April 2011 San Francisco vacation - Part 6 (Golden Gate Park - Japanese Tea Garden)

Previous San Francisco vacation posts

Day 2: Monday, April 11, 2011

Monday morning we [tried to] wake up bright and early to catch the bus down to Golden Gate Park so that we could get in to the Japanese Tea Garden before 10:00am (free admission M, W, F before 10:00am I believe).  Well...we tried, but missed our bus.  So we had to catch another bus (again with that great transportation system, there was another bus not too long afterwards).  We cut it pretty darn close, but made it there about 10 minutes to 10:00am.  Gates were wide open and we just walked on in. :)

What an amazing place....soooo gorgeous.  It doesn't quite compare to the Japanese Gardens at the Huntington Library that I recently visited, but it was pretty darn beautiful on all its own.  Awesome photo opps everywhere for sure!

This bridge here you could actually climb up and over it...like a ladder almost.  Really cute. :)

More from Golden Gate Park in my next post! :)

Just off of the photos, I think I may like this garden more than the Huntington!

Had no idea there was a place like this in San Fran! Now I really want to go back.
