Doesn’t that just sound like a grand place to visit??!! Well it is, and so much more. After a harried day in the city, I was on my way to a full-blown anxiety attack. My hubba hubbie lovingly and gently guided me to the Chinese Garden of Friendship.
It was the most serene place I’ve been to in a long time. I loved it! It’s like a slice a heaven amidst total and utter calamity. I needed it – we’d been in town about 5 weeks and I was feeling tired, lonely and just harrassed after being bumped and pushed and prodded in the hubbub of downtown.
To top it off, we enjoyed a nice pot of tea overlooking the water that flows through the middle of the garden. There are hundreds and hundreds of gorgeous koi living in the garden. Here are a few picks – just multiply this by a gazillion…
One more reason to appreciate my hubba hubbie – he takes good care of me. Needless to say, I’m enjoying Sydney and Advent and finding lovely things to appreciate about living here.
So a few more pics before I skidaddle…
I’ll butt in one more time to tell you (my one loyal reader) that this was an open window looking out to a wall in the garden with a plaque on the outside wall.
The window makes a perfect framed picture with the greenery added for an amazing effect. I will try this if I ever have a window looking out to a wall. Now I’ll say zai jian!
