Sherman Library & Gardens

 

Last Tuesday on my drive to Laguna Beach I spotted this sign and decided to stop and check it out. I peeked in and liked what I saw and then noticed that they also had a Cafe. It cost me $3.00 to come onto the grounds and get to Cafe Jardin.

I had a nice lunch in a great peaceful setting with a lovely view. After lunch my camera and I did some scouting and we really got our $3.00 worth!

 

 

 

 

Sherman Library & Gardens was founded in 1966 by Arnold D. Haskell and named in memory of Moses H. Sherman, educator and California pioneer.

The grounds are beautifully arranged and the Spring colors were gorgeous. The library focuses on the history of the Pacific Southwest and is a research library not a circulating library.

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

  1. Wow… what kind of camera do you carry with you? Ellen, I’m always amazed that you can come out with so many new discoveries while traveling in your home state!

    • I had 2 cameras with me this day. These photos were taken with my little Pentax Optio that fits in my pocket :0)
      Later I pulled out my big camera for taking photos in Laguna Beach.
      Pentax K-m/K2000 SLR Digital.
      Arti it really is amazing to start looking and seeing all the great spots there are around the corner… :0)

  2. Ah, Sherman’s Gardens. You got some good photos, and I see a lot more blooming than the last time I was there. I’ve always wanted to try the cafe but was never there at the right time.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. Yes, we depart on the 24th and are really looking forward to our visit. I’m taking my camera, of course, so hope to have lots of good photos to share when we return.
