My Visit to the Tremendous Angel Oak Tree

In an attempt to regroup and heal a fraction from the heinous and disappointing ramifications of the past year and a half or so, a good friend and I decided to attempt to get away for a few days…I haven’t really been able to relax much because…well, the obvious reasons concerning the world currently, but I have managed to find a few moments of enjoyment.

On Sunday, I finally got to visit a tree that I’ve been in love with for years and wanted to visit: the Angel Oak Tree in John’s Island, SC, and it was beautiful beyond words to see in person. Pictures don’t do her justice, but here are some taken on my visit. (photos not taken by me are noted)

Imagine all this beauty has seen in its hundreds of years of life…

A final hug before parting…until next time….

I will be back home tomorrow from my attempt at a vacation from the real world. I’m still trying to recharge because no matter what, there’s a lot to be done when I get back home, and not all of it is writing related.

I want to live in a world where we can have trees that are hundreds of years old, and people to appreciate them. So take a moment, take a breath, enjoy, and get to work. I will be.

Have you ever been to the Angel Oak Tree, or visited another place you’ve longed to see? Please share, I’d love to know!

  1. I’ve never been to the Angel Oak Tree. The great pictures you’ve taken and shared on this post have made me realize that I may have to add that to my list of places to visit. That is if I can find that non-existent list, of course. 🙂

    I decided to go on an Irish trip, a while back. I was so happy to see lovely landscapes and epic castles. Well, mostly epic castle ruins, to be honest. I now long to visit the British isles. As you can see, I’m not a fan of the sun. 🙂

    1. I highly recommend paying it a visit. It really is indescribable to be able to see and hug a 500+ year old tree…no words.
      Oh that sounds lovely! I would love to go on a trip like that some day myself. I’m not a fan of the Sun either, being allergic and all, we don’t get along.
      Thank you so much for sharing, Alex! 🙂
