Path of Life Garden.

Path of Life Garden

The Path of Life Garden is beautiful and reflective.

Path of Life Garden

It will take time to walk through this artisans' park and give each stage its due. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was fascinating in a New Age sort of way. Peaceful and fairly well-tended. I was there in October 2017, so no blooms -- but beautiful weather. The maze and the labyrinth were highlights.

Path of Life Garden

Not worth what we paid. I think admission has gone up and the maintaining of the gardens has gone down. It needs weeds pulled and flowers planted.

Driftwood Band.

Path of Life Garden

At the Path of Life Garden, make sure you find the very large band. And leave something for the Buddha.

Path of Life

This wouldn't normally be my thing but it was Octoberfest at the Harpoon Brewery (found in the same parking lot as the Path of Life) and the weather was so nice I decided to walk over there. It was a lot of fun. Really introspective and interesting. The hedge maze was fun and the interpretations of each 'stage of life' was worth seeing.
