Meander Around Airlie: Gardens By the Sea

When the weather's fine and we have a yen to venture a little further beyond our beloved Sunset Beach, Wilmington has a plethora of delightful places that we return to again and again.  One of these is Airlie Gardens.  Right near Wrightsville Beach, it's about an hour's drive from our condo in Sunset Village; and well worth the time.  The Gardens are impressive, dating back to the 1880's, featuring their 467-year-old Oak tree, and acres and acres of both formal and educational gardens surrounding some magically beautiful lakes.
