Our friends Paul and Gloria took Sue and I to the Marion Square Farmer's Market. It was a beautiful fall Saturday with lots of produce, and artisans. Didn't take too many pictures partly out of respect for privacy, partly because I was too busy looking at the art. Beautiful stuff. It reminded me how much I enjoyed showing my own art at fairs.

...Another stop on our travels, was to see the Angel Oak on John's Island. I told our hosts that I was interested in finding some old southern trees, and they delivered. This one was around 400 years old, and has the following stats.:
65 feet tall, 25.5 Feet in Circumference, Creates 17,000 sq; Feet of Shade, Largest Limb: 89 feet long, 11 1/4 feet in diameter.
You can see the little dots of people in this shot.

I was in search of some old tree with Spanish moss. Had to trudge around the James Island marshes, being careful not to wipe out in the muck and drop my gear. Having grown up across from the marshes of Wollaston, Mass, I have experience falling in waste deep mud. Good times! Just ask my mom.
Anyway, I escaped nice and clean, and ended up finding the trees I was looking for.
