I took this picture from the top of the Holiday Inn - looking over the Ashley River bridges to the peninsula and on to the Arthur Ravenel Bridge which goes to Mount Pleasant. Those buildings you see are just about as tall as they get in Charleston. No high-rises for us!

Whenever we visit Middleton Plantation we always make a point of going to see the cooper who works there. He is so entertaining and knowledgeable about the history of Charleston and the way of life on the plantations. Don't miss him when you visit!

We were riding in the little row boat at Cypress Gardens when I noticed how wonderfully tall and majestic the trees were! The sun was peaking out too!

The Angel Oak is on John's Island and is estimated to be in excess of 1400 years old. It stands 65 ft tall, measures 28 ft in circumference, and shades with its crown an area of 17,000 square feet. It's widest crown spread point-to-point is 180 ft, which is longer than any other live oak in the country. Its longest limb is 105 feetin length.
It is awesome to stand and look at it!
