Beachside Bites & Brews: Chow Daddy’s

I love to eat! Anyone who knows me can attest to my love for food (and cooking). I’m a southern girl who can’t resist collard greens, cornbread, boiled peanuts, grits and all the other stereotypical southern style foods. Although my palate has not changed, over the past 5 years I have made a shift and gravitated more towards foods that are probably considered on the healthier spectrum such as kale, quinoa, brussel sprouts, salads…lots of salads…and I’ve always loved any and all seafood. That is just a long winded explanation for why I love this next restaurant… Read More

Is it Inappropriate to Lick My Plate Clean?

Being in the vacation rental business, it’s not uncommon to work 7 days a week. During the busy rental season, which typically runs from mid-March through mid-October on Hilton Head Island, the work week for me is Monday–Saturday, although I’m on call 24/7, which leaves me Sunday for family, relaxing and adventures. A normal Sunday for my husband, fur baby & I includes a day on the boat cruising the intracoastal waterways and catching up with our boating buddies. Our “Sunday Funday” this past weekend started much later in the day than normal, so we decided to turn the trip into dinner by boat. So our little family set out for Shelter Cove Marina with empty bellies and no exact plan of where we would end up for dinner. Read More

Beachside Bites & Brews- Watusi

Watusi, located on Pope Avenue near Coligny Beach, is one of my “go-to” spots when I’m looking for a quick, casual, yet very satisfying breakfast or lunch. It’s a local’s favorite because there’s never a long line or wait for a table (or I should say there has never been one the numerous times I’ve eaten there) and the food is delicious! There’s a wide selection of comfortable seating from tables, couches & chairs both inside and outside, or you can belly-up to the small bar. Read More

Flying High With Island Head Watersports

I first must begin with the definition of Island Head because…well, it rocks! Island Head is “a state of mind achieved by following one’s passion in the right place with the right people; if it’s only for a day or a lifetime…” This could not sum up the owners of Island Head (Michael, Taylor & Jessica) and their passion for enjoying the beauty & adventure this island has to offer any more perfectly.
