I really really like Barbeque. However, not just any old BBQ will do. Slow cooked over wood; oak and/or hickory with an assortment of vinegar and mustard based sauces on the side, that's what I call real Barbeque. Now I also happen to have a rather strong affinity for live blues performances as well. So when it was brought to my attention that I just might have the opportunity to experience both at the same place and time... well now.
Located on Hwy 17 in Murrells Inlet just south of Myrtle Beach and North of Pawleys Island, BrookGreen Gardens offer a plethora of scenes, trails, activities, and the largest exhibit in an outdoor setting of figurative sculptures by American artists anywhere in the world. It's unique as it is beautiful, majestic, and serene...

Wings being cooked up right there on location were from restaurants all over the Charleston and Lowcountry area : Sticky Fingers, Queology, Rusty Rudder, Melvin's, Smoke Food Truck, Kickin' Chicken, The Loophole, Paisano's, Bohemian Bull, East Coast Wings, Midtown Bar and Grill. I did my best to eat at least a couple of wings from each. Needless to say, I got full within a relatively short time.
When I have the opportunity to write about, and feature places that, relatively speaking, very few know about; I am genuinely thrilled. Picket park is just such a place.
The history of Pickett Park and Pitt Street Bridge alone is worthy of recognition and esteem. Now couple that with the park and it's public access to the Inter-coastal waterway along with the Charleston Harbor for fishing and Kayaking, and you have an area of magnificent history, sites, and recreation. Whether bicycling, Kayaking, fishing, jogging, or simply out for a stroll, this park, and the surrounding area has something for everyone.
