    Looking for a funway to spend anevening withfamily or friends?

    Whether you arerenting a beachhouse with a groupof people or needan excuse to throwa party, home winetastings are fun,easy and econom-ical. You can easilyturn your summerbarbeque into anexquisite winetasting event

    without much difficulty or expense. For partiesof about six or more, this is a great way toexplore uncharted corners of the wine world bythe pool, on the patio or on the porch.

    PICK A THEMETo make it a proper wine tasting event, decideon a theme. You can build your tasting arounda particular wine region or a type of wine fromdifferent parts of the world or even an assort-ment of wine from the same winery.

    So, try a Chardonnays of the World themeand compare the delicate French Chablis witha robust American-oaked Napa Chardonnayto a gentle Old/New World fusion of AustraliasYarra Valley. Or, you may want to spice thingsup with an assortment of Chilean wines, withsome Malbecs, Carmeneres, and SauvignonBlancs.

    Even on a shoestring budget, you can affordto go global for your own wine tasting. Ifyoure on a tight budget or you like to doevents like this frequently, ask each of yourguests to bring a bottle of wine within thetheme of the tasting.

    MUST-HAVE ACCESSORIESIf it can be avoided, try not to serve wine outof Solo cups or plastic cocktail tumblers.

    If youre worried about bringing the crystalstemware out by the pool, your local dollarstore has a decent selection of both plasticand glassware that should make for a great

    wine experience without sacrificing quality.

    Everybody likes to be included, so its worthinvesting in at least one cheat sheet that hasuseful descriptive terms and hints about eachwine you taste. That way, newbies and sea-soned wine tasters alike can focus on the wineand nobody feels self-conscious about notknowing the lingo. Many liquor stores andwineries sell pocket-sized tasting guides forunder $5, but you can just as easily print oneoff the Internet.

    You may also want to invest in an opaquepitcher to serve as a spittoon. This allowsdesignated drivers a chance to politely spit outthe wine after theyve sampled it, so they toocan participate in the fun!

    MAKING IT A TRUE TASTINGEXPERIENCEMake the wine tasting its own event.

    Dont try to shoehorn it between appetizersand dinner and dont stress about finding theperfect food to pair with it. Thats not what atasting is about.

    Start with the heaviest, most dry wine andserve about a quarter glass to your guests.This is just enough to appreciate each wine,while keeping in mind that several wines willbe served throughout the course of the tasting.Its also a good idea to have some bread inbetween each taste to freshen everybodyspalette.

    If you choose to serve dinner, do so after thetasting and allow each guest to choose theirfavorite wine of the evening to accompanytheir meal.

    Stop by Island Winery at 12A CardinalRoad for a great selection of award-winning wines, ranging from Old Worldvinted dry wines to Low Country Specialtywines. The friendly and knowledgeablestaff will be glad to offer suggestions foryour wine tasting event. Store/Tasting hoursare Mon.-Sat., 12:30-5:30 p.m. with WineFlights & Cheese available from 12:30-2:30 p.m. A Wine & Cheese Happy Hour is offered Mon.-Thurs. starting at 4 p.m.(843) 842-3141 or

    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!

    The real estate market is heating up on HiltonHead Island and the surrounding Lowcountry.If you have ever thought about owning propertyon the Island, now may be the perfect oppor-tunity. Whether you are looking for a primaryresidence, second home or investment property,our market is primed for buyers to succeed!

    WHY HILTON HEAD ISLAND?Well, for one thing, just take a look around.Our 12 miles of sandy beaches, moderateclimate, abundant wildlife and in-keeping-with-nature architecture truly make HiltonHead Island a special place.

    We are also part of a natural migration ofBaby Boomers looking to retire to warmerclimates.

    Hilton Head Island is nearing a point of beingbuilt-out, which will help to drive prices up in thefuture. In addition, as other areas just get moreand more commercialized, Hilton Head Islandwill always retain some of its natural charmdue to regulations put in place years ago.

    MARKET UPDATEYear-to-date, our market is showingincreased sales over the year prior, althoughsales prices and overall inventory havedecreased slightly. As of this magazine goingto print, we are seeing a decrease in interestrates, as well.

