we went to one of the loveliest spots in the south. brookgreen gardens has both plant and animal life, beautiful flowers, amazingly tended grounds, interesting history exhibits, and one of the largest outdoor sculpture gardens in the united states. and we ate some barbeque.
we visited the nearby town of murell's inlet (named for a 19th century pirate captain--ARRRRRR!) explored the marshwalk, saw loads of gorgeous seabirds, and (for reasons we never discovered) marvelled at a small offshore island full of goats! and we ate some barbeque.
