Bluffton Arts and Seafood Festival Time !

Fall is the best time of the year in the lowcountry featuring the Bluffton Arts & Seafood Festival !

October is the beginning of my favorite time of year here in the lowcountry.    The air literally changed last night from the end of summer to fall.  Time for less crowds, spacious beaches, beautiful sunsets and the best seafood and oysters in the world!

In celebration of that, the Bluffton Arts and Seafood Festival is happening all week long.  Check out all the events at culminating this weekend with the Street Festival on Calhoun St this Saturday and Sunday, showcasing our love for the lowcountry!  Hope to see y’all there!

Friendly Flipper

A friendly dolphin smiles at us after stealing our bait!

You never who you are going to run into, and make friends with here around the lowcountry.  On this occasion, it was a very friendly dolphin.  It was obvious he was used to boats and fishermen.   Probably some well meaning tourists and even locals, have fed him, but we highly recommend against that because then they tend to lose their ability to hunt for themselves and they also get injured getting too close to boat propellers.

We enjoyed his posing for the camera and his truly friendly smile from afar.   And the only food he got was the bait off the hooks he stole from us before we even realized it.   I think the smile was his ornery way of saying, “gotcha.”  😀
