I had lunch with my friend Susan today at the place where she has just recently started working - The Huntington Library. There are huge botanical gardens there, and after we ate, we walked the grounds soaking in the scenery. It is a lovely place and it had been years since I'd been there. The Huntington family was a huge driving force in Pasadena history (really the whole San Gabriel Valley) and there are more things named after them than you can shake a stick at, but this is without question the crown jewel of the family name.
I didn't take any of these pictures, by the way, because I'm having camera issues. You can thank Google for the visuals. These are all pictures of the Huntington. (Or at least that's what Google says).
I also made a pit stop at Trader Joe's, which was just as wonderful as it always is. Sadly, I forgot one of the things I specifically went for and will have to go back and do it again tomorrow. Oh, well. I guess it can't be helped.
Later in the day I went to Susan's house and ate cheesecake and visited with her family. And that's all I'm going to say about that because this one deserves a post all its own. Stay tuned.
