The most amazing tree I have ever seen! Said to be one of the oldest trees in the United States. On Johns Island. A great day trip and then stop by the Tattooed Moose for their duck club sandwich. Also recommend the Wild Olive, The Royal Tern, Fat Hen and Low Tide Brewery.
Its a giant, beautiful tree; it’s very nice, serene and a great place to take pictures.
