My mother, my youngest daughter and I recently visited San Francisco in celebration of my mom’s eightieth birthday. Before we went, I asked everyone to list what they most wanted to see. At the top of my daughter’s list was Golden Gate Park. Of course she wanted to visit the amazing California Academy of Sciences (which is located in the park) but she also mentioned the Japanese Tea Garden. I’m so grateful that she did, because visiting this beautiful garden definitely enhanced our trip.
