Follow the sun to Hilton Head Island, where you can enjoy world-class golf, fabulous restaurants, exciting shopping opportunities, endless outdoor activities and much more. We think you’ll agree that there’s no other place quite like it. November is full of exciting activities, from art exhibits to theatrical performances. In addition to a wide range of cultural activities, two signature Lowcountry culinary events take center stage this month.

Also, don’t miss the 24th Annual Taste of the Season, presented by the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce, on November 22 at the Hilton Head Marriott Resort and Spa in Palmetto Dunes. The area’s top chefs and restaurants will compete for “Best Cuisine” honors. Be sure to check out our Calendar of Events for a complete guide to the best of what’s happening on the Island in November. One thing that makes Island Events unique is our talented line-up of community columnists. In this issue, Capt. Miles Altman discusses the fabulous flounder, Georgene Mortimer of Island Winery takes us on a tour of California wine country, Jessie Renew of Outside Hilton Head celebrates fall oyster season and Master Naturalist Kathleen McMenamin discusses the Great White Sharks that frequent South Carolina’s coastline. And, of course, no issue would be complete without Doug Weaver of the Palmetto Dunes Golf Academy offering insight to help you make the most of your time on the green this month. In November, as always, we’re dedicated to guiding you to the ultimate Hilton Head Island experiences, making your time here as fun and rewarding as possible.

Terroir Travels By Georgene Mortimer, Island Winery

Moving from the mist into the light in Northern California’s wine country.

Sonoma Coast, courtesy of Georgene Mortimer

Standing at the mouth of the Russian River, enveloped in a cold Pacific maritime fog, we really began to get a palpable sense of the “terroirs” we were about to encounter. Terroir is the term used to describe the complete natural environment in which a particular wine is produced, including factors such as the soil, topography and climate. O.K., I will admit Highway One is scary! But the steep rocky cliffs of the Sonoma Coast are where we needed to begin our journey into West Coast wine country. The Sonoma Coast terroir is shrouded in a cool mist and fog, which keep temperatures at night in the 40’s, rarely venturing above 70 during the day. This cool, sometimes harsh, climate provides for a long, cold growing season, which imbues unique characteristics into the Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays of northern California. The yields are low and the grape clusters are small, creating a thick skin and a high skin-to-juice ratio. These characteristics produce wines that are highly complex, with a wonderful balance of acid and mature fruit. Leaving the rocky coast, we headed east through misty redwood groves on a road snaking along the Russian River. Traveling into the narrow Russian River Valley, we began to see the gradual changes in our surroundings, signaling the fact that we were entering into another unique growing region. We were beginning to discern the terroir of the world-famous Russian River Valley. While the fog was still a significant feature as 20 ISLAND EVENTS NOVEMBER 2013

we entered the valley from the southwest, it slowly gave way to a sunny dry heat when we reached Healdsburg, 26 miles away, to the northeast. At approximately 126,000 acres, the Russian River Valley is so large it can be divided into three sub-regions, depending largely on the distance from the Pacific Ocean and the elevation. Traveling through the valley we saw how the mountain peaks – some nearly 2,000 feet high – create conduits through which cold maritime air and fog penetrate miles inland. This is the key ingredient that makes Russian River wines so remarkable. Tempered by the distance from the coast, the cool Pacific air acts as a moderator, preventing large swings between daily high and low temperatures. There’s no question that this is where Pinot Noir shines. Because there are so many climate and topography variations within the valley, it’s not surprising how diverse the flavor profiles are throughout the region. From the spiced, piney quality which comes from the cooler foggy part of the region to the rich, bold and full-bodied wine derived from the warmer, dryer region towards Healdsburg, a Pinot Noir lover could get lost here forever! We couldn’t linger too long, however, as we had much more exploring to do. To be continued… The perfect bottle of wine awaits at Island Winery on Cardinal Road. Store and tasting hours are Monday through 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

The Importance of SALT MARSHES Courtesy of the Coastal Discovery Museum

Although mucky and smelly, the salt marsh is an important part of the Lowcountry. In actuality, the salt marsh produces more food for the environment than rain forests. The green grass that dominates the marsh is called salt marsh cord grass or Spartina. When this cord grass dies each winter and decomposes, its nutrients are released into the marsh mud, creeks, streams and even into the ocean. These nutrients begin the food chain for the entire Southeastern coastal area. So, the next time you enjoy a meal of shrimp, mussels, oysters, blue crab, stone crab or saltwater fish, thank the muddy salt marshes.

