Kiawah was obviously sad this was our last day, as we had a few rain showers this morning. After about 9:30 am though, the clouds cleared out a bit and the sun shone through. Justin and I went for a morning walk to the beach, and ran across this friend in a pond along the path.
Some workers were making repairs on a nearby home, and tried to point out a baby alligator that had been poking about, but alas, it must have skittered into the water and out of sight. This was the first and only alligator that we saw this year, which was a bit unusual.
Later in the day we walked down to the beach again, this time wearing swimsuits and carrying beach chairs and towels. The day was a bit windier than Wednesday when we were out, and Justin was thrilled to be able to jump and launch himself in the waves. We stayed out and were bowled over by wave after wave for almost an hour before relaxing, reading, and drying off in the sun.
We drove off the island to have dinner at Wild Olive, which was out-of-this-world good, of which Justin will review in the next post. As we drove back to Kiawah, bellies happily full, the sun was just setting, setting the sky aflame with reds, purples, oranges and pinks.
Goodnight and Good-bye , Kiawah Island. Until next time!
