There were so many things to see and do
on our trip to California. I have one last series of photos
that I would like to share before I move on,
though I have many others stored on the computer
to remember this wonderful trip!
We spent just one day in the city of San Francisco.
Some locals suggested that we take the
double decker "hop on, hop off" bus tour.
So glad we did!
What a great way to see the city.
Our favorite "hop off" location
was the Japanese Tea Garden in
Golden Gate Park.
marveling over the beautiful vistas
in every direction.
We enjoyed genmaicha tea and miso soup
in the tea house
at the heart of the garden.
The young woman at the cash register
offered me a tiny paper crane,
and the older gentleman who waited on us
told us the history of the gardens.
If you have the chance to visit this incredible
oasis of peace
in the heart of a bustling city,
I strongly recommend it!
Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you peace.
You can see Steve's colorful stroll Out on the Prairie.