    There are also two new loan products that areproving popular for buyers.

    Fannie Mae HOMEPATH properties allow forputting little money down, no mandatoryappraisal, plus incentives, such as up to 3.5%buyer assistance on primary home purchasesthat close by the end of June. For propertiesrequiring repairs, HOMEPATH has a renova-tion loan option, as well.

    The Palmetto Heroes Loan Program is targetedat law enforcement officers, teachers, firefight-ers, veterans, nurses and EMS personnel thatreside in SC. It offers low-interest home loansto current first-time buyers, as well as a downpayment assistance program of up to $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 distantdream, second home ownership provides anopportunity to enjoy your home now whilerenting it out during your absence to offsetexpenses.

    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 to buy.

  • Horoscope June 2011Aries If there has been a breakdown incommunication between you and a long-

    time friend or loved one, dont stand around onceremony, but go to the source immediately andforce a friendly confrontation. This could solvemany problems, some of which you may noteven be aware of. In business, be alert forchances to improve you standing with higher-ups.

    Taurus Unexpected financial gainscould be made by simply sitting still. It

    would also be unwise to look a gift horse in themouth. Romantic urges should be ignored, ifpossible, and by no means should you becomeinvolved in anything clandestine or below yournormal standards. Career problems could arisefrom misunderstanding a spoken message. Makesure you put everything down in black and white.

    Gemini Try to keep a tight rein on yournormal impulsiveness, particularly in the

    romantic arena. Promises made in the moonlightcan return to haunt you in the cold light of day.Getting uptight over office gossip cannot improveyour position. It would be best to ignore personswho seem to annoy you than to becomeinvolved in a fight that would be difficult to win.

    Cancer Personal advice from an olderperson of some influence and experience

    could be worth its weight in gold if you listencarefully and follow it to the letter. You couldgain invaluable experience and increase yoursalable talents by spending some leisure time inwork involving some charity. Romance may notbe your cup of tea now, but grin and bear it.

    Leo You are in an excellent positionromantically and it could be a time of

    much excitement and delight. You could findyourself involved deeply with children, one ormore of whom may seek or need your help. At the office, keep your nose down tight on the grindstone and avoid any tendency to make waves. The reasons will becomeapparent soon.

    Virgo Conflict with friends or loverscould lead to better understanding, if you

    are completely honest and aboveboard. This isparticularly important if past indiscretions havecome to light. Make your time count for some-thing and avoid vegetating in front of thetelevision set. Join a group or take up a produc-tive hobby, but make some sort of move.

    Libra Chances for advancement in yourcareer could come as the result of a recent-

    ly attended party. You could also become deeplyinvolved romantically with someone whom youmet there, if you continue seeing him or her.Parental problems could arise for you and shouldbe attended to promptly. Avoid debate over actionsthat have taken place and cannot be changed.

    Scorpio Your tendency to go off thedeep end romantically over someone you

    hardly know should be curbed drastically. This isparticularly true as you may run up on a charm-ing but completely amoral person who couldcause you much pain. In business, maintainyour sharpness for figures and your skill atsmelling out unprofitable ventures. It couldstand you in good stead.

    Sagittarius Make your plans andlong-range goals quite plain to one who

    seems more than a momentary flirtation. If this spoils a pleasant relationship, you will bebetter off in the long run. In business, be firmwithout appearing to be heartless. Dont give in on a major point involving honesty orpersonal integrity.

    Capricorn Friendships from the pastare more valuable than passing acquain-

    tances of the present. This could be broughthome to you in a way that could be startling oreven painful, if you ignore this advice. A careerpromotion which has been much on your mindcould be lost through a foolish and petty remarkon your part, if you fail to guard your tongue.

    Aquarius Promotion and increases inyour pay could be forthcoming through

    the intervention of an influential friend butthey will not prove lasting, if you fail to pro-duce. Writing a letter of thanks to an old friendmay not be easy, but you will be glad that youdid in the near future. Move up your vacationday and get away to a remote place for somerelaxation or your health may suffer.

    Pisces Words spoken in anger or hastecould come back to cause you pain or

    embarrassment. Try to work things out in afriendly manner with one you think has wrongedyou. Give that person the benefit of the doubtthat you, yourself, would like to have. Romanticadventures can be yours, if you let yourself go atthe proper time, with the proper person.

