yesterday, Q and i visited the meditation gardens and it was gorgeous. the weather was perfect; great temperature, slight breeze of air and yet just warm enough. the photos don't show it, but there were easily a few dozen people walking around or sitting in silence; meditating or simply enjoying the day. if you're ever in the encinitas area, stop by the these gardens! if you enjoy some relaxation and a great view of the ocean, you will love it.
