Contents Water Festival Issue 2013
Summer is my favorite time of year, Beach time. In my youth I would use these days to catch some waves and some rays, The Sea Islands of the Lowcountry have some of the best beaches anywhere. We have the iconic beauty of Hunting Island, which offers some of the most unspoiled beaches in the country. It’s a place where you can watch something as beautiful as the pelican perched on a tall tree stump, majestically spread its wings and fly. You can watch as it gracefully swoops down and scoops its prey of fish from the surf. Dolphin often surface close to shore and sanddollars are plentiful near the shore at low tide. Fripp Island and Harbor Island boast ocean breezes enjoyed from beautiful homes and condos. You can't beat the beautiful palmettos, white sand and warm Carolina waters. You can also enjoy hunting for sharks' teeth at the Sands beach in Port Royal. Now is the perfect time to enjoy the Lowcountry sun and sand. So bring your beach chair and umbrella and kick back and relax. But don't forget the sunscreen!

Spray a flour tortilla evenly with butter flavored cooking spray. Cut each into 8 wedges and place them in a single layer on a large cookie or baking sheet. Sprinkle the wedges evenly with the cinnamon sugar. Spray each wedge again lightly to set the sugar in place. Bake for 8-10 minutes until lightly brown.
