Meet My Family

When I started this blog, my youngest was five years old and my oldest was almost seven. I always called the youngest the Wee One because he was a tiny little human until recently. He is now taller than me and almost as tall as his dad. My oldest who used to be known as the Imaginative One is now 17 and is the tallest grandkid, something he is proud about.

These photos were taken on Christmas Eve between the rainstorms of that day. Very rarely (ok never) do we dress alike, so these are rare photos.

Stay kind!

Have a magical day,

Angel Oak

Near Charleston, there is the largest live oak east of the Mississippi River. The Angel Oak is located on John’s Island. It’s reported to be between 400 and 500 years old.

It’s free to visit but you need to make sure you are following the guidelines especially the one about not touching any of the limbs. They want to make sure the tree continues to survive for future generations to enjoy.

We stopped there the day after Christmas. When we got there, there were people there but it wasn’t too crowded. However by the time we left, the crowd had picked up. I loved the fact I was able to photograph the tree without too many people in the way unlike how it is in the summertime. There are always tons of people milling around because this tree is a must see. During pre-Covid time, you could bring a picnic lunch and eat while enjoying the tree. Now, you have to be masked up, follow the directed signs to the tree, and are not allowed to eat at the picnic tables.

Enjoy my photos of the Angel Oak!

Stay kind!

Have a magical day,
Traci
