It's not JUST about what I had for breakfast...

Friday Round-Up

I went down to the rose garden at Balboa Park today.  Did not find what I was looking for, but there were a lot of pretty roses.  Was not as rosy-smelly as I would have thought, though.


The white roses are Gourmet Popcorn.  I do not know what the red ones are.



Another angle/cropping, another image.



Since I didn't find what I was looking for at the rose garden, my back up plan was to stop by the Marston House.  I did find what I was looking for there, and it was my 2,000th.  I got a congratulatory email from the CO (cache owner) just after logging my find.

So here are some pics from around the estate.



Long red brick chimney.  I was going for some kind of artistic selfie, as the kids say, here.



Too much sun.



Well, so much for art.



These gutters look like copper, I wonder if they are?  Very antique-y looking!



I guess you can bring your dog in, too.



I love the stately pines.  If you visit the Wikipedia page for the George W. Marston House you will see a photo showing the house with no trees around at all!



Well, that is an unfortunate branch, I did not notice that!



I did not take the tour, but one could, I guess.

Some will be interested to know I drove on the freeway there and back.  It wasn't too bad.


I went to Albertsons afterwards and bought a bunch of stuff, mostly what was on the list I forgot to bring, but I did forget the oatmeal.

Ta ta for now!
