The second fundraiser for the Spanish Moss Trail held at Breakwater Restaurant on Sunday, May 4, was a sell out. Actually, it over-sold out, showing the popularity of both the Spanish Moss Trail and special events at Breakwater. This one featured dozens of delicious Spanish tapas prepared especially by Chef Beth Shaw along with Sous Chefs Skye and Megan for the occasion. Plus, several yummy Spanish-themed drinks were served. Money raised will go toward connecting the next segment of the rail trail from 15th street in Port Royal to the existing segments.
Founder of the nonprofit Friends of the Spanish Moss Trail and volunteer Executive Director Dean Moss said that if all goes as planned and the county finishes their segment on schedule, that everyone will be able to bike, hike or stroll from Port Royal all the way to Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort by the end of the summer. What an accomplishment! And big thanks go to Breakwater owners Gary and Donna Lang, Beth Shaw along with the staff of Breakwater, and the great local band Blue Mudd, and to everyone who attended this event for their donations and contributions to the building of this great addition to our community.
