Second Summer Outing: Filoli
For his birthday, Brian got a membership to Filoli, a mansion and garden in San Carlos (I think) built by a wealthy Irish immigrant over a century ago. It's beautiful. Really amazing. Anyone who visits us and wants to make a trip, it's totally worth it. It's a huge mansion complete with ballroom, butlers pantry, extensive gardens, and embroidered tapestries. It's like a European palace, only Bay Area style. You can learn about the history here.
It was really hot today though, so we didn't see everything. And we only got a few pictures, only outside. But since we're members we can go back whenever we like!
