Happy Spring from from Huntington!
(That's Huntington Botanical Gardens in Pasadena, not Huntington, West Virginia where I spent my freshman year at Marshall University. They're both pretty green though.)
Here's some statues we saw:
You can see the tour we took in my Flickr album. I'll give you the condensed version here.
First, we got there around 2:00 and paid $46 (yeesh) to get in.
Then we followed a path. . .
. . . and ended up at a fountain. . .
and saw some fish.
Then we went to a children's garden.
And the kids got soggy. Then we got lost in here:
And regrouped and went to the Chinese Garden.
Where we saw stuff like this:
Then we found a bamboo forest.
And a tree like this:
and a whole bunch of cacti.
Then it was time to go. We drove through Pasadena:
and searched for a restaurant. We stopped at this one:
It was the best dinner I've had in a long time. Lobster potstickers, blackened Tiger Prawns with cashews and mango sauce, chocolate souffle' and coffee. Mmmm. The staff was awesome too. I highly recommend it.
Then we went home.
