Hilton Head Island, SC Real Estate Professional: October 2009

Tropical Fall on Hilton Head,SC

The exercise of cutting the lawn for the final time, raking leaves, putting them in 135 plastic bags, the hayrides, wearing coats under Halloween costumes.........oops, rewind!  Though most of us came from just those images, our new home doesn't involve most of the former memories.  We do though, have great weather - actually some of the most stunning of the year!

Fall brings subtle changes to the lowcountry of Hilton Head.  Fall view on HHIMarsh grasses, spartina, begin to turn yellow, then golden, and finally brown.  The red-winged blackbirds continue to fly around and the marsh birds wade to find a different size of fish.  The bush called the beauty berry has bright lavender berries, the hollies are swarmed by cedar waxwings, and the gum tree leaves are tinged with red.

 Fabulous convertible weather too - and the cooler evenings, in the 50's, bring oyster roasts and gathering around the fire pits.
