Outside Hilton Head News

Pluff Mud

A lowcountry Spring is an olfactory celebration. Stroll along one of Hilton Head’s many waterfront boardwalks and your nose might be entertained by a whiff of Carolina Jessamine, the tang of smoke from a BBQ smoker or a hint a salt air. But there is one scent that trumps them all, especially at low tide. It is the smell that makes visitors wrinkle there nose in confusion and even emit the occasional “Ewwww…what IS that?”. It is the smell of our Pluff Mud. A unique substance, ranging in texture from a clay-like density to a fluffy chocolate mousse like consistency, pluff mud is quite literally what the lowcountry marsh eco-system is built upon. Made up predominantly from decomposed Spartina grass, pluff mud is the product of decay. This slimy, viscous sediment is also where the majority of the small critters…

Shrimp Season Spikes!

September in the Lowcountry is a great time to get outside, take advantage of cooler temperatures and eat some great seafood. It’s at this time of year that the popular white shrimping season hits its peak, and everyone has a great opportunity to see, catch and eat these delicious little animals. Classification of “shrimp” is a hot debate in the scientific community, with wide disagreement on the classification of various species. The term “shrimp” is generally used to identify crustaceans whose bodies are designed for swimming rather than walking. Shrimp have powerful swimming tails, but delicate walking legs, unlike their cousins the crab and the lobster. Different species of shrimp are found in waters around the world, in both freezing arctic waters and balmy equatorial regions. Regardless of their locale, shrimp form a crucial link in the aquatic food chain; supplying…
