Postcard from Kiawah

Greetings from Kiawah Island, South Carolina!  Our family arrived on Saturday afternoon as part of a 24-person entourage (fourteen adults and ten children!) for my brother-in-law’s surprise 40th birthday party.  And yes, he was genuinely surprised and thrilled.  What a coup!

Sun drenched beach days are melding into barbecue nights with nature walks, kayaking, tennis, golf, and cocktails-of-the-week filling the spaces in between.  I snapped the above photo of the spectacular Kiawah River marshland during our lowcountry oyster roast and barbecue.  It does not get much more beautiful than this.
