I've been traveling to Wilmington a lot the past couple of months, which I am so not complaining! I find something new and unique each time I visit which brings me to my latest blog post and to introduce you to THE COOLEST adventure to date there. Internet World: Meet WalkerWorld.
WalkerWord is an organic artist retreat just outside of Wilmington in Castle Haynes. Starting out as a small log cabin on the river, it has now grown to over 3,000 square feet. Excluding the original cabin, everything has been repurposed or bought salvage. From beautiful garden areas, to an old wooden hot tub turned into a swing, this magical place is a goldmine for creativity. WalkerWorld was created by artists to inspire themselves and others- it certainly lives up to its purpose and more. Owner Allen Walker is a one-of-kind soul. His free spirt and kindness along with his warmhearted neighbors are felt throughout the area. Coming together to make Walker World the best it can be, you feel the love and care just radiating through this handmade place.
As you can imagine, when I arrived my mind exploded with a million ideas just like a safari browser with too many tabs open. My boyfriend who is also a photographer tagged along with me, we split up and started running all over the place like children on a playground checking out different spots. We would meet back up, talk over each other about the coolest thing we found, and split up again to adventure more.
