The majority of tourists are gone and our little island town sits sleepy in the sun again. The weather is cooling already and breezes carry a hint of fall nip to come. Shrimp boats are bobbing on the waters gathering up the goodness from below. In a few more months oysters will be ready for harvest and people will be lined up in the winter chill around steaming oyster tables, feasting on our islands bounty.
On Edisto we have an amazing ability to go out and gather food from Mother Nature. We gather and hunt wild grapes for fruit and wine, shrimp, fish, crab, oysters, venison and turkey; all growing in plenty around our coastal home.
The tables are set and its time to eat on Edisto!
