About a 2 hour drive south of Oriental North Carolina, my home away from home, lies Airlie Garden, also known as the “Garden by the Sea”. Airlie Gardens is located in Wilmington, North Carolina. My first visit, but definitely not my last, was on a very cloudy spring Wednesday. When I arrived, the attendant told me it takes about 1.5 hours to make the trek around the gardens… I clearly blew that stat — as I arrived at 9:00 am and meandered with camera, 3 lens, and tripod until almost 1:30 pm…. only stopping because of the rain.
Airlie Gardens was peaceful, beautiful and lush — all 67 acres.
Lebanon Chapel, built 1835 on the grounds of Airlie Gardens.
