This was taken leaning out of the Boathouse Pavilion. It could have been straighter but I would have fallen into the water..

Have a good weekend,


  1. Cascading water in Chinese and Japanese gardens make me feel energised which is in contrast to the peace I feel in other sections of these formal gardens. Have a great weekend from a fellow Aussie.

  2. This is gorgeous, Val. Why have my family never taken me there? Need to remedy that. Beautiful photos, especially Nos 1 and 4. Love it!
