The Meditation Gardens in Encinitas

The Last Day of Fall 2017

 

I was out running some errands, including upgrading my Supra Key needed for a new listing in Temecula (a different county) in a couple of weeks, and stopped by the Meditation Gardens at the Self-Realization Fellowship in Encinitas in my way home. The Gardens are beautiful, and being perched on the bluff above the ocean also offer spectacular views of the ocean far below.

It was a gorgeous day, the last day of Fall, and the gardens were pretty quiet, with only a few visitors. I don’t get to visit very often – it’s been a couple of years - but always come away with a sense of peace and tranquility after spending time wandering, taking photos, and just sitting for a few minutes. One might say these gardens are medication for stress. Enjoy the views.

So beautiful! We have snow today. It's been snowing since this morning and is supposed to continue until tomorrow. The only color I'll be seeing for a while is white!

Oh wow, I love this place. The photos alone are meditation - and medication. You are a wise man to take the time to stop in an rejuvenate your soul and spirit. D

Hi Gene Mundt, IL/WI Mortgage Originator - FHA/VA/Conv/Jumbo/Portfolio/Refi  Thank you.

Actually, I found myself mistyping Meditation as Medication several times! It must have been a sign!!

Hi Grant Schneider  - it's an interesting feeling that takes over. It really is a pretty place at different times of the year and wonderful to sit at one of the stone benches they have to relax on and gaze upon different areas of the garden. People are pretty good about being quiet.

Sounds like a white Christmas to me. We've been watching the weather and it looks pretty nasty for back East, and other parts of the country. Be safe!

Those are stunning scenes, Jeff.  To see flowers in bloom, and those koi enjoying time in the sun is delightful.
