Just before the two RV Gypsies walked a portion of the River Dike Trail at Edisto Memorial Gardens, they took a few photos along the way.

Below: There were several informative signs, but most of them were in need of some loving care, and they were hard to read, so Karen Duquette only photographed two of them. She tries to post some history of the areas that she visits.

Below: After the two RV Gypsies left Horne Wetland Park and walked a bit further, they came to a waterfall within Edisto Memorial Gardens.

Below: View of the waterfall taken from a small platform in the parking lot above it. It was impossible to get a photo from top to bottom. The water at this point was flowing from under the parking lot, so the two RV Gypsies do not know where the source of the waterfall begins.

Below: From the parking lot above the waterfall, the two RV Gypsies came upon Memory Garden.

Below: The Angel of Hope Project is another unique feature of the Edisto Memorial Gardens. There are over 90 Angel sculptures around the U.S., but this is the only one in South Carolina. The Angel of Hope is dedicated to the children that have lost their lives through natural causes or accidents. This monument and garden is a place for healing and meditation for the parents, other family members, and friends of these children. The Project is a joint effort of the City of Orangeburg Parks and Recreation Dept. and the Angel of Hope Committee, raised funds for the Project. In addition, to the Angel of Hope sculpture, the area features beautiful landscaping, brick pavers, and dedicatory wall and an area for recognition bricks.
