Getty Villa, Malibu, California

I had a wonderful opportunity to visit the J. Paul Getty Museum and Villa on Saturday with two very special friends.  We had a wonderful day visiting and touring the amazing grounds of the Villa.  Shared below are pics of the estate.



Yes, that is the Pacific Ocean you see between the trees.  Breath Taking to say the least.
Beautiful Lily Pads

More Lily Pads and Koi and I think gold fish

 Riding the wineskin...


Also toured an ongoing glass exhibit of Molten Glass Antiquities.

The J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Villa in Malibu opened on January 28, 2006, after the completion of a major renovation project. As a museum and educational center dedicated to the study of the arts and cultures of ancient Greece, Rome, and Etruria, the Getty Villa serves a varied audience through exhibitions, conservation, scholarship, research, and public programs. The Villa houses approximately 44,000 works of art from the Museum's extensive collection of Greek, Roman, and Etruscan antiquities, of which over 1,200 are on view.

All in all a wonderful day all around....I hope you enjoy the pictures.
