Autumn Lowcountry in the

As the summer days become shorter and the air becomes more and more brisk it is that time of year again, summer’s transition into fall. Even though the time for taking a dip in the water is over there is still a lot to do. Fishing, crabbing and shrimping are at their best in the fall. Pecans come into season. Quiet walks on the beach are different without the summer crowds. The Waterfront Park takes on a different tone absent the summer heat and the bench swings along the waterfront provide a peaceful and relaxing view of the river.

My favourite poem is the one that starts 'Thirty days hath September' because it actually tells you something. - Groucho Marx

Make sure to visit the many festivals and bazaars that go on in our area this time of year. There are so many wonderful events in the fall that celebrate all that is wonderful about the Lowcountry. Check out our “Calendar of Events” to see what is going on each month. Autumn in the Lowcountry is filled with many wonderful things. Though we rarely see red and orange leaves, the Lowcountry does experience its own unique color changes, as the green marsh grass changes to a rich golden marsh savannah. Autumn brings many changes the leaves and the grass change color, the climate changes, the time changes. Those of us who have tired of the summer heat look forward to cooler weather only to once again hope for the warmth of summer.
