Paradise can be found at the Meditation Gardens in Encinitas, which is just 30 minutes north of downtown San Diego. When life is stressing you out, take a break, close your eyes and meditate. Then open them and take in the wonders – the giant fish, the fountains, the palm trees, the foliage and beautiful flowers. Breathe deeply and inhale the fragrance of the freshest flowers. Look beyond and see the ocean. Feeling better? You should end up with a smile on your face! So, go ahead and try to find your Paradise to put the smile back where it belongs.

But now, I need to add three more pictures to the collection, and these were not taken by me – but by my 11 year old son, Luca. It looks like I have some competition in the field of photography! Luca took these pictures at Swami’s Beach in Encinitas.
So what do you think? I think he’s onto something! Do you know he already won a competition at his school a few years ago with a wonderful photograph taken in London. I’ll have to show you it sometime.
