After a day of driving from Morro Bay to Cupertino, we just took it easy – sat back read a book or two and relaxed at my sister, Georgia’s home.
On Saturday night, we went to a fund raiser for singing group Lovenotes. This quartet won the international singing competition in 2013 and has been doing performances around ever since. Two of their members are in Georgia’s Sweet Adelines singing group – and they hold this event on an annual basis. It was a fun evening with these young women who have been singing together for the last 10 years – who started singing together when they were in their early teens (14 was mentioned) so lovely young women. The event was held at a private home and had a wonderful sunset view.
On Sunday, we checked off an item from Janeen’s bucket list – a visit to the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum. The Museum is devoted to Ancient Eqypt and was founded by the Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis. There were interesting displays and artifacts plus a composite replica of an ancient Eqyptian rock-cut tomb based on photos and sketches taken during visits to the area. We had to take a picture with Amonemopet, Royal Scribe as we have a similar picture taken at the Louvre in Paris.
Outside the museum there were several gardens, a fountain and areas to just relax.
After the Museum we rode over to the San Jose Rose Garden to get some garden time for Janeen. While there she discovered a number of roses propagated by the Huntington Library – Rose Garden head gardener Tom Curruth! What a treat to discover this in San Jose.
