Next Stop on the South Carolina tour

Another favorite of the conference was an afternoon and evening at the Riverbanks Zoo and Botanical Garden. This is a unique place - two treasures in one. The two parks are separated by the Suluda River (thus the name) but they are also located in different towns and different counties and are connected by a bridge spanning the river. I started out with a brief walk through of the gardens but since the zoo was closing earlier while the gardens was staying open later for our group I quickly walked the long winding road that lead to the bridge and the zoo. I'll post a few pictures from each here and put the rest under the cut.

Botanical Garden:
Please excuse the lack of buildings and structures as I tend to be looking down at the pretty flowers rather than the buildings (unless it is raining which it was for awhile and I'm looking for shelter). There were a few more in the new children's garden. I say that with tongue-in-cheek because though it was new and bright and I'm sure fun for the kids (add water and kids will come) it was lacking in the "garden" portion of the equation. It was more a playground and water park than garden but it was pretty anyway.

The day was a little cooler. The temperature ran in the triple digits the rest of the time. We were running between the raindrops that day. I finally got to use the plastic poncho that someone gave me while on a trip last year sometime. It's been sitting in the pocket of my suitcase every since. Lucky for me I decided to throw it in my backpack for this tour.

Looks like a great way to combine the two.

I love the bird-like flower. It's so pretty!

*hugs*
