Another Pasadena adventure: Huntington Gardens
On Sunday, we went to Huntington Gardens. I hadn’t been there since I was in college, so it was fun to rediscover it. I now have a new fascination with Chinese gardens.
The Children’s Garden was also for the young at heart.
My brother-in-law is sprinkling rocks into the metal grate: it makes a beautiful, musical sound, like wind chimes on steroids.
Sometimes when I feel like acting out, I go beyond the “Staff Only” sign.
Then we all hugged a tree. Well, they hugged the tree. I took pictures.
I guess I was feeling rebellious today. Please note the chain fence in the foreground.
Trespassing on the mausoleum.
Such a rebel.
Dad was being a free spirit.
Traipsing down the path.
The “Terrace of the Jade Mirror” – the round gates represent the full moon, which is often symbolized by a white jade mirror in Chinese literature.
And I was just ornery today.
Brother-in-law communing with the rock that looked like Admiral Acbar’s head.
It’s a trap.
Searching for the Wish Fish.
The Wish Fish: if you catch it, it will grant you a wish.
Happy Father’s Day, Dad!
