The last weekend saw the weather take a break from the rain and the storms with a couple of warm and sunny spring-like days. So we headed out to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park after lunch. The first stop was a pretty lake where the kids had fun walking among the large number of birds on the lakeshore.
Then we went to the Tulip Garden which is located near the west end of the park. We parked a short distance away but the walk to the garden was scenic with bright green meadows and some pretty flowers.
The Tulip Garden was located at the base of a towering Dutch windmill. The tulips had not all bloomed yet but the garden was cute and pretty. There was a wedding taking place there too.
After some hot tea and snacks, we headed back with a brief stop at another nice lake. The bonus here was a small but very pretty waterfall and a nice stroll along the small creek that led to the waterfall. This was another fun area for the kids as they jumped on the rocks and walked by the creek.
This first outing of 2010 was a fun way to spend half a day and it was hopefully just the first of many more trips this year.
