Travel Time – Getty Villa – I

Queenie and Honey Man had to opportunity to pay a royal visit to the Getty Villa on a recent trip to California.  The Getty Villa is an antiquities museum and gardens nestled in a beautiful canyon overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Pacific Palisades.

The museum is fashioned like a Roman Villa with beautiful inner and outside spaces.  There is a beautiful formal garden (outer peristyle)…

Herb garden…

East garden…

And courtyard garden (inner peristyle)

The beauty of the art, architecture and gardens was truly a treat for the eye and a breath of fresh air after a hectic week and before traveling back to Queenie’s Hermoso Castillo in Arizona.

More adventures of the Getty Villa to come…

Have a great day!

Always, Queenie

Oh the Getty is truly gorgeous!!! It must have been a treat to visit!
(I used to live 15 minutes from there, can you believe it?) No, I should have asked, "Can you queenie believe it?)
I hope you're having a beautiful day--and thank you so much for visiting!!!

I love the Getty! It's about a two hour drive (on a light traffic day) from where I live. I'm so glad you got to experience it!

Blessings, Victoria
