I think Laura and I concluded that we don't understand abstract art. We both thought we saw musical instruments in a photo only to find out it was anything but that. Also, how is a solid color canvas considered art? Thankfully there were a fair amount of fun pieces that we did appreciate, including this one.
Laura decided on Falafel King for lunch, so we purchased a gyro, garlic chicken sandwich, and hummus and headed to the lake for a picnic. It was fairly overcast, but every now and then the sun tried to pop out. While trying not to make a complete mess while eating, we enjoyed watching the sailboats and paddle boarders.
Our lunch left us pretty thirsty, so we walked further around the lake to the Tin Fish for some homemade lemonade. Yummy!
I'm not sure I could ever get tired of the sculpture gardens. They are such a great place to hang out, be goofy, and take some unique pictures. I'm still not sure how this optical illusion really works, but it's fun!
As a part of the 25th anniversary of the sculpture gardens, the museum commissioned artists to help build a mini-golf course. Each hole was unique and a lot more challenging than we expected. It didn't matter how many strokes it actually took you to get the ball up this pinball machine. In the end, it was based on chance as to where your ball landed and how many strokes you were assigned. Of course, halfway through the 8 holes, it started to rain, so we got the added challenge of wetness.
I forgot to take a picture because the food was so good, but Laura has a great recipe for artisan bread that she has turned into pizza crust and so we took advantage of her great baking skills and made some homemade pizza.
