Winchester Mystery House
Or Part III: What I did on the Second Day of My Vacation.
Alternate to the alternate: What I did on Mothers Day Posted on Fathers Day.
This was my second time at the Winchester Mystery House. The first time there was during the holiday break in 2008, when Michelle and I decided to go on the road trip that forever sealed our BFFness. Aw, friendship.
I’ve been back in the Bay Area at least twice a year every year since then, but never felt the need to go back to the Winchester House. It’s kind of one of those things you see once and don’t feel the need to visit again after a few years. It’s not like anything is going to change or any new! information! will be unearthed, you know? Well, except that now photography inside the house is verboten on account of some big Hollywood studio doing some film about Sarah Winchester, and the owners not wanting to get sued or somesuch. Whatever, Hollywood. You big needy baby.
And then, right across the street from the Mystery House, sat those mid-century domes. After some google searching, it turned out that they’d just close a couple of weeks prior. Such a shame to lose those beautiful buildings.
