A random little bit of Charleston

I love living in the Lowcountry and my favorite town in the universe – . Okay, so I don’t live exactly in , but close. Very close. Here’s a few pictures from my photo album. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

The magnificent Angel Oak is on John’s Island. It is estimated to be between 300 to 400 years old. It has a height of 65 feet and a circumference of 25.5 feet.

This is one of many beautiful alleyways downtown.

Cypress Gardens is located on a former rice plantation. It is a blackwater bald cypress/tupelo swamp. Some of the more notable movies filmed here include The Patriot, Cold Mountain, The Notebook, North and South, and of course, Thing.

A yummy batch of local blue crabs, no longer blue now that they are steamed and ready to eat!

A tidal creek behind Folly Island. It is my favorite and crabbing spot and I refuse to reveal its exact location!

  1. I love Charleston. And, Savannah, too. I just can’t wait for sister vacation this year because I will be visiting two of my favorite places!!

    You could build a mansion in that old tree…but why spoil it. It’s perfect the way it is.

    • On one of our sister vacation days, we might go see The Angel oak and then go to the next island over – Wadmalaw Island to the tea plantation and Firefly Distillery. Very inexpensive to go there, unless you buy something!

      • Whatever we do it is going to be fun!!! It’s such a beautiful part of the country with many things to see. Plus Folly Beach…yea!!!!
