Tranquility

Copyright 2009 Monte Carlo Daily Photo. All rights reserved.

Monaco for its tiny size has several beautiful gardens. This is one of my favourites - the Saint Martin gardens on le rocher. Not a big garden but peaceful, with a view of the sea, benches to sit on, sculptures everywhere - what more does one want?

"You owe it to everyone you love (including yourself) to find pockets of tranquility in your busy world.”
~ Bhagavad Gita

They tend to restore the soul, especially in an urban environment.

That's the one next to the oceanographic museum isn't it? Didn't we walk past it when I came in February? Didn't have time to stop though. The shadows, contrasts and peaceful atmosphere are lovely here.

Nathalie, absolutely right. Well done. That's the gardens - we walked past and looked down on the gardens, didn't we?

I take it that they are real people and not statues!
Every town should have at least one good park. fortunately we have several here & i think I've shown a lot of them.
