Angel Oak and Charleston Tea Plantation

This morning we took a shuttle bus to visit the Angel Oak tree on Johns Island. The Angel Oak tree is the oldest living thing east of the Mississippi. This tree is a "live oak" unlike the oak trees in our area at home.

This is what the leaf of a live oak tree looks like. It reminds me of a rhododendron leaf.

After our visit to Johns Island, we shuttled down the road to Wadmalaw Island to visit the Charleston Tea Plantation. I love all the Spanish Moss hanging from the trees down south.

We enjoyed a tour of the plantation and we learned how tea is made. Charleston Tea Plantation makes American Classic Tea which has been the official tea of the White House since 1987.

In the afternoon, we biked 16.5 miles around Wadmalaw Island then took a shuttle to our next destination: Beaufort, SC. We will be staying at the Beaufort Inn for two nights.
