Soul of the South Tradition Highlight


Sea Island’s annual Easter celebration paints the landscape in a riot of spring colors. The day begins in gentle shades of orange, pink, and purple as hundreds gather on the beach for
a sunrise service. As the sun climbs higher, splashes of crystalline blue mix with the azure sky as children play at the Beach Club. At the shore, families build bunny-themed sandcastles as primary-colored kites and sails flap and flutter in the breeze. Pink azaleas, yellow daffodils, and paperwhite blossoms are in bloom all across the island. They’re a perfect complement to the brightly patterned dresses, seersucker suits, and vibrant prints on display as residents and guests dressed make their way to various celebrations.

Easter is an opportune time to pause and appreciate the turning of seasons before a whirlwind of summer activities take hold and sweep us right through to Labor Day.
