Washington, D.C.Oh the memories, how do you choose just one? We came here every summer! Building sandcastles on the beach with my grandfather. Biking, as fast as my legs could go, to Camp Cloister for the day. Getting all dressed up for family night out at Bingo. The memories really add up. Sea Island was easily one of the best parts of my childhood.
Atlanta, GAI grew up coming to Sea Island, so of course we want our children to have that same experience. Not to mention, it seems like the only place where nobody gets bored. We all go kayaking through the tidal pools together in the quiet morning light. Then the kids love to spend their afternoons at the beach club. They come back to us grinning ear-to-ear, Gold Brick Sundaes dripping from their fingers. The kids love it and it’s almost like we get to be kids again, too.
San Fransisco, CAI remember the freedom of feeling like I could do anything at Sea Island. One minute I was a biologist watching a baby sea turtle break out of its shell, the next I’m a pastry chef pulling freshly baked cookies from the oven. A bunch of us even went out after dark, making our way around with a compass, learning survival skills. Fishing with my Dad, golfing with my Mom. Sailing with my brother. From a very early age I learned how to not be afraid to try new things. And dream big.
Short Hills, NYEaster is my favorite time of year at Sea Island, hands-down. I always remember getting a brand-new dress, a big bow for my hair, and getting all dressed up for the Easter egg hunt. We would line up to see the Easter Bunny and grab handfuls of sugar cookies from the solarium. The weekend itself was so much fun, but it also meant that summer vacation wasn’t very far away.
Dallas, TX Sea Island is magical at Christmas time. From the toasty fireplace in the Cloister lobby, to the warmth of the Sea Island sun, you couldn't ask for a better place to celebrate with your family.
St. Simons Island, GA I was excited when my boyfriend Evan arranged for us to enjoy drinks at The Lodge to listen to the bagpiper play at sunset. It's such a beautiful tradition! We were meeting friends and decided to wait on the lawn for them to arrive. As we walked onto the 10th green, Evan pulled away and dropped to one knee. I hardly remember what he said as he proposed, but I must have said, "Yes!" because everyone around started cheering when he put the ring on my hand. The Oak Room had champagne waiting when we came inside, and we toasted with everyone that came through the door. The moment was perfect, and perfectly captured at one of the most majestic destinations in the world! Sea Island will always hold a special place in our lives.
