Night of a Thousand Candles - Brookgreen Gardens

Brookgreen Gardens, Pawley's Island, SC
We skipped work early enough to beat the traffic and headed up the coast to Pawley's Island for the Night of a Thousand Candles festival at Brookgreen Gardens. I'd been to Brookgreen sculpture garden of course but this was our first visit to the holiday festival and it was a bit hit. We got there at dusk and got the lay of the land before all the candles were completely lit. It gets very dark. We had a little drizzle but not enough to spoil the mood.

We sipped a glass of wine, wandered the gardens and enjoyed a seafood dinner in the food tent. There were two entertainment tents and bagpipers under the trees. It was all a success and very well done but our favorites were definately the children's garden and the avenue of oaks with the hanging lights from the limbs. There were a lot of people there but it never felt too crowded or loud. It was lovely.
