Schools are back in session but I hesitate to call it the ‘end’ of Summer. For all of the hubbub and excitement of the high season there is an equal magic to living along the coast when the crowds thin out. The warm temperatures will be around for a few more months making outdoor activities on the water even more enjoyable. 

It’s also a wonderful time to visit the restaurants – with the all the same great fun, food, and music that you love with less of a wait at the door. 

Thank you to everyone – customers and crew- who made Summer 2022 another great season for the books. Over 20 years later and I am still pinching myself! 

Wishing everybody a healthy, happy, and fun school year!

All my Gumbo Love,
