Phil had told me about the Rotary Club of Rancho Santa Fe which meets Monday noon at the Rancho Santa Fe Inn. This is an old 1923, posh inn built to provide accommodations for prospective land buyers in the early days of Rancho Santa Fe's development. It's one the Historic Hotels of America and Conde Nast Johansens Recommended. The Rotary sign at the hotel is a modest bronze plaque. I arrived in suitable style having borrowed Gillian's red Jaguar convertible. The meeting was very interesting with an author describing his book about how he escaped from the Nazis, and Russia during WWII, emigrated to America, and became an engineer with NASA developing the Apollo Simulator used to train Neil Armstrong. Our friends are building another home in Carmel with an ocean view. Lifelong golfers they will be close to Pebble Beach. That evening we spent several hours in the Theater showing slides. I was very gratified after showing 200 of my pictures, when Gillian asked "Is that all you are going to show." Naturally I showed a bunch more. Today's photo shows the view of the garden from the View.
