Even Better Jackpot From Nature! (And various stonemasons and gardeners etc.)

So, I went to Harkness Park (like, a few months ago, with this silly German student who did jiu jitsu with us) and took some pics. I just scanned them (yay for technology!) and so, without further ado, here are some pictures of my favorite park in the Northeast. Click on a pic for a bigger view.

The above pic was taken from the inside of the sunken garden, where they sometimes have poetry readings etc.

This here Lion, guarding the back porch of the mansion.

View (taken standing precariously on an unconvincing stone wall) of the ocean -- the beach is right there, about a ten minute walk down this hill.

Part of the various strange little decorative things lining the walls of the mansion.

Stone steps, leading to one of the many entrances to the OTHER gorgeous garden, which has fountains and flowers and rocks, etc.

Giant humungo tree trunks (the German guy I was here with decided he was more monkey-like than most of us, and he climbed about forty feet up in this tree, which scared the crap out of me.)

There's a neat little garden area off to the side with this cool tree canopy thing. This picture is from inside the little cave these trees made, looking out and up through the leaves.

Pretty-looking urn-thing.

Taken standing outside the walls of the bigger garden, looking in through the stone wall things.

Great pictures! I love how all of the shots have this greenish/brownish hue to them. They almost look antique.

I visited Harkness a couple of years ago and remember just loving it!
