On our final day in Charleston, we kept things relaxed and low-key. We woke up slowly, grabbed some pastries and coffee from Wildflour Pastry, and relaxed in their patio area for a while. I ordered a mocha and a blondie, and Steve ordered a (gigantic) sticky bun with pecans. They were some of the best pastries I’ve ever had. If you’re ever in the Charleston area, I recommend you stop in.
After filling up on coffee and sweets we set out to Johns Island to see the Angel Oak Tree. This was one of the things I was most excited to see during our trip because it has been around for an estimated 400-500 years (possibly longer) and is over 66 ft. tall and 28 ft. in circumference. This tree is thought to be one of the oldest living things in our country and it’s an absolutely beautiful sight to see.
Steve and I just stood outside the fence in awe. We couldn’t believe that we were standing in the presence of something that has seen so much of Charleston’s history. It was breathtaking and it really put things into perspective.
After we left Johns Island, we decided to take a walk through downtown and the French Quarter again while the weather was so beautiful. Rainbow Row is so pretty to see during the daytime.
