California: Day 2: San Jose Area


On our second day, we visited the Emma Prusch farm in the heart of San Jose (note the freeway behind the house to the right).  This beautiful jewel of a park once was a farm, and is situated right in the middle of the bustling city.  Farm animals, Heritage fruit orchards, community garden spaces ... it was lovely.
We picked an orange and ate it --- WOW --- the taste was beyond words.

After lunch, we drove over to Overfelt Park to tour the Chinese Cultural Gardens.
Everything was so lush and green.  A truly beautiful place.

As we finished visiting the Chinese Cultural Gardens, the rainclouds were moving in.  So we decided to head to some near-by shops to get some souvenir shopping done.

Thank you so much for sharing your trip and photos with me! I am so glad that you were able to fit so much in during your days here in CA and I thought about you and the weather over the last week.

The redwoods are such an awesome experience and even though I have lived in CA my whole life, I still love spending time at the ocean's edge and watching the sunset.

Thanks for sharing CA through your eyes. :)
