In honor of National Museum Day, which was yesterday, I put together a “photo diary” from today’s field trip to Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. We visited two attractions: De Young Museum and Japanese Tea Garden.
We first went to the De Young Museum, where I fell in love with a bunch of pretty paintings.
I especially adored the poem, written by an elementary student, that accompanied this painting.
The cursive in this journal fascinated me. It is owned by Thomas G. Fowler, an artist who kept a personal journal with entries about his travelings and pages of his own drawings. If only I could read it…
Can we take a moment to appreciate the teardrop art in the ceiling? It’s stunning!
And of course, I had to take a picture of this Georgia O’ Keefe painting.
Right before we left the museum, we made sure to visit their Observation Tower, which overlooks San Francisco. You could even see the Golden Gate Bridge from up there!
Next, we walked to the Japanese Tea Garden. We instantly felt calm and peaceful when we entered through the gates.
This bridge was incredibly steep…
My favorite moment of the day was our little hot tea & mochi break, where we totally de-stressed and sipped our issues away. Bliss.
And I couldn’t leave without visiting Buddha!
