Photo Friday: Elizabethan Gardens in the Outer Banks

Elizabethan Gardens

After a refreshing lunch and short walk around downtown Manteo, N.C., last Friday, I kicked off my weekend in the Outer Banks with a visit to the Elizabethan Gardens.

It was a beautiful property to stroll and photograph with my roommate and travel buddy, Amanda. We paid our $9 entry fee, and then toured several of the gardens. Most notably, we saw the large statue of Queen Elizabeth I, an ancient live oak tree, a rose garden that contained a rose sent by Queen Elizabeth II from the royal rose garden at Windsor Castle, an ancient Italian fountain and many colorful blooms.

    • Thank you. It’s easy to take beautiful photos when the subject is as naturally beautiful as the Elizabethan Gardens.
