In walking around the gardens we found this water design done in a huge piece of metal art.
you can see the winding path up. We did not intrude because I think that is where the artist lived or had his studio. But, the gardens were very interesting.
A bronze bust up in the foliage under HUGE TREES! And another free form piece of art in the garden.
And this work was featured as you walked in the front door of the Gallery.
A couple of the blown glass jelly fish hanging from the ceiling These were a couple of them that caught my eye as we drove by. The colors were amazing. The artist that did them is from Oregon. And... you could be the proud owner of one for $4,800.00 each. Of course you know that one would not be enough... Not a statement made. And since you should not decorate in even numbers... you would need 3 RIGHT? Well, $15,000.00 for jelly fish was out of my reach. But they were interesting.
This is the view of the Pacific ocean off the deck of the Gallery. When Susan & I were there in April we ate at a great place across the road from here & enjoyed views of the BLUE, BLUE water that seemed to go on forever. Well, not this time. This fog is called June Gloom. It is natures way of trying to cool off the country side with the moist cool air off of the ocean. It hangs over for about a mile or less. After that it gets very HOT inland this time of year. Amazing how nature tries to take care of things isn't it. And what a difference just a few months make. In April when we were there everything was the most GLORIOUS GREENS. And in June all the countryside is BROWN!
