In the Morning we went to Goose Island State Park.
The park was established on land acquired from private owners between the years 1931–35. The Civilian Conservation Corps built the earliest facilities.
The park is home to "The Big Tree", a Southern live oak (Quercus virginiana), thought to be over 1000 years old. It has a circumference of 35 feet (11 m), is 44 feet (13 m) in height and has a crownspread of 90 feet (27 m).
Although it is located on the seashore, there is no designated swimming area at the park, as the shoreline consists of concrete, oyster shell, mudflat, and marsh grass. Instead, the main park activities include camping, birding, fishing, and boating.
