We've driven past these gardens many times and never taken the time to stop. This time, we made it a point to visit and we are so glad we did. This is a very extensive place with a wonderful diversity of plant life. The day we visited, it was a bit warm which made for a nice stroll through the gardens and along the coast line (the next day, it poured down rain so we were quite lucky). I would love to come back when the Rhododendrons are blooming as I'm sure it's absolutely gorgeous.
