Summer Refreshment By Georgene Mortimer, Island Winery

Sample local fruit wines to beat the heat in July.

Every region deals with the summer heat differently. In Sicily, they double down on the Mediterranean summer by pairing bold red wines with spicy fish courses. In California’s Napa Valley, locals might beat the heat with a chilled Chardonnay. Here on Hilton Head Island, we contend with heat and humidity during the summer season. Fortunately, Lowcountry fruits – including sweet peaches, ripe blueberries and mouthwatering Muscadine – have been the cure for summer’s heat long before anyone figured out how to press them into wines. Lowcountry fruit wines and a nice sea breeze pair perfectly together because the fruit thrives here naturally. It’s a match made in heaven! Enjoy sweet relief from the heat by sipping a summer-friendly local fruit wine. This summer, if you visit our tasting room at Island Winery, one of the things you may notice is our diverse and ever-changing tasting menu. We carry just about everything including bold Italian-style red wines, crisp American white wines and, of course, local fruit wines. We know it gets pretty hot around here in the summertime, so we’ve crafted some fantastic “beach friendly” wine that pairs beautifully with our seasonal climate. Sip a fruity vintage as you watch the waves crash on the beach or the sunset over the marsh. We guarantee you’ll feel right at home. 22 ISLAND EVENTS JULY 2013

Our fruit wines at Island Winery are made with the same care as our award-winning reds and whites. Peach on the Beach is crafted from fresh local peaches and crisp white wine. We also carry a favorite called Southern Passion, which is a fruity Sangria crafted from red wine, Florida oranges and local peaches and blueberries. Do you like your fruit wines sweet or on the dry side? Do you prefer a vintage made from a base of white wine or red wine? Sample a variety of fruit wines to find the one that’s just right for your palate. Remember that wine is an incredibly subjective experience. The vintage your spouse or your best friend adores might not be your favorite, and vice versa. Follow your muse and choose the wine that makes your heart sing. All tastings are complimentary. We welcome you to try one (or all!) of our wines to find the perfect complement to your Hilton Head summer vacation. You’ll enjoy a delicious facet of our local culture and appreciate the unique fruits and flavors of the South Carolina Lowcountry. Stop by our tasting room to judge for yourself. We think you’ll agree that there’s no better way to beat the heat this summer! The perfect bottle of wine awaits at Island Winery on Cardinal Road. Store and tasting hours are Monday-Saturday from 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Wine Flights and Cheese are available from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. A Wine & Cheese Happy Hour is offered Monday-Thursday starting at 4 p.m. (843) 842-3141 or islandwinery.com. hiltonhead.com

Chasing Mahi By Capt. Miles Altman, Bayrunner Fishing Charters

Photo provided by Capt. Miles Altman

A multi-generational fishing expedition offers formidable challenges and rich rewards.

The calm sea exploded around the skipping ballyhoo, the rod bucked wildly and the fish took to the air. There was no doubt we were hooked up to the most beautiful fish inhabiting the deep blue waters of the Gulfstream: the dolphin (fish), more commonly referred to as mahi. Young Robert Lyon, the third Lyon generation family member I’ve had the honor to fish with over the years, took up the rod and, after a great battle, Capt. Bryan Benson aced a nice gaff shot. Dinner was in the box. It was midday, and we had just arrived at our destination some 90 miles off the beach of Hilton Head. The calm seas promised for the morning were late, and we found our way offshore, stopping at Navy towers R7 and R8 looking for some action. We were not disappointed, having jigged up some amberjacks that provided tough bulldog battles for young Robert and my son Caleb. We also had a wolf pack of cobia circling the boat for awhile, but had no success in getting them to take the bait. Huge schools of spadefish, barracuda and mutton snapper offered up an aquarium experience that is all but guaranteed in the clear waters around these towers. However, now we were in the Gulfstream, our original destination, and the seas had flattened. With young Robert’s fish in the box, Capt. Bryan and I redeployed the bait as the senior Robert Lyon started working the boat up and down a spotty sargassum weed line. 98 ISLAND EVENTS JULY 2013

