Church Hill Candlelight walk 2016 ....

Last night we went over to my sister's home in Church Hill
had a few drinks, ate a few snacks and then
lighted our candles and headed out to do the annual
candlelight walk to Libby Hill Park

We listened for the bag pipes
and found the crowd waiting in front of one of the historic
churches in the area

the bag pipes were lined in small Christmas lights

Once the walk started, they played beautiful music
we stopped at one point and they played Amazing Grace
as they laid a wreath in memory of our
fallen officers.

the walk continued to the park which over looks
our beautiful city

There we sang Christmas carols
we were starting to feel the cold and getting tired so
we headed back to my sister's home and 
hung out for a while having drinks.

I really wish the pictures had turned out
the homes along the walk are old renovated homes that
date back to the late 1800's. They were decorated so beautifully 
most all with fresh greenery, lots of ribbons and lights.
The gas lamppost were so beautiful all along the way
and all of them had red ribbons attached

It was a really fun night and we look forward to next year
