The Sanctuary on Kiawah


The Sanctuary, Kiawah, S.C.

Six of my girlfriends and I took a day trip this morning, heading for lunch at the Sanctuary at Kiawah.

Wow. It is so beautiful. I know when they designed it, they wanted it to look like it had been there over-looking the ocean forever and they were successful. We had lunch at the Jasmine Porch, were treated extra specially by O.T. (who claimed the initials stood for Over Time) and were surprised with complimentary desserts before we wandered outside. I felt like I was walking through magazine pages.

If you haven't been, you really should visit. You tell them at the gate that you are visiting the Sanctuary. They have a few lovely shops and an ice cream parlor in the lobby. We stopped at Fields Farms on Johns Island on the way back for fresh tomatoes and peaches as if we were going to be hungry again at any time in the near future.

Time to go, kids. Man vs Food - Charleston is on the Travel Channel.
