Pulgas Water Temple – Redwood City, CA

Every day off is usually spent on a quest to seek out pretty things. Through researching on Yelp I found the Pulgas Water Temple! I packed a classic sandwich brown bag lunch and headed over.

Upon arrival, I discovered that this place is far less majestic than it appears in photos. I mean as beautiful as it is, the area is relatively small and there’s nothing really around it to visit if that’s all you’ve planned for a day. I can see how it’s a lovely setting for a wedding or wedding photos.

There was some construction on the waterway beneath the tower when I visited, undoubtedly it could have been more beautiful and serene without that going on.

Old ladies sat sunbathing in the grass at the end of the pool and an older gentleman that brought a beach towel out and passed out in the grass even though he was already a crispy golden tan. Unfortunately for me, there were a bunch of bicyclists sitting on the steps in the shade who wouldn’t move for me to take photos.

This place is beautiful, but if you’re doing a photo outing near here I’d stop by Filoli as well.
