The Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden – Part 1

If you read the last post you saw the rather ugly travel day I had en route to Miami.  Well, on Friday, I had a much prettier day.  It was partly cloudy and cool.  Now that’s Miami-cool, not Colorado-cool, it was 75 wonderful degrees, but still not exactly beach weather.  So the girl and I visited the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Coral Gables instead of South Beach.  It was a fantastic little break from shitty travel days and the hustle and bustle.  Beautiful, serene place for a stroll, but I suppose pictures will speak louder than words about the place, so enjoy.

The view that greeted us as we walked through the gate.

Lots of little modern art-ish sculptures around....

It was also a good place to play with the zoom lens. The girl on the other side of the lake from where I was standing when I took the first picture.

Refreshing after three hours driving through a snowstorm less than two days earlier.

Some crazy Platypus-lookin' turtle.

Come here boy.


If I had any idea whatsoever what this was, I would totally tell you.

Yours truly.

The view from one end of the Garden. Impressive place.

Well that’s all for tonight.  More coming tomorrow.