We spotted some blackfin tuna jumping around the weed – a good sign – and were soon rewarded with another explosion on the skipping bait. The line poured off the reel, and I wondered if it was one of the tough football-shaped blackfins we had sighted. The fish burst from the water with a huge head-shaking jump and, again, there was no mistake... big bull dolphin. Caleb was on the rod this time and finally living a dream. For years my son had told me, “I really want to catch a bull dolphin!” The back and forth battle went on for 20 minutes, accented by many aerial escapades by the bull. As the battle neared the end, we admired the gold, green and blue colors of this amazing fish as he jumped and swam only feet from the boat. Capt Bryan aced another great gaff shot just in time, as Caleb announced the fish was wearing him down. But he prevailed and his dream became reality with a nice catch, a 25-pound bull dolphin! Young Robert caught another large mahi and, while we set no records that afternoon, it was certainly a wonderful day. Two youngsters bending up rods is always a fun experience, and fishing with my son and young Robert’s dad brings back good memories of casting a line with one of my favorite people of all time, the senior Bob Lyon. Great people, great day. But that’s what you get when you fish with three generations and your own son. Capt. Miles Altman of Bayrunner Fishing Charters has more than 41 years experience fishing the waters surrounding Hilton Head Island. Don’t miss the new “Finatic” boat, which can accommodate up to 12 passengers and features a special threehour shark/dolphin eco-tour trip.

Chuck-Wills-Widows By Kathleen McMenamin, Master Naturalist,H2O Sports

Learn more about these distinctive birds, which serenade the Lowcountry all summer long.

Hilton Head Island’s warm weather and summer months brings back the elusive Chuck-Will’s-Widow. These birds serenade Hilton Head Island from dusk to dawn. While hard to spot, their call is distinct and nostalgic for both visitors and locals alike. Chuck-Wills-Widows, antrostomus carolinensis, are commonly mistaken for Whip-por-wills. A Wip-por-will call sounds just like its name, but is sung in a higher pitch and can be repeated on end for hours. The Chuck-Wills-Widow call has pauses in between each vocalization. The call sounds just like their name – “Chuck Wills Widow.” The “chuck” at the beginning of the call is very subtle and may not be noted if the bird is far away. These melodies tend to be vocalized at sunrise and sunset, but can be heard throughout the night.

Chuck-Wills-Widows have narrow hairlike feathers at the base of their beak called rictal bristles. It is thought that these bristles may have sensory features similar to whiskers. These rictal bristles will aid the bird in scooping up their food, which is primarily insects. Moths and beetles are among their favorite food. They are well equipped at flying low through dense brush in search of their flying prey. They have also been known to eat small birds and even bats. They prefer to eat at dusk and dawn, but can be found hunting all night long on full moons, or if there are street lights present. These birds arrive in our area to breed through the summer months. During courtship, males have been known to chase competitors up to a quarter mile away. Their song is the first step in finding a mate. They will also impress their female by drooping their wings, spreading their tail feathers and puffing out their chests while ruffling their feathers.

The Chuck-Wills-Widow is the largest bird in the Night Jar avian group. They can reach up to 32 inches in length and have large flat heads with long wings. Their brown tone coloration and intricately patterned feathers allow them to camouflage very well in our Lowcountry environment.

The females lay nests on the ground in dead leaves, pine needles or bare dirt. Once a year she will lay between one and four eggs at a time. The incubation time takes about 21 days. The young will stay with their parents for about 50 days, fledging at about 17 days.

They spend most of their time roosting on the ground, but can be found in tree branches at dusk and dawn. They will hang out on the ground by road sides and may be noticed because of their orange eye reflection; otherwise these birds are quite hard to spot.

This summer, keep an eye – and an ear – out for this elusive Lowcountry resident. Don’t miss the chance to catch a glimpse of this fascinating bird.

This particular species can be found throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic coast during the summer months. They spend their winters in South America and the Caribbean. They prefer to live in dry woodlands such as pine, oak and hickory forests and select spots on the edges of open wooded areas, hiding in brush, thickets and fields. 100 ISLAND EVENTS JULY 2013

