HILTON HEAD HISTORY
Hilton Head Island has a long and rich history of visitors. Thousands of Years Ago
Native Americans came to hunt and fish.
Captain William Hilton sailed the British ship Adventure north from Barbados, scouting lands to grow sugar cane for the crown. Approaching the Island by way of Port Royal Sound, he encountered a sliver of land and called it “Hilton’s Headland.”
The Civil War brought big changes to Hilton Head Island. At the onset of the conflict, the South erected Fort Walker to protect the port. When the fort fell, tens of thousands of Union troops, prisoners, missionaries, shopkeepers and enslaved men and women seeking asylum flooded the Island. Suddenly humming with activity, Hilton Head became instrumental in the North’s blockade of nearby Southern ports. In 1863, the town of Mitchelville became the first self-governed town for freed men and women.
Developer and environmentalist Charles E. Fraser began work on the Island’s first resort, which he called Sea Pines. Fraser is sometimes called the father of the modern resort, and his vision for the Island was progressive, even by modern standards. His determination that no building be “higher than the tallest tree,” as well as his rejection of flashy neon signs, became central to the Island’s distinctive character. 14 Island Events July 2021
Conquistadors explored the area.
17th, 18th & 19th Centuries
For many years, few permanent residents made their home on Hilton Head Island. Though the humid, subtropical climate was ideal for growing agricultural crops like cotton and rice, fear of disease and isolation kept antebellum plantation owners on the mainland. Africans worked the plantations, and their unique blend of African and European traditions gave birth to the Gullah culture, which survives even today.
Post Civil War - 1956
After the Civil War, the Island’s population dropped to around 3,000, and by 1940, it had fallen to just over 1,000. Electricity finally came to the Island in 1950 and, six years later, Hilton Head’s very first bridge to the mainland made the area significantly more accessible.
Fraser’s legacy lives on in Hilton Head Island’s balance of commerce with green spaces, golf courses with wild places and thoroughfares with biking trails. Recently voted the Best Island in the U.S. by Travel and Leisure readers for the third time, this family-friendly sea island seamlessly combines luxury, adventure and charm – all in one unforgettable destination. hiltonhead.com

Your self-care has been a little all over the place recently. This month is a good time to consider which activities really make a difference in your overall well-being and which are just habits. Doubling down on what works best for you is the way to go.
TAURUS o o haven’t conferred with in a while may have something to say that you really need to hear. This month, touch base and start to restrengthen the bonds of this relationship. The ripple effects will surprise you! GEMINI
o r o of success, Gemini? Is it money, power, happiness, being wellliked, the ability to be authentic or something else entirely? This month, consider it, and remember that what you come up r r ro o r nitions you’ve heard. That’s OK! Knowing this about yourself is a big step forward.
Your patience with one particular friend is wearing thin. Whether or not you think they need to hear something you have to say, watch your delivery. One thing we never want to do to our friends and loved ones is kick them when they’re down.
LEO Have you curated the apps on your phone? Rethinking the oo o r r o really increase your productivity and lessen the time you spend endlessly scrolling. If learning something new or reading a book or even just exercising your mind is on your list of things to do, make it easy on yourr o r r VIRGO
There’s a family power dynamic that’s unsettling you. Is it the result of someone else’s insecurity or your own? This month, consider whether or not you own part of this problem. What are some steps you could take to remedy the issue on your end? 30 Island Events July 2021
JULY 2021 LIBRA Worrying all the time about what other people think of you is like having a monkey on your back — it’s hopelessly distracting and terribly uncomfortable. This month, try the following mantra: what other people think of me is none of my business. SCORPIO You’ve been saying
you wanted to try this new thing for months now. Whatever it is, just give it a shot! If you don’t like it, you never have to do it again. It’s time to take action and stop procrastinating. Magic happens in the creation of new thoughts, ideas and actions.
A passion project has lately become more of a chore. This month, take a moment to revisit your original motivation for taking it on. Was it love, money, to further yourself in some way? Do the same reasons still hold true? Investigate.
Misbehavior in adults isn’t unlike misbehavior in children. If you have a coworker o o r r trying to achieve with their antics — this may help you understand how best to defuse the tension. A reminder, though: you can watch them ride their roller coaster without boarding it yourself!
There’s a reason it’s called stepping outside your comfort zone, Aquarius. Discomfort will ensue! But these moments of heightened awareness and feeling can work wonders for the brain, body or soul stuck in a rut.
PISCES Too much screen time wreaks havoc on our eyes, our brains and our energy. Even a quick jaunt outside or around the office can refresh enthusiasm and add spring to your step. An experience you are longing for feels out of your reach. This month, ask yourself why. hiltonhead.com

