The Sunken Gardens was a tropical paradise. As soon as you walk in your shoulders drop. There were so many rare botanicals and everything was so beautiful. The trees were so tall that they created a roof for most of this outdoor attraction. We actually decided to go here on a whim and I'm so glad we did.
This tree looks painted but it actually grows like this! It's called a Rainbow Eucalyptus and I'm in love with it.
We planned to visit the Dali Museum and I found out that Thursday's the admission is only $10 after 5pm and the parking is free! I didn't take my camera with me because I was sure that I couldn't take photos inside (though I did sneak one photo of a cool illusion piece), and I was right although photos were fine outside of the galleries. There was a labyrinth outside which also had some cool pieces at the entrance. Lastly, if you don't know about Salvador Dali, he was a surrealist artist with some amazing paintings that will make your mind go nuts. He also had a really cool mustache which there is a sculpture of outside.

As far as the rest of our vacation, we ate well, drank well and enjoyed being off of work. We even saw a pirate ship sail by one day. The weather was surprisingly mild at night, so sitting on the balcony listening to music was my favorite thing to do.
So that's our vacation. As I mentioned before, I'm ready to go on another one. I'm thinking a long weekend around our anniversary maybe to a Bed and Breakfast. Have you guys gone on any fun trips this summer?
