For Andy’s birthday, we all went out to the Huntington. First, the trip took us through the cactus garden, then desert ponds and down the Australian trails, leading us to the entrance to the Japanese section. The new area was open, and much more landscaping had been finished since the opening ceremony. Then, we found our way down to the pond and around the moon bridge. After resting under the wisteria trellis, we stopped by the Chinese garden, visited the conservatories and galleries, and finished our day seeing the Gutenberg Bible. Here, we parted ways, as the group to the Griffith Observatory and the Stinking Rose, and I attended Dr. Patzakis’s tribute dinner.