    Dont enter the water if you cantswim.

    Swim near a lifeguard. United States Lifessaving Association statistics show that substantially more drownings occur in areas where there are no lifeguards.

    Ask the lifeguard about any dangers in the water or on the beach, especially if he or she is flying a yellow caution flag.

    Be aware of direction and strength of longshore currents.

    These currents can take you up and down the beach quickly and cause you or your kids to get lost.

    Dont let your kids swim unsuper-vised, even in guarded areas.

    Dont swim alone. Use the buddysystem so that someone always knows where you are so they canget help if needed.

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

    get stuck in water over your head.

    Dont rely on flotation devices. Swim parallel to shore if you

    want to swim long distances. Dont swim against the current.

    Swim across the current to escape the pull.

    Always swim sober. Dont dive into unknown water

    or shallow breaking waves. Always go feet first. This will helpyou avoid spinal injuries.

    History of the Sea Pines Forest Preserve

    The Sea Pines Resort Forest Preserve wasformally opened on June 1, 1971.

    Charles and Joseph Fraser of the Sea Pinesfounding family filed legal covenants in 1970dedicating the 606 acres in the Preserve as aWildlife Habitat and Outdoor RecreationFacility.

    It was specifically created so that we mightall enjoy and appreciate the varied bounty ofour very special natural environment.

    The Forest Preserve is one of Hilton Headsfinest assets. Many visitors consider a visit tothe Preserve the highlight of their visit here, asit offers an insight into the value of land leftin its natural state for thousands of visitors toenjoy.

    Within the Preserve, there is a Shell Ring madeby Indian Moundbuilders 4,000 years ago built about the same time as the Pyramids!Locals used to say that the Ring had somereligious significance, but scholars say thatthe Ring was created around a campsite and old oyster shells form its base. Ancientartifacts have also been found there to givethe historians insight into the Indians daily life.

    The Sea Pines Resort Forest Preserve providesan oasis of valuable natural habitats in anotherwise heavily developed coastal island.

    The Forest describes the varieties of trees andplants, including the pine woods, live oak for-est, fresh water marsh and the endless varietiesof grass. Depending on the time of your visit,you might be able to enjoy the spectacularwildflower meadow in full bloom by LakeThomas or herons nesting by the thousandson the shores.

    The wildlife in the Preserve is renowned andyou will probably pass alligators basking inthe fishing lakes or sunning themselves on thebanks. The Hilton Head Whitetail Deer popu-lation is also very prolific, although rarelyspotted during daylight hours.

    Over 200 species of birds have been spottedin the Preserve and the area has been recog-nized as an Important Bird Area by theNational Audubon Society. Ornothologistscome from all around to view the birdlife inand around Lakes Mary, Thomas and Joe.

    Lawton Stables offers one-hour guidedWestern-style trail rides into The Sea PinesResort Forest Preserve on gentle horses foradults and children at least eight years old,in addition to Summer Riding Camps forbeginner-intermediate riders, a SummerAcademy for advanced riders, privateriding lessons, pony rides and a free ani-mal farm.

    Of all the animals that frequent the saltmarshand tidal waters surrounding Hilton HeadIsland, none attracts so much attention asAtlantic Bottlenose dolphin.

    We are fortunate, in our area, to enjoydolphin year-round.

    Known especially for their unique strandfeeding behavior, witnessed only along a100-mile stretch of our shoreline, theresident dolphin are joined by migrants whohave spent the cooler winter months roamingnear shore along the coast of SouthCarolina. Combined, the population ofdolphin swells to several hundred possiblymore during the summer months.

    And now, with the summer season upon us, itis highly likely you will witness the feeding,frolicking and playful behaviors of dolphinalong our sandy shores and within the grassyconfines of our salt marshes.

    What makes our waterways so inviting? Food!

    The abundance of food drives dolphin intothe rich marine habitat of the Lowcountry.Biologists estimate the saltmarsh producesseveral times the bio-mass produced by themost fertile agricultural soil. The amount ofplant and animal life produced and supportedin the saltmarsh environment is astonishing.