Designated Swimming Areas:
Official swimming areas have been desig-
32 Island Events July 2021
nated for the Alder Lane, Coligny, Driessen, Folly Field and Islanders Beach Parks. The boundaries will be clearly marked on the beach and in the water. Lifeguards are stationed at these designated areas for assistance and beach information.
Beach Marker Signs:
Hilton Head’s beaches are marked near the dune line with signs to let emergency responders know where assistance is needed. They are also useful as a reference point if you or your group should become lost.
Beach Safety Tips: • Apply and reapply plenty of sunscreen even on cloudy days. • Wear sunglasses to prevent damage from the sun. • Stay hydrated and drink plenty of water. • Be aware of the rules and regulations of the beach. Signs are posted near most beach accesses. • Don’t leave your kids unsupervised even in guarded areas. • Note the location of the nearest lifeguard and report any hazardous conditions to him or her. • Know the name of the beach or hotel/ condo and the beach marker number where you are staying if you should need assistance. • There are often jellyfish and stingrays, as well as other sea life in and out of the water, which may sting or cut a person. In any situation where first aid is needed, find a lifeguard or seek further medical attention. • Call or wave for help if you are in trouble. hiltonhead.com
Water Safety Tips: • Don’t enter the water if you can’t swim. • Swim near a lifeguard. • 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. • Don’t let your kids swim unsupervised even in guarded areas. • Don’t swim alone. Use the buddy system so that someone always knows where you are so they can get help if needed. • Don’t overestimate your swimming ability. Stay in chest-deep or less water to insure you don’t get stuck in water over your head. • Don’t rely on flotation devices. • Swim parallel to shore if you want to swim long distances. • Don’t swim against the current. Swim across the current to escape the pull. • Always swim sober. • Don’t dive into unknown water or shallow breaking waves. Always go feet first.
Beach Prohibitions: The following are prohibited on all beaches: – Possession or consumption of alcohol – Glass (bottles, containers, etc.) – Littering – Indecent exposure or nudity – Disorderly conduct – Disturbing the peace – Unauthorized vehicles – Fires and fireworks – Shark fishing – Horseback riding or motorized driving – Removal, harming or harassment of any hiltonhead.com

RECREATIONAL PATHWAYS GUIDE
The Town of Hilton Head Island provides nearly 60 miles of public pathways and nature trails for the enjoyment of pedestrians and cyclists.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ON THE PATHS: • Obey all traffic signals and pathway markings. Stop signs must be obeyed for safety. Bicycles are vehicles and must obey SC traffic laws. • Travel the pathways at speeds that allow for the safety of pedestrians and other users. • Never ride within the roadway against traffic. State law requires bicycles to drive like all other vehicles. • Do not ride on roads when a pathway is available. • Ride single file and keep a safe distance from other bicyclists.
please move off the pathway. • Most sections of the pathways are not illuminated. If you must bike at night, please wear light-colored clothing or carry a flashlight. Bicycles must have a red rear reflector and a headlight when biking at night. • When approaching slower pathway users from behind, please sound your warning device, or call out, “Passing on your left.” Always pass on the left. • Bicyclists should always wear a helmet, especially children 12 and under.
• WATCH OUT FOR MOTORISTS! Motorists must yield to pedestrians and bicyclists within marked crossings, but they may not see you.
• Make eye contact and use hand signals. Assume other bicyclists and motorists don’t see you. Hand signals tell motorists and other path users what you intend to do and will ensure everyone’s safety on the paths.
• Yield to pedestrians. When resting or stopped,
• Be courteous, alert and predictable.