Horoscope

November 2013

ARIES Things aren’t exactly where you want them on the job? Practice patience. It’s OK to do the same thing over and over again; this kind of work ethic pays off in the long run. Socially, it’s time to meet new people. A Sagittarian makes a friendly overture this month. Accept.

ing to do too many things – romance, work, friends, family, hobbies and downtime. There’s time for it all, but not in one day. Use this month to take time out for yourself. The weekend is a great time to focus on romance, but if things don’t go the way you want, don’t force it.

TAURUS Too much work and no play isn’t good for anyone, Taurus. Especially not for someone who’s been going at it for as long and hard as you have. Take a break. Use this month to plan a special trip – and make it a long one. There will be plenty of time for work when you return!

SCORPIO Romance not going your way? Things can change this month, but it’s up to you. Are you going to keep dwelling on the past, or will you look to the future for happiness? It’s your choice. Don’t know where to look? Check right under your nose. You’ll like what you see.

GEMINI If finances aren’t looking

LIBRA Slow down, Libra. You’re try-

SAGITTARIUS Got the blues? Try

too good this month, it may be time to make a new plan. Take time out to budget your expenses for the month – or the year. Feeling creative? Make a flowchart, and note where unaccounted-for pennies are going. You’ll probably be surprised with the outcome.

not to give in. Focus on things that make you feel happy. It’s a great time to make efforts in health and fitness. Start a diet. Go to the gym. Maybe even look into signing up for a class. Just don’t be afraid to put yourself first this month. It’s a wise investment.

CANCER This is not the month to be your usual practical self. It’s a month to treat yourself right. Work stressing you out? Call in sick, and enjoy some downtime. Your romantic outlook is good for the coming weeks, but move slowly if you want to secure victories in matters of the heart.

CAPRICORN Tired of trying to please an impossible boss? Don’t. Do things as you know how, and let him/her fix the rest. And, definitely don’t take the aggravation home with you. Also, if your boss happens to be a Taurus, watch out for meddling. Know where to draw the line, and stand by it.

LEO You seem to be doing a lot of talking lately, Leo, and not enough listening. Wise up. A Gemini friend comes to you for career advice. You have the chance for a starring role this month behind the scenes, instead of in the spotlight, like you’re accustomed to. Don’t blow it.

VIRGO Work isn’t everything. Practice telling yourself that over and over again this month. You’ll find things changing from stressful to dull often. That’s OK. Don’t forget you can make your own challenges outside the workplace. Plan things to look forward to. New romance looks promising. 38 ISLAND EVENTS NOVEMBER 2013

AQUARIUS It’s your own fickleness that’s driving you crazy. Figure out what you really want. Trying new things has never been hard for you. It’s sticking to them that’s your problem. Advice? Slow down, and set aside a period of time for that new activity – and don’t back down until the time’s up. PISCES Feel like you’re just going through the motions in romance? Bring your heart back into the picture. You’re hit with some serious relationship questions. Think before you answer. Honesty and sincerity are the only ways to obtain the closeness you so desire. Weigh your options carefully. hiltonhead.com

The Fantastic Flounder By Capt. Miles Altman, Bayrunner Fishing Charters

November is an ideal time to reel in this tasty fish.

Photo provided by Capt. Miles Altman

A master of camouflage, the flounder is one of the oddest looking fish swimming in our local waters. A flat fish with both eyes on one side of its body, the flounder has the capability of altering its coloration to match the bottom of the ocean, where it lies in wait for its prey. Jaws full of sharp teeth expand to facilitate the lightning-quick strike, which is usually followed by returning to the bottom to savor its catch. This behavior can puzzle an angler who is fortunate enough to hook a flounder. When drifting a bait on a cork, the cork will often stop as if it were stuck on the bottom. When casting an artificial, the flounder bite feels like a snag. As you reel the flounder in, it may feel like dead weight initially, until the fish starts to battle. Then, hold on! Using its flatness and muscle, the flounder can put up a great fight. Flounder are not born with both eyes on one side of their body. They go through a metamorphosis, which occurs when they transition from the larval state to the juvenile state. The top side of the fish, where the eyes are, is dark while the bottom side is white. I have seen some flounder that were partially dark on the bottom, but this is a rare sight. One thing is for sure: most people know how delicious the flounder is, which explains why it is widely sought commercially and highly valuable. 50 ISLAND EVENTS NOVEMBER 2013

Locally, the flounder is a pleasant surprise to anglers chasing the more readily available speckled trout and redfish. To our north – from Myrtle Beach to New York – anglers are blessed with better flounder fishing as they tend to school up more so than here. Occasionally, large numbers can be caught at the offshore reefs near Hilton Head Island. However, inshore gigging tends to be a more efficient method of procuring better numbers of flounder. The weather has cooled and so has the water, offering better clarity. November through January is a great season for artificial baits such as the soft plastic Gulp variety, the screwtail and paddle tail plastic jigs. There is certainly an abundance of speckled trout and redfish around at this time of year. If you’re lucky, that “snag” you feel on your line just might turn out to be a bonus flounder! Happy fishing! 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.

