While waiting for Hurricane Matthew to arrive we joined a group of folks from the Newcomers Club in New Bern for a trip to Airlie Gardens in Wilmington, NC. What a beautiful place. The weather was overcast and a bit misty at times, but it really was a great day to tour the gardens. Hurricane Matthew is not expected to reach North Carolina until Saturday with the possibility that it may turn out to sea before it reaches us. Until then we wait. Below are photos I took today while on our tour of the gardens. It really is a must if you make it to Wilmington.
