Not So Wordless Wednesday: Kiawah #1



As much as I hate it, I must move on from St. George Island.  Not to worry, we found somewhere almost as good.  We'll be hanging out at Kiawah Island for the next three weeks then move on up the road to Charleston after that.

Kiawah Island (pronounced kee-wah) is a barrier island in South Carolina, about 15 miles south of Charleston.  Most of the island is operated by a gated golf resort community (five world class courses!), the most famous being the Ocean Course that hosts a number of PGA Championships (one just wrapped up a few weeks ago).  You can either stay at the one hotel on the island called The Sanctuary, or rent a town home or one of the kajillion dollar homes.  Or buy one if you want.

The island is decidedly DEEP SOUTH, with marshes and alligators everywhere.  It was the type of place, that if you have the cash, you really wouldn't ever want to leave.

I would love the golfing, but wouldn't be so enthusiastic about the alligators. Very pretty though!

That looks like it would be a beautiful place for a canoe trip, providing that the alligators don't get you!

Alligators?? No thanks!
