Golden Gate Park: The Japanese Tea Garden

2 Feb

Now that I am a local, I want to act like one.  Tourists might think Golden Gate Park is something for them… a place to tour museums, ride bicycles and let the kids blow off some excess energy.  But it is the same for the locals as well: an escape.  Its lush green gardens and remote corners, much like Central Park, beckon the weary professional to release their stressors and escape for a few moments.

I did exactly this on Sunday!  I went to the Japanese Tea Garden for a little R & R, writing, reading, and some green tea…

This video sums up my mood (melancholy) and the beautiful scenery as captured by my little point and shoot camera (not too shabby, huh).  Enjoy!

    Wow! Some really beautiful shots in here! I found this piece moving and contemplative. Makes me want to go there myself when I come up for a visit.
