Griffith Observatory

Dear

Toured this observatory with Bill and Bron on Friday. What spectacular views of the city below.

Enjoyed meeting Roberto for breakfast and was good to spend time with Floyd and Joyce and Russ. Russ is struggling to keep up with all the care Phil needs. Also enjoyed seeing Bud and the family at Anglica’s home. Hope all is well with you.

Love, Tom

It sits on the southern slope of Mount Hollywood where it commands a stunning view of the Los Angeles basin below. The Griffith Observatory provides information on astronomy and related sciences to the public.

Fort Ross

Dear

We visited the Russian fort in California yesterday. It has a beautiful view of the sea, and lots of cannons. There were a lot of rifles in this building too.

Love, Tim

Kuskov House, Fort Ross State Historic Park, California. This building is a reconstruction of the residence of Ivan Alexandrovich Kuskov, who founded Fort Ross in 1812 and was the first manager. Ross was a settlement of the Russian American Company until 1841.
