A bit of an adventure
I went on a bit of an adventure last Friday. I flew to San Jose California just for the day, to visit the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum. I had been there once before, probably about 20 years ago and I wanted to experience the place again. The museum and the grounds are built like ancient Egyptian buildings and gardens and the museum itself contains the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts on display in western North America. I've always been fascinated by ancient Egypt.
When I planned the trip about a month or so ago, I was hoping for a bright sunny day for photographing the beautiful buildings and grounds but, nature had something else in mind. It was cloudy and rainy all day long but that didn't stop me from taking almost 300 photos that I now need to sort and edit. I enjoyed the day very much in spite of the weather and the long commute. It was a long day but, well worth the trip.
I'll have some of the photos and more information about the museum in about a week or so on my Sharon's Sojourns site but, for today I'm visiting one of my favorite places in St. Louis.