Golf on Hilton Head: A Case for the Month of July
By Doug Weaver, Director of Instruction, Palmetto Dunes Golf Academy Actual fireworks aren’t the only things electrifying the air in July. Finding a challenge that excites and absorbs you, moves you and makes you want to be better changes everything. My suggestion: the game of golf!
J - Junior Golf
Junior golf is popular now because the kiddos are out of school and ready to explore and discover a little more independently. Junior classes and private lessons can catapult children of all ages to new heights in their self-confidence.
U - Unlimited Benefits
Time outdoors, exercise, increased brain plasticity. Movement, fun, motivation. Parents and grandparents are spending quality time with children of all ages while making memories and developing character and new skills. Strangers are greeting each other on the fairway and bonding over a shared passion. Couples are finding new ways to relate to each other. It’s all happening out here on the green!
L - Love of Achievement
So much is accomplished and achieved in golf training. Success breeds more success and competence leads to assurance in other areas of life. For example, the over-the-water shot can devastate a golfer’s confidence. In lessons, we focus first on the process that creates the desired result. Then we breathe through the nose, identifying any tension in the body before stretching it out. Then we swing, trust it and let go. What a great feeling! 62 Island Events July 2021
Y - Youthful Joy
I have people telling me all the time that they used to be able to drive the ball a lot further and asking for help. When they take a lesson, they find that they can significantly improve their driving, all with less effort than they were putting in before. You know what I hear the most? “Why didn’t I do this ages ago? I feel ten years younger!” Here on Hilton Head, there are endless ways to improve your game. Try the state of the art facilities at the Robert Trent Jones Top Tracer Driving Range, which has no equal in South Carolina. This is the premier place on the Island to practice your swing and cool, shady spots abound. See you there! North Carolina and South Carolina PGA Teacher of the Year, Doug Weaver is the Director of Instruction at the Palmetto Dunes Golf Academy. He conducts “Where Does the Power Come From?”, a free interactive clinic and demonstration every Monday from 4-5 p.m. at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course. Volunteer for a free lesson and some will win prizes! Call (843) 338-9598 or (800) 827-3006 or go to www.palmettodunes.com for more information. hiltonhead.com

ANGLING FOR JACKS
attack your bait or lure!
Article and photo by Miles Altman, Bayrunner Fishing Charters From a distance, it looked like a clump of reeds sticking out of the calm waters of Calibogue Sound. But there are no reeds in Calibogue. Drawing closer, the “reeds” were moving and dark shadows followed beneath. These were no reeds — they were big jack crevalle! What had appeared to be reeds were actually second dorsals, barely breaking the water’s surface as they cruised the Sound looking for prey. Jack crevalle inhabit our waters in summer, smaller ones often schooling with Spanish mackerel and bluefish. The bigger ones tend to school on their own, moving with the tide, back and forth between the ocean and the sounds in search of food. This pattern has made them a dog days’ favorite, as they often weigh upwards of the thirty-pound mark and are second only to their cousin, the amberjack. Amberjack can average fifty pounds or better and are found offshore more than their smaller cousins…but both are formidable opponents on the end of a line. The most common way to target jacks is by stalking. Boats cruise up and down tide or rip lines looking for the schools of big jacks. Other than the illusion of “reeds,” anglers look for groups of large “v” wakes or dark spots. Once the jacks are spotted, the angler must be positioned within casting distance and present a live bait or an artificial — swimming or popping plugs both seem to be effective. It’s very exciting to watch a thirty-pound fish 70 Island Events July 2021
Once hooked, even on heavier tackle, jacks will put up an extended, brutal battle. One fish we hooked (blindly) on a light tackle took more than two hours and four miles before we finally caught him. And that was only after several attempts at charging him with the boat when he surfaced! Pound for pound, you will be hard pressed to find a tougher fighting fish than the jack. Early morning is best for hunting jacks in the Sound, then moving out further to the sand bars and shallows off the beach as the boating traffic increases. Jacks can be skittish but once you are hooked up, it’s game on!