Great White Sharks By Kathleen McMenamin, Master Naturalist,H2O Sports

These apex predators can be found in the ocean off the coast of South Carolina.

the ocean floors.

Photo by Terry Goss, ©2006, http://en.wikipedia.org

Great White Sharks are magnificent top predators found along almost all coastlines of the world. These creatures are thought of as dangerous “people eaters” due to Hollywood portrayals. However, Great Whites aren’t interested in humans. In fact, Great White attacks happen by accident, when these giant fish mistake humans for seals or other marine mammals they prey upon. Humans don’t taste good to Great Whites, so in most cases they bite and then move on. Carchardon carcharias share an ancestry dating back 400 million years. Their ancient ancestors, Megalodon, are considered to be older than dinosaurs. Great Whites have large torpedoshaped bodies with strong tails, enabling them to swim up to 35 miles an hour. They can live to be up to 60 years old, reach up to 20 feet in length and weigh up to 5,000 pounds. Males will mature when they are 10 years old, while females mature at the age of 16. Great Whites prefer cooler waters and have one of the largest, most diverse migration patterns of any animal. Great White sharks are intelligent creatures with six senses that are highly tuned for their predatory lifestyle. They have an acute sense of smell and can detect one drop of blood per 10 billion drops of water. Their ears are small slits located behind and above their eyes which sense vibrations from a great distance. They also have specific ear stones which sense gravity and allow them to orient themselves in the water. The Great White’s retinas are divided into two parts, providing acute vision by day and by night. Their sense of touch allows them to feel vibrations in the water from up to 820 feet away. Their sense of taste is also sharp due to taste buds located throughout their entire mouths. Their sixth sense is electro-perception, which they use for navigation across the ocean. Specialized pores located on the underside of their snout allow them to feel electrical currents along 52 ISLAND EVENTS NOVEMBER 2013

Great White Sharks are considered to be a Threatened Vulnerable species. Humans are the most common predator to Great Whites. These creatures are often killed due to “catch casualties” by commercial fishermen. They’re also hunted for their fins, which are made into soup in many countries. Pollution in the ocean, including heavy metals and toxins, is also causing declines in population among the Great White species. Ocean Research, a group of scientists and researchers interested in learning more about Great White behavior and migration patterns, have tagged Great White Sharks along the U.S. Atlantic coast and South Africa. Information is used to learn about the biology and health of these creatures. According to Ocean Research, three Great Whites have been spotted off the South Carolina coast: Genie, a 14.8-foot female weighing 2,292 pounds; Lydia, a 14.6-foot female weighing 2,000 pounds; and Mary Lee, a 16-foot female weighing 3,456 pounds. Mary Lee, in particular, has spent a lot of time off of our Southern coast. Her tag identified her at the mouth of the Port Royal Sound in South Carolina on Thanksgiving of 2012 and placed her along the coastline of Jacksonville Beach in Florida in January of 2013. For more information about our local Great Whites, visit www.OCEARCH.org. This site contains up-to-date information about the location and behaviors of five Great Whites, three Makos, three Bull Sharks and one Blue Shark swimming along the U.S. Atlantic Coast. The H2O Nature Center focuses on the wildlife and habitats of the South Carolina Lowcountry. Offering eco adventure tours, live animal exhibits, educational programs and hands-on displays, The H2O Nature Center is a great place to spark curiosity and inspire learning in all ages.

Amazing Oysters By Jessie Renew, Outside Hilton Head

These bivalves are deeply rooted in the history, lore and culture of the Lowcountry.

As the air temperature drops in November, so too does the water temperature. This colder aquatic environment leads to a slowing of the growth of plankton and, consequently, clearer water. It also facilitates the annual dying off of the spartina alterinflora, which turns the bright green marsh grass of summer into a still, dead savannah. Most importantly, however, November marks the peak of oyster season. In the Lowcountry, there’s only one way to eat oysters – at an oyster roast. A grill is typically set up over open flame, the oysters are placed on that grill and then covered in a wet burlap sack. The wet burlap seals in the heat and steams the oysters. You know they’re done when they just pop open. The steamed oysters are dumped on a table, which is outfitted with shucking knives, rags, paper towels, lemon slices, saltines and various condiments. Everyone gathers around the table and, holding the oyster carefully with a rag, uses the knife to pry the oysters open and reveal their juicy meat. What a great way to enjoy being outside this month! The oyster shells are collected separately from the other trash, and taken either to an Oyster Shell Recycling Facility or put back in a salt river. The shells will weather on the riverbed, and the calcium they contain will become available for growing oysters to absorb. Oyster shell recycling is vital to maintaining a healthy oyster population. Oyster season in South Carolina runs from September through April – all the months that contain the letter “R.” In the summer, warm water facilitates the fast breeding and growing of many tiny plants and animals that are suspended in our waters. Some species of summertime plankton are bacteria (and most are harmless), but some are harmful to humans if ingested. Oysters are filter feeders, passing gallons of water through 54 ISLAND EVENTS NOVEMBER 2013

