Luxury Personified at The Sanctuary on Kiawah Island, South Carolina
At the top of the elegant staircase leading to the East Wing is the "Ocean Room":https://kiawahresort.com/dining/the-ocean-room/ that offers gourmet dining. Gregg, the head waiter provides such wonderful descriptions of each dish I was constantly changing my mind. Gregg is so persuasive I was not surprised to learn that the restaurant sells more bottles of the digestive drink Underberg than any other place in America.
Paradise Regained on Kiawah Island, Charleston
Alligators are popular residents of this island and I saw several on my bike ride. One was sleeping on the lawn of a house, another, lying on the bank was keeping a watchful eye on me as I crept closer to take a photograph. As I was standing by a lake composing a photograph my attention was drawn to an alligator just below the surface of the water three feet in front of me. It was so large I took one hasty photograph and fled back to my bike.
