The almanac says spring does not begin this year until March 20; but with the weather we have been having around here, you could have surprised me. It was almost summer-like around here over the weekend. Since Tanya’s RA/RAD has not been bothering her lately, she has wanted to take advantage of the great weather and the lack of pain by spending more time outside. Sunday we took another trip to the South Coast Botanic Garden on the Palos Verdes Peninsula in Palos Verdes Estates.
The South Coast Botanic Garden is 87 acres of trees, flowers, birds, lizards, squirrels and a pond. At least, that is what we have found so far. On prior visits we were pretty limited as to how much exploring we could do because the garden has a lot of hills and the grades were too steep for her to be able to walk up and down them. For her to be able to carry her camera with a heavy lens and an external flash while walking up and down the hills was quite the fete. She is really enjoying being pain free.
