Time to Say Goodbye | Kiawah Day 3

Alas, as much as we would have liked to stay there forever, our final day at the Sanctuary had to come sometime. If any of you plan on taking a trip out to Charleston, I definitely recommend going the extra distance out to Kiawah to stay at the Sanctuary. It’s like being in a completely other world.

We started our day off with breakfast once again at the Jasmine Porch.

Omelet, Fresh Strawberries and Mini muffins…

After breakfast we did a bit of walking around…

We decided to enjoy our room (and our balcony with it’s gorgeous view) until the noon checkout time. (As I said, while away it’s important to enjoy your hotel room because if you’re staying at a really beautiful place, in a lovely room, why not enjoy it?)

After check out, we headed back into Freshfield’s for some much needed Starbucks and a little bite to take on our journey from Ladles before heading back to the mainland where we would make one unexpected stop… at The Angel Oak located on Johns Island. The tree is believed to be between 400-500 years old and many of the branches are low to the ground. We noticed that several of the largest branches have required extra support.

    That tree is truly amazing. I remember seeing a picture that Sarah took a couples years back. I would definitely like to visit there.