    Adrift as the tide ebbs and flows, countlessmicro-organisms nourish larger and largerorganisms in the food web that ultimately

    serve as breakfast, lunch, dinner (and lots ofsnacks in-between) for dolphin. An averageadult dolphin about eight feet long andseveral hundred pounds consumes about50 pounds of fish each and every day!

    Highly intelligent, dolphin use both ocularawareness and eco-location to masterfullylocate food in their environment, most oftenworking cooperatively to isolate, school,consolidate and devour their prey. It is saidtheir eco-location skills can become so acutethat they can identify their favored fishes fromall the rest!

    Do note that dolphin are different fromporpoise. While dolphin and porpoise arerelated (both are members of the orderCetacea), dolphin and porpoise aredistinctively different.

    Dolphin have conically-shaped teeth;porpoise have flattened spade-shaped teeth.Dolphin typically have a distinct thick beak,while porpoise tend to have a blunt nose.Other noticeable characteristics: Dolphintend to have a curved dorsal fin, while that ofa porpoise is more triangular in shape anddolphin tend to be larger than porpoise.Finally, porpoise tend not to hang out in ournear-coastal waters.

    Federally protected, it is unlawful to feed orattract dolphin to your boat or kayak.Respectfully observe these wonderful animalsfrom a safe distance. Allow them to remainwild by not interacting with them. Theirnatural antics will charm and amaze you.

    abdominals to create the humming noise we socommonly hear.

    The Cicada will also make a distress call, thathas a much higher pitch than its mating call.This is usually sounded when the Cicada isunder attack. Most commonly they are eaten bybirds and will create the high-pitched distresscall, when being pecked off a tree.

    There are 2,500 species of Cicadas around the world, most of which are periodical. Theylive on a specifically timed life cycle, such as 13-year or 17-year cycles.

    This means that in one place all the members ofa specific Cicada population develop at thesame time. They all hatch at the same time,burrow into the ground at the same time andemerge together within a 13- or 17-year span.

    While South Carolina has Annual Cicadas thatenliven our summers, we also have PeriodicalCicadas. This year, 2011, is the emergence of aspecific 17-year cycle Cicada the Magicicada,Brood 19. These special Brood 19s will have redeyes and lighter-toned bodies of yellow andorange, unlike our usually black-colored Cicadas.They will begin to emerge in June and continueto flood our forests for much of the summer.

    This type of periodical Cicada may be familiarto many people around the United States whosuffer from plagues of these insects in thesummer months. Referred to as Locust inNorthern and Midwestern states, Cicadas andLocust are very different creatures all together.

    A Locust comes from the order Orthopterawhich is the order of Grasshoppers, Cricketsand Katydids. The Locust form is a reference tothe swarming phase of a Short-HornedGrasshopper. In the right conditions, theseGrasshoppers can reproduce very quickly andcan travel great distances, destroying crops andcreating a large disturbance in rural areas. Thistype of great emergence is similar to theperiodical lifestyles of some Cicadas.

    Focusing on the wildlife and habitats of theLowcountry, the H2O Nature Centerfeatures live reptile and amphibian exhibits,hands-on displays and more. Apparel, gifts,books and bicycle/fishing gear rentals arealso available. To make reservations for theAlligator and Wildlife Tour with MasterNaturalist Kathleen McMenamin, pleasecall (843) 686-5323.

    Cicada ManiaBy Kathleen McMenamin, Master Naturalist, H2O Nature Center

    The maleCicada is thenoisiest of the bunch!

    Have you ever wondered about the constantbuzzing noise on Hilton Head? It lasts all dayand all night throughout our summer months.They are Cicadas, an annual insect thatemerges throughout the South. Their brilliantacoustics bring our Lowcountry summers to life.

    The Cicada is an insect in the Hemipteraorder, which is the family of true bugs. Morespecifically, it is in the genus of Tibicen, whichis an annual Cicada.

    The life cycle of a Cicada begins in treebranches, where the mother can depositseveral hundred eggs. After the newbornnymphs are born, they drop to the groundwhere they burrow into the substrate. TheNymphs have very strong legs for digging andwill live one to eight feet underground.

