill squirm around on the mud and return tothe water head-first. Sometimes they strandnumerous times before moving on. I haveseen a group strand eight times in a row.
Federally protected, it is unlawful to feed orattract dolphin to your boat or kayak. Respectfullyobserve these wonderful animals from a safedistance. Allow them to remain wild by notinteracting with them. Their natural antics willcharm and amaze you.
For over 30 years, Outside Hilton Headhas provided personalized adventures forall ages, from kayak, fishing, nature anddolphin tours to kids camps, history excur-sions, family outings and stand-up paddleboarding.

Photosynthesis is also a key part inthe illumination process of theDinoflagellate...
By Master Naturalist Kathleen McMenamin, H2O Sports
Have you seen the ocean glow at night?Have you possibly been on a boat and seenthe wake glow as you pass through?
These little creatures that light up the night areimproperly identified as Phosphorescents, butthey are really Bioluminescent Dinoflagellates,a type of marine plankton.
Plankton are free-floating ocean drifters,which can be plants, animals or bacteria. TheDinoflagellates use sunlight in the same waythat land plants photosynthesize, in order toproduce food for themselves. Photosynthesisis also a key part in the illumination processof the Dinoflagellate and the term biolumi-nescence means the creation of light by aliving organism.
As the waters in our South Carolina summerbecome warmer, these Dinoflagellates repro-duce and increase in number.
This plankton is a very valuable food sourcefor oceanic filter feeders and even other typesof plankton. Small fish, aquatic larvae andsmall crustaceans need these Dinoflagellatesto survive. Through the food chain, they areimportant in nourishing all of the fish, shellfishand mammals in our oceans.
Not only are Dinoflagellates important for ourfood chain and pretty to look at, they also playa very important role in creating oxygen for ourEarth. Since they are plants that photosynthe-size, they take water and carbon dioxide tocreate food for themselves. As a byproduct oftheir food creation, they release oxygen intothe air and into the water.
The Bioluminescent Dinoflagellates use theirglow as a form of protection.
They can feel vibrations in the water as preda-tors come near them. As a response, theylight up in order to attract larger secondarypredators towards the primary creature coming
to eat them. The illumination can draw atten-tion to larger predators from a great distancein the water, thus scaring the primary predatoraway from the Dinoflagellates.
Although we as humans are not predators to theDinoflagellates, we disturb the water aroundthem, which makes them illuminate. Anothercommon place to see the Dinoflagellates is inthe crashing waves at night. As the little plank-ton are washed ashore, they are definitely beingdisturbed, which creates the glowing surf.
Their glow is strongest after several hours ofdarkness. As the sun is setting, you will still beable to see them but they will not be as bright.As the night wears into the early morning, theirglow also becomes more dim. They are able torecharge once the sun rises and the new daybegins. The light emitted by a Dinoflagellatecan last for 0.1 to 0.5 seconds.
There are many different types of biolumines-cent creatures in the ocean.
Some examples on our Atlantic coast are bio-luminescent comb jellyfish, angler fish andcertain types of shrimp. The light emitted bythese creatures is created by a chemical reac-tion. This reaction is energy being released bythe organism. Every living cell creates someform of bioluminescence, however, most ofthese illuminations cannot be seen by thenaked eye. Ever hear of a persons aura? Theseilluminations can be in many different colors;sea creatures bioluminescence is generallywithin the spectrum of greens, blues and reds.

July is often referred to as the dog daysof summer, but a better name might befish days of summer.
Hot weather is the rule throughout theSouth and Hilton Head Island is noexception. But with heat comes warmerwater and the fishing heats up, as well.
The inshore waters close to Hilton HeadIsland are especially abundant with Redfish,Jack Crevalle, large and small sharks andmore.
The mighty Tarpon will make his appearancein July, arriving when the water temperatureis in the eighties.
The nearshore rips, reefs and live bottomsare teaming with Spanish and KingMackerel and Bluefish. Offshore, it's agreat time to find dolphin (Mahi Mahi),Sailfish, Wahoo and perhaps a Marlin.
Elaborate fishing rigs are not required tocatch many of the fish in our area. Trolling
spoons on a lead or planer is one the mostproductive methods to make the catch.
The mornings are usually calm with acooling sea breeze kicking up in theafternoons. And when the fishing is thishot, who minds a little extra heat?
The experts at Blue Water Tackleshop inSouth Beach Marina have a full char-ter fleet with experienced captainswho know where the fish are. SouthBeach Marina is the closest marina tothe ocean, which means more fishing& less traveling! (843) 671-3060 orbluewaterhhi.com.

Hitting a golf ball straight is difficult enoughfrom a flat lie. When you and the ball are sud-denly on different levels, it becomes even harder.
Facing an uphill lie, downhill lie or sidehill lie isdaunting, but like many situations in golf, it canbe handled well with an appraisal of the physicalsituation and proper compensation for it.
When golfers are faced with a downhill lie, theyfind the ball below the plane of their feet.
Because the toe of your club is going to be lowerthan the heel, the sidespin you impart to the ballwill push it in the opposite direction, causing afade instead of a hook. Therefore, you must alignyourself not right of the target, but left of it.
On a downhill lie, your weight falls forwardtoward your toes. Keeping this in mind, take yourpractice swings with the goal of centering yourbalance again through your thighs and over thearches of your feet. A good way to remember thisis to focus your weight under your shoestrings.
Just as when facing an uphill lie, take some extraclub in this situation. In fact, on a downhill lie itis even more important to compensate for likelylost distance, since reaching down for the ballwhen swinging is more difficult than reachingup toward it.
When the ball is above your feet, your swingplane naturally becomes flatter, making yourgolf stroke more like a baseball swing, which
is why most golfers fare better with uphill liesthan downhill lies.
Downhill lies result in more shanks and pop-upsthan uphill lies because your body instinctivelywants to straighten up, and the more it does so,the more lower-body strength is inadvertentlyremoved from the swing.
No matter what the situation, it is always moreeffective to take more club and swing withinyourself than to take less club and increase thechances of swinging out of control.
To help develop the right feel for a downhill-lieswing, try the following drill:
Stand at one end of a swimming pool with theballs of your feet past the edge. Swing your 5-iron and try to skim the water. With your weightcorrectly distributed, youll be able to swing fromthis position without consequence. If you leantoo far forward, however, youll learn your lessonin a hurry.
