Also, News on the November Contest & Kayaking from Maine to The Keys!
We are pleased to announce Don Gilliam as the winner of The King and Prince Facebook Photo Contest!
Don took an amazing shot from his Oceanfront room balcony of a dolphin jumping out of the water. The photo captures what our guests have been telling us for years-that they can literally sit on their balconies and watch the dolphins play. (Just think how lucky those people on the boat were!!) Don will receive a complimentary two night stay at our historic ocean front resort.
We had a tough time choosing a winner as we loved so many of the photos that were submitted. Michael Gowen of Southeast Adventure Outfitters posted two different photos from his kayak, one with the hotel in the background the other with a redfish that he had caught. It highlights some of the great activities to which our guests have access to from our hotel. Fishing, kayaking and nature tours! ….I wonder if he threw the fish back?
Laurie uploaded some photos of her family at the King and Prince. I especially love the photo of her husband and son walking on the beach. Family is such an important part of who we are and what the King and Prince represents. So many families from across Georgia come to the ocean’s edge every summer and create lasting memories here at our resort. We are so thankful that they choose our home and St. Simons Island to spend time with their loved ones.
I recently had the opportunity to meet an inspiring young couple- Dan and Bethany Cox. These newlyweds set out on the trip of a lifetime: To Kayak from Lubec, Maine to Key West, this had been a goal of Dan’s since he was a teenager. What they thought would take just a few months has turned into almost a year. With a stop off in Portland, Maine for the winter (I can’t even imagine trying to kayak those cold, New England waters in the winter!) they put their kayaks into the water in May to continue their adventure south. On October 26th, they made it to St. Simons island and took a rest right here at The King and Prince.
Dan and Bethany shared many stories with me….about the kindness of strangers, the lessons they have learned along the way and the amazing memories that have been made throughout their journey.
It made me wonder what memories and stories our guests have about our resort and St. Simons Island. In November we invite you post your favorite memory about The King and Prince or your favorite memory of St. Simons Island. All entries will be entered to win a complimentary two night stay for up to 4 people at our resort. To enter you must first become a fan of The King and Prince and then write away! I know my fellow co-workers and I look forward to reading about everyone’s memories.
