This was not actually on the to-do list that I planned prior to going on vacation. It was only when I realized I didn't need to spend the morning of the 5th in Savannah to finish up everything that I had wanted to do that lead me to look on the way at something else to possibly do or see prior to my needing to catch a flight home. And that's when I found Brookgreen Gardens. Absolutely amazing! Between all the different flower gardens and sculpture locations, there was a ton to see and do. They also have a zoo of sorts to wander through. And if that wasn't enough, they had a whole section depicting the area as it was when it was a rice farm. I think I took nearly as many pictures here as I did in each of the cities I visited. Additionally, every single employee there was absolutely wonderful. Most of them gave me little tidbits of information that made for a perfect visit. If I ever manage to get back down to the area in December, I am definitely going to go check out their Night of a Thousand Candles. I was told that there are floating candles in the ponds and displays including candles as well as carolers strolling the paths. It sounds absolutely magical,and I'm a bit sad that I have no relatives living in the area so I could head over there more often! This may have been one of my favorite things on the trip and has reaffirmed that sometimes I need to stop planning everything to such an extreme and just to go with the flow.