High Tide By Capt. Patte Ranney, S.C. Master Naturalist, Outside Hilton Head

Recently, I spent an afternoon with an 80-year-old Lowcountry native. She was dipping her toes into local rivers before I was a sparkle in my parents’ eyes. I enjoyed hearing her talk about this place and how it has informed her well-lived years. One comment this octogenarian made continues to replay itself over and over in my head. “As kids, we didn’t have watches,” she said. “We measured our time by the rise and fall of the tides.” Imagine being so in tune with the cycle of the tide. The effects of the tide are apparent throughout the coastal Lowcountry. Wide expanses of sandy beach indicate that the tide is low. Very little-to-no beach signals high tide. In the saltmarsh creeks, we see the differences between tides and we can usually smell it too. Pluff mud exposed at low tide releases its natural gases, availing us of its earthy aroma. At high tide, the same scene appears awash with water, with only the tops of the grasses visible above the surface. Whether you’re a visitor or a resident, it’s smart to know the rhythm of the tides. The time between high and low tide is roughly 6 hours and 12 minutes. What may appear as a totally flooded landscape in the early morning will appear rather devoid of water by early afternoon. Return again in the evening and the same landscape will appear much the same as it did in the morning. By the next day, the cycle will repeat itself with an incremental shift in the actual time that it 102 ISLAND EVENTS JULY 2013

The ebb and flow of the tide shapes the everchanging environment around Hilton Head Island.

occurs. On a grander scale, the lunar day is roughly 24 hours and 50 minutes.

Imagine exploring the saltmarsh in a kayak. Head out on Monday at high tide and traverse the flooded grassy areas while you observe foraging redfish, blue crab and oysters beneath your boat. Notice periwinkle snails ascending blades of cordgrass, slowly but surely, and wading birds plucking juicy morsels from small pools trapped in the high marsh. Return on Friday and find the areas you explored earlier in the week are still high and dry, awaiting the rising tide. The flora and fauna of the saltmarsh depend upon the ebb and flow of the tide. Through experience, I’ve learned that the people who make the Lowcountry their home feel that same connection to the tides. My friend tells me she never referred to tide charts. She knew the tides intuitively. Perhaps you too can learn to measure time by the rise and fall of the tide. Come explore with us in July. Get Outside!

Perfect Your Putt By Doug Weaver, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort

Try these two simple drills to improve your accuracy on the green.

Photography by Joyce Harkins, Hilton Head Island Photography

Ironically, one of the best ways to improve your putt is to close your eyes. Putting with your eyes wide shut might sound crazy, but this is a savvy trick many professional golfers use to get in tune with their stroke on the green. Australian golfer Peter O’Malley has said, “I’m putting with my eyes closed. Everyone laughs when I say it, but it's true. It takes away the visual anxiety. When you get over those short putts and you can't see what the putt’s doing, it takes away the anxiety. With the eyes shut, I hit it more firmly than I probably would with my eyes open.” PGA Tour golfers Colin Montgomerie and Johnny Miller have each drawn attention from the media and from spectators alike for putting with their eyes closed in major tournaments. However, this technique can work wonders for recreational golfers as well. The eyes-closed strategy teaches you to feel the stroke and trust the mechanics of the putt. Once you develop the proper putting mechanics, you can get the ball in position, stand up tall and practice putting with your eyes closed at various distances from the hole. Remember, one of the biggest obstacles to putting is the human mind. If you overthink the putt, you’ll over involve your body. The putter should serve as a pendulum, swinging back and forth and delivering the ball to the cup, plain and simple. By closing your eyes, you’ll feel the stroke with your body and take your mind out of the equa104 ISLAND EVENTS JULY 2013

tion. You’ll also relax and focus more fully on the task at hand. And, as Peter O’Malley said, you’ll reduce the anxiety associated with trying to make the perfect putt. You can try this drill over and over on the golf course, moving the ball back a bit further each time. Remember that the putter knows what to do. You just need to encourage it to do it. Another great putting drill involves keeping your eye on the back of the cup, rather than on the ball itself, during a short putt. Gently putt the ball into the hole while keeping your eyes glued on the back of the cup. Like putting with your eyes closed, this exercise also encourages you to relax, think less and have faith in the simple physics of the putt. If you incorporate this putting drill into your practice routine, you should begin to develop a better feel on the green. By eliminating visual distraction, you can focus on the feel of the putt, which is what really matters. Above all, don’t let your mind hold you back on the golf course. Use these two simple drills to improve your accuracy and refine your putt. You just may see a major spike in your performance on the green. Remember that July is a great month to play golf on Hilton Head Island and an ideal time to perfect your putt. Always wear a hat in the summer sun, stay hydrated and have fun on the green this season! A former PGA Touring pro, Doug Weaver is the Director of Instruction at the Palmetto Dunes Golf Academy.
