Yesterday a friend and I went to Golden Gate Park. We parked up by Stowe Lake, and wandered around quite lost. Her cell said to go right, mine said to go left. I said I wanted to see the de Young (I have a membership card and I needed to go to the bathroom) My friend wanted to know why, whenever I’d ask for directions, I’d ask for the Japanese Tea Garden. I said, The de Young and the Japanese garden are right beside each other; if you find one, you find the other.
Originally, we were supposed to hunt up the Conservatory of Flowers, but it seemed a long way, and I hadn’t brought a sweater (It was cold and windy. Lucky she had a grey hoodie; I only had a thin cotton top. Anyhoo, I’m kinda glad we never found the conservatory, because when I got home I looked it up on the map, and we’ve had had to cross the entire park, lengthwise.
The park was lush and green, and it felt good just to be alive. The eucalyptus trees (not native, I was told by a naturalist on a tour last month) smelled heavenly.
Here are a couple of trees I saw in the Park.
Stay cool, dear blog readers. Stay cool.