    Feeding off of tree roots for the first 2 to 3 yearsof their lives, once they are ready to emergeand the temperature is right (usually about 80 degrees Fahrenheit), they dig their way to

    the surface. The Nymphsthen shed their skin in aprocess called molting andemerge out of their new skinas adults. This exoskeletoncan commonly be seenlatched onto trees aroundthe Lowcountry. TheCicadas will then live for

    another year or two, in an effort to reproduceas much as possible.

    The male Cicada is the noisiest of the bunch!The purpose of all their racket is to attractfemales.

    The noise is made by a tymbal, located on theside of the Cicadas abdominals. The contrac-tion and relaxation of the tymbal musclescreates clicking noises. The majority of the ab-dominal section of the Cicada is hollow,creating a great area for acoustics. This rapidclicking noise can then reverberate within the

    June 25: 32nd Annual Daufuskie DayCelebration on Daufuskie Island. A lively



    The month of June has justabout everything an anglercan hope for.

    First of all, surf fishing hasofficially hit high gear withdaily catches of whiting,snapper bluefish, red drumand a variety of sharks andstingrays.

    For the inshore anglers,redfish can be caught in avariety of ways.

    They are still at the mouthsof feeder creeks and tailingon the shallow flats. Theinshore waters are alsoheating up with catches ofladyfish and jack crevalle,bluefish and Spanish mack-erel on light tackle.

    This is the time of year thelarger sharks are in for thebreeding season, so dustoff your heavy tackle if youplan to fight these mon-sters. Also, cobia can stillbe caught in good numbersfor the first few weeks ofthe month, but they will

    soon move out to theoffshore reefs and wrecks.

    Offshore fishing gets betterthis month with largeschools of Spanish mack-erel and bluefish to keepthe trolling boats busy andlive bait fishing for kingmackerel on the reefs.

    Toward the end of themonth, the first sightingsof tarpon schools will bein town. Use wire rigs andstout rods for these giants.Go deep sea for dolphin,wahoo and sailfish.

    See you on the seas!

    Youve hit a nice drive that has stoppedon a sloped part of the fairway, caus-ing you to stand below the ball for yournext shot.

    Dont panic. Think about how yourclub will rest on the ground relative tothe ball. If you were hitting off a flat lie,the clubface would sit flush against theground, with the heel and toe alignedon the same horizontal plane. Here,however, the toe will sit slightly higherand the heel lower than the ball,requiring you to make some subtleadjustments.

    On an uphill lie, your clubface restsagainst the ground the way it would ifyou were using clubs too long for you.The toe will sit higher than the ball andthe heel lower, creating sidespin thatwill cause the ball to draw.

    With the toe and heel misaligned inthis manner, you will unavoidablyimpart sidespin to the ball, causing ahook.

    Keeping this in mind, the first thing youmust do is adjust your target line. Sinceyour ball will hook, adjust your stanceso that you are aligned not directlytoward the target but to the right of it.

    There is no specific rule for determin-ing how much you should aim right,

    other than that dictated by common sense. The greaterthe slope, the farther right you should aim. Time andpractice will enable you to develop an instinctive feel forhow slight or severe an adjustment to make when facedwith this type of shot.

    Take several practice swings to allow your feet to getaccustomed to the unusual alignment. The goal is toadapt your normal feeling of vertical balance to the uphillslope.

    Many amateurs respond to uphill, downhill or sidehill liesby shortening their backswing, follow-through or both.Remind yourself not to do this. All the adjustments youneed to make are done prior to the swing.

    Once youve adapted your balance, choke down on theclub a bit to ensure the clubface is still sitting evenagainst the ground. If you stand too erect, the heel will lift slightly, making the toe dig into the ground andencouraging a poor strike.

    As you set up, bounce on your knees slightly to makesure your balance is centered over your thighs and theballs of your feet. It is critical to ensure your weightdoesnt slip backward toward your heels or forwardtoward your toes. Again, your primary objective here is tomaintain a feeling of balance despite standing on anuneven slope.

    Finally, because youve choked down, effectivelyshortening your club and compromising some distance,take an extra club. From a sloped lie, youll most likely hitshorter than usual, so swallow your pride, compensatewith more club instead of less and youll probably behappier with the result.
