Kazoo Factory Tour

The Kazoo Factory
Part of the factory tour in Beaufort, SC was to build your own Kazoo. Did you know the kazoo was invented in Macon, GA. Saw lots of antique kazoos and unusual instruments.

Angel Oak Tree

Angel Oak Tree
A stop at the largest know live oak tree.

Charleston Tea Plantation
The only American tea plantation, just outside of Charleston. Nice little plant tour with video and lots of tasting. Did you know tea plants can live up to 100 years. Just the new growth is harvested and they can get almost a dozen cuttings in a season.

We had to try the boiled peanuts



  1. I tried boiled peanuts in downtown Chicago at Christmas time. I wasn't impressed, how 'bout you?

  2. I love the graceful look of the live oaks. You are in a lovely area with so much history. I have never tried the boiled peanuts, they just never appealed to me enough to try them.

  3. I usually don't comment unless it's positive. Does that answer the peanut question.
