We were out the door by 8:00 AM in order to beat the heat and explore the Japanese Tea Garden. Little did we know what wonders awaited us.
The Garden was spectacular. We felt as if we stepped into a tropical paradise complete with waterfall, stone bridges and an amazing pagoda.
The Garden was once a limestone quarry and the original 1880 cement kiln and chimney remain.
The “village” once populated by Mexican-Americans who worked in the quarry was delightful.
The lily pond was filled with brightly colored Koi.
J..h had fun taking pictures of the Garden.
The crowning glory of the garden was the Water Fall…
We spent over an hour walking the trails and enjoying the beauty.
As we left the girls had the rare opportunity to meet a real princess visiting San Antonio from her far away Kingdom. They couldn’t have been more excited and I think the “Quinsinneta Girl” was more then flattered.
