This is the ruins from the original chapel that was destroyed in an earthquake. The niches held statues, one survived, of Mary. I have a pic of it further down. Several people lost their lives in the earthquake.

Aimee and I were able to go to a concert at the Hollywood Bowl. We saw a guy named Dallas Green as an opening act. I enjoyed him. Then Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals came on. Apparently lots of people know and love him. I had never heard of him before I bought the tickets, but I love going to the Hollywood Bowl, so I got them. It was a fun show. These pics I took from the jumbotron screens. We weren't anywhere near this close.
Just a few more photos from Aimee's and my trip to the Huntington. We went through the Japanese gardens. But unfortunately, the heat and humidity kept us from checking out the Chinese gardens and conservatory, both of which are new and I haven't been in.
This shaded bamboo walk was pretty.
Entrance to the Japanese gardens. I took some photos of the amazing bonsai trees, but didn't seem to download them.
Statue of Diana
Oliver Cromwell. Not necessarily the best of persons but certainly influential. Now that I know I am a distant relation, had to take a photo.
We checked out the European Art in the mansion house. I have always liked this painting "Sarah Siddons as the Tragic Muse".
We had high tea in the Tea room. I should have taken more pics than just the scones, but was too busy eating.
In addition to art, the Huntington is known for it's library. They have one of the original Gutenburg bibles. This illustration is from a page of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales.
