On Friday as the All American Council ended, I took the time to make my first and only excursion into Seattle itself.
There I visited the Japanese Garden which is part of the Washington Park Arboretum.
It is considered to be one of the best Japanese Gardens in the entire United States.
It was a spectacular place to visit.
Everywhere you turned to look there was beauty.
The autumn colors were magnificent.
The beauty made me want to stay all day, but I had only about 90 minutes to enjoy this most magnificent garden.
The weather was not perfect, but typical for a November day in Seattle – cool with a very light rain misting down. Cloudy skies but the sun peaked through just a glimpse now and again.
It simply was good to be there and to give thanks to God for such glorious beauty.
You can see the entire slide show of the photos I took a the Japanese Garden. Just go to my flickr account and go to the Japanese Garden set of photos. Once your on that page click on the tiny “slide show” button above the thumb nail prints. You can see all of the sets of photos I took in Seattle in my Seattle Collection (which currently is still being constructed). In the Collection just click on any of the icons of the sets and then click on the “slide show button” above each set of thumbnail photos to view the photos of greatest interest to you.
