It seems quite random that some dude from Atlanta eventually decided to go live by the coast and then has this private island experience he offers for guests. I am talking about Captain Andy Hill, the owner and director of Eagle Island, and probably the one that will ensure you get off Darien and onto the 10 acre private island via his boat.His background as a fast food franchisee seems boring compared to his work now coming in from St Simons, visiting guests in Darien, checking on his guests at Eagle Island, cooking his famous low country boil if requested, and ensuring your time as his guest is simply splendid. Dinner the first night was the low country boil with fresh blue crabs caught off the dock using chicken bait in yellow crab traps. If you haven't seen that process before then its quite interesting. I have eaten crab but never seen it caught or cleaned for consumption. Andy and his colleague Laura to a bunch of prep done beforehand and then it was off to a big pot for some seasoning and cooking. I also learned that the mature males are called Jimmy and the mature females are called Sook (of particular interest to me as my current time-suck involves binge-watching True Blood where the lead female character's name is Sookie). The males are a fantastic blue and easily recognizable. The females don't dawn similar blue but actually have clearly identifiable red tipped claws. They tasted delicious and it was quite fun enjoying shrimp and crab for dinner, eating with our hands, at a table with new and old friends and good camaraderie.
