THE PARKING LOT OF HUNTINGTON GARDENS






Lately I've been hanging out lots at Huntington Gardens, mainly because I scored treasured readership privileges at their Library. It's a lovely place to write as everyone is intent on their work, and the grounds...Lord God, the beauty.

One recent morning I went to 8:15 Mass at Sts. Felicitas and Perpetua, then motored on over. Before going in, I parked at the far end of the lot and sat in my car savoring an almond croissant and listening to the birds.

This is some of what I gazed out over from my humble perch.

    1. Hey Karin! I haven't checked out the Reformation exhibit yet but did a quick tour around "Visual Voyages" yesterday after working for a bit in the library--pretty spectacular.

    1. I had the camera set to "Vivid" so the blue is even bluer than blue--nonetheless, yeah, the sky here can be pretty breathtaking--all year round!...
