My new ‘favorite place to visit‘ — close to home.

Second visit in 53-days, I am bummed we didn’t go earlier since I got ‘Membership’ when we visited, for the very first time, on July 18, 2017.

A delightful place — both inside and outside, with the hikes, waterfalls, carriage houses, flowers, mushrooms ….

A paradise for a camera toter.

Highly recommended. It is now on my list of places to take visitors.

Suffice to say I have 400+ pictures from today. I will NEXT post the pictures and that will be a treat. Promise. Enjoy.

Taken in the full-length mirror used by the millionaire who had it built Thomas Gustave Plant.



Taken in the rearview mirror of the TROLLEY BUS that you have to take from the Carriage House to the Main House. I cropped it because the image showed some of the other passengers — rather too well.


Both pictures taken with my seldom used Sony a6500.

The Distinctive, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec Died This Day 110-Years Ago; September 9, 1901.

Though his name might not readily come to mind, there is no question that is work is distinctive and widely known. I am sure many people associate Parisian Can-Can with his posters.

I am “OK” with his work. He is not in my top 30, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate and admire his work.

During my 18-year association with Paris I got to know Montmartre, the focus of much of his work, very well. So that is another connection we have.

Until I was doing this post I had no idea that he was physically disabled much of life and died at 36. Wow. 36! Just think how much more he could have done if he lived to be at least 60.
