Lili'uokalani Park and Gardens

I just discovered that Google Earth has many of the walking paths of my favorite park in their street view. A friend just taught me how to link there, so here’s a link.

That should take you to the street in front of the park. You can go around the streets of course, but I hope this is pointed at a torii, a sort of doorless gate arch. (If I’d linked to the sidewalk, you’d be too close to admire the torii. {wink, Smile}) If not, turn around you find it. Then head straight towards the torii, then thru it into the park itself. I think you’ll pretty much be stuck to the handicapped accessible walkways, like I am in real life, but do it anyway. This is supposed to be the biggest Japanese-style garden outside of Japan. So you can only see the tide pools, bridges and many of the stone lanterns from a distance. There’s still a lot to see here. {Smile, BIG SMILE}

  1. That is a beautiful garden, especially the water with the little stone bridge. Thank you. :)

  2. Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed it. It's a favorite of mine, too. {Smile}

    You mean the little arched bridge with the concrete railings and the fitted stone below? {Smile} That's the most popular spot for wedding pictures in town. It seems like half the wedding couples who get formal wedding pictures that aren't all in the studio end up on that bridge for at least a few shots... and somehow a few of those shots get into most picture studios' advertising, too. {wink, BIG GRIN}
