Every year, this sweet Sea Island reveals another part of itself. Every year, we fall a little bit more in love.
Perhaps it is the mystery of the Island landscape, the unique contours of its spits and marshes, its tidal creeks and wild animals roaming free. Perhaps it is the history, the long, slow cultivation of something rich and deeply pleasant, family traditions, and heritage. Perhaps it is the people. The Kiawah community is engaged and involved, full of good neighbors and thoughtful citizens grounded by the essentiality of the Island. These parts of the whole are familiar and absolute, and there exists an intimate relationship with the people and the place.
In this twenty-eighth issue of Legends Magazine, I hope to catch hold of the something that so attracts us, the enigmatic element of Kiawah Island. I spoke to and worked with so many kind, generous, happy people in the making of this edition, and I am, again, honored to contribute to this extraordinary community.
