Excellent reflections there. Those sea lions were a surprise.


Sallie - At first I thought those birds were real and then I realized they weren't changing position in the photos! What a green world.

Love sea lions!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.


OMG, dearest Sallie;
When I saw the pictures of this post of yours, I felt the Japanese atmosphere in the Shore Acres Gardens. Oriental garden is included; I'm SO happy to see you could enjoy the sense of Japanese in the gardn♡♡♡ I guessed the birds must be cranes and I loved the lantern in the pond♡♡♡
I wish I could have the chance to hear the roar of sea lions with you♬♬♬

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*


da kann man sich wohlfühlen Sallie

I never made it to Shore Acres to walk around, but I did drive to the end of Cape Arago and saw the sea lions.


Love your photos!



Look at those good looking birds. Lovely to find a beautiful Oriental garden in USA.


I love to visit parks and garden and this one seams to be so interessant... with the roaring of the sea lions : never heard it !


Oh, how I would love to visit here, and I so enjoyed your photos of the Oriental garden, Sallie.

I just adore Asian gardens with their lush green foliage and oriental feel. These shots are beautiful.

What a pretty spot. Gosh, I may need new glasses, I thought the birds were real at first glance! LOL


A wonderful series of photos Sallie, loved the garden and what a sight all those seals must have been. Great post!

Lovely green reflections and graceful birds. Enjoyed your trip to London. If you go again, try living in Kent, visit Sissinghurst Castle restored by Vita Sackville West and diplomat husband
Harold Nicholson. There is a fascinating biography of her by Victoria Glendinning. I lived in a flat in Earls Court until I emigrated to U.S. with husband in 1960.


What a beautiful garden, it's nice to have parks like that. There are very few, if any, gardens like that where I live.

Such a scenic garden. Love those birds in the first photo. And such pretty reflections. A great place for wandering and photography.