their bodies each day, filtering out particles for food. For this reason, they are better eaten when it’s too cold for harmful bacteria to grow in the water, and ultimately, to enter the oysters’ bodies. To harvest oysters, it is best to see a professional. The thin calcified layers of the oyster shell are very, very sharp and require skill and equipment to harvest correctly. Bluffton, South Carolina is home to the last hand-shucking oyster house on the Eastern Seaboard, The Bluffton Oyster Company. The Toomer family has been in the business for generations and takes special care to protect the delicate species they harvest. Oysters can live for up to 30 years and grow to be more than a foot long, but most of the oysters around here aren’t quite that big. Oysters start out as free floating plankton, then attach themselves to whatever looks like it isn’t going anywhere, most often other oysters. There they stay for their entire lives. Oysters have few natural predators, since their tough shell keeps most things out. Since they can’t move, these bivalves are susceptible to changes in salinity and water quality. A flood or a drought can kill miles of oyster beds. Competition for space on a mud bank is another threat to the oyster. New oysters can slowly bury older oysters until they suffocate and die. Oysters are deeply rooted in the ecology, history and culture of the Lowcountry. The cooler months are a great time to take one of Outside Hilton Head’s history and culture tours and learn more about the natural environment that makes the Lowcountry so fascinating.

Learning from Baseball and Tennis By Doug Weaver, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort

... November is an ideal month to tee off on Hilton Head’s championship golf courses

your airways, these muscles contract and force the air out of your lungs. Photography by Rob Tipton/Boomkin Productions

Sitting behind first base at an Atlanta Braves game, I had a great view of the batters as they hit the ball. I realized that, in many ways, the impact when the batter hits the ball looks the same as the impact when a golfer hits the ball on the PGA Tour. Here’s a quick checklist to keep in mind when hitting a golf ball effectively: 1. An outside observer can see the belt buckle moving to the target, creating centrifugal force 2. Centrifugal force straightens and extends your left arm 3. A good 80% of your weight is on your left foot 4. Your head remains to the right of the ball 5. The right heel is coming off the ground 6. The right knee is pivoting toward the target There’s a lot golfers of all skill levels, from amateurs to pros, can learn from other sports. You may be surprised to learn that tennis players tend to make great golfers. The major reasons are the similarities in the mechanics involved in both sports. The forehand in tennis is a rotation to the back foot and then a rotation to the front foot. The same core muscles do the work in a proper golf swing. Every time a tennis player strokes a forehand they’re developing those muscles. Take your hands and place them on the sides of your trunk above the belt line and below your ribs. Now laugh and feel the contraction of the oblique muscles. This muscle squeezes your lungs and forces the air out of your lungs for a hearty laugh. The same action takes place when you cough. Triggered by the need to clear 56 ISLAND EVENTS NOVEMBER 2013

Tennis superstar Rafael Nadal has developed the oblique muscles and increased his racket speed considerably. Grand Slam winners who have pursued competitive golf include Ivan Lendl, Leyton Hewitt and Stan Smith. Tennis players have a head start in learning proper golf. I invite you to give your knees a rest and begin the natural transition to golf. You can learn to be an athletic golfer like Bobby Riggs, who visited Palmetto Dunes Resort frequently in the ‘70s and ‘80s. Mr. Riggs would play tennis in the morning, eat lunch and (without changing clothes) go to the driving range looking for a golf game. Jack Nicklaus broke down a barrier separating the active tennis players and the perceived nonathletic golfers who rode in carts or walked. When Nicklaus built a tennis court in his back yard, and a photograph of him playing tennis with his family appeared in a national magazine, people began mixing the sports in their agendas. Now, we know the two games complement each other quite well. The bottom line: you’ll play better tennis if you play golf and vice versa. With cooler temperatures settling in and plenty of sunny days, November is an ideal month to tee off on Hilton Head’s championship golf courses. Make the most of your time on the course this season. I hope to see you out on the green! A former PGA Touring pro, Doug Weaver is the Director of Instruction at the Palmetto Dunes Golf Academy.
