Ever since The Elizabethan Gardens began a lighted Christmas tour I’ve wanted to see the Winter Lights in Manteo on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
Last weekend, my son and I met my sister-in-law, who lives on OBX, and took the tour. She said this year’s display is the best yet. Each year they continue to grow adding more decorations and lights. Like a kid in a candy store with camera in hand, I clicked away.
Click on the poinsettia tree to take a brief photo tour of the Winter Lights and the Manteo waterfront featuring the masted ship, the Elizabeth II and Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse. If you have a opportunity to visit the Outer Banks during the holiday season, the gardens are lit until December 30.
