Kiawah Island is getting some star-studded exposure on social media this week thanks to two athletes-turned-broadcasters who are posting pics from the beach and golf course.
Olympic gold medalist figure skater Tara Lipinski, who owns a house on Kiawah, and former quarterback Danny Kanell, here on vacation, have both been posting photographs on Instagram and Twitter.
"Charleston will always have my heart," she posted with an Instagram picture of her beneath the live oaks at White Point Garden.
Kanell, the former Florida State Seminole quarterback who was drafted by the New York Giants, has 139,000 followers on Twitter and 1,500 on Instagram. "... the course kicked my butt" he posted from the Ocean Course.
Lipinski and fellow skating champion Johnny Weir recently received rave reviews for their skating and fashion commentary on NBC during the Olympic games in Sochi.
Kanell, who retired from the NFL 10 years ago, is an analyst for ESPN.
