I attended a Grand Re-opening Celebration of The Shops at Sea Pines Center last night. All Sea Pines property owners were invited to see the newly finished entrance at the center and all the renovations of the current shops. It was like Christmas in October.
This was truly a grand affair and celebration with white cloth tablecloths and the works. Those in attendance enjoyed a fabulous complimentary oyster roast… yes we shucked on the white cloth covered tables or they shucked for you. The Lowcountry bar-b-cue, baked beans and slaw was cooked right there. A real Lowcountry event within walking distance to Harbour Town. Unbelievable ! Fresh pimento cheese, chicken salad, tuna salad, crackers, and homemade cookies made by the new gourmet market that will open October 24. I can’t wait. It made my heart smile to see in this day and time when all we hear on the news and read in the paper or on the internet is about how bad the ECONOMY is.
It didn’t look like Sea Pines was hurting and it made me proud once again to live, work and play in a fine neighborhood on Hilton Head Island that cares for humanity and successfully does so much good for the community with multiple charitable events.
Last night’s event was all about rediscovering the good things in the heart of Sea Pines – The Shops at The Sea Pines Center at 71 Lighthouse Road.
I stopped in to say hello at the Sea Pines Market and Liquor Store and guess what they are about to add to their Junior Johnson Midnight Moonshine! A distillery of their own is in the works. They will be making a Hilton Head Moonshine to be called Hilton Head Lemonade! Go to www.syscodirect.com. They told me it was a Hilton Head secret….. that’s right so now you know. The Halloween cat is out of the bag.
The party continues tonight in Sea Pines with entertainment by The Headliners…
Now that the secret is out ….
Be sure and make a trip for yourselves to experience the glorious fall weather here. And witness the migration of the Monarch Butterflies to our beautiful Lowcountry!
