Botanical Garden



6/28/2019: After the boat trip, Barbara and I decided to go to the botanical gardens in the next town over. It was pretty easy to get near the gardens, but the final mile, not sure where we went wrong, but we did not encounter the bus.

The gardens were pretty large, and mostly empty of people considering that it was a bit rainy.

The bus going back to Vina del Mar was much easier to catch.
