"The House of Happy Walls."
A few artifacts Mr. London brought back from his many travels.
How cool is this!
There is even a bee in the upper-left of the photo.
Laura, she reminds me of a kewpie doll. ;)
"Wolf House" -Jack's dream home.
He had the home built mainly from stone, so it would be fireproof and remain standing "for a thousand years". Unfortunately the home was destroyed by spontaneous combustion from a pile of linseed oil-soaked rags that had been left by workers -(source). Jack passed away before he was able to rebuild.
What a magnificent home this would have been..
Catching rain drops. :)
"The Winery Ruins"
The eucalyptus trees were awesome looking.
The lines on the trees are made from dripping raindrops.
Gotta love this man!
Each pig family had its own area.
"The Feed House"
The acorn woodpeckers have been busy.
Standing on the dam of the lake.
An empty lake.
Seeking refuge from the rain. Lunchtime!
As Laura said, we were wet from the tip of our noses, to the tips of our toes!
Our lunch spot. Under the eve, not the picnic table.
Camera lens a bit fogged up - makes for a cool picture.
More cool eucalyptus trees.
On the drive home, we took a detour through the now defunct Mare Island Naval Shipyard.
