Winchester Mystery House--February 21. 2019

The Winchester Mystery House (tm) is a popular San Jose destination for tourists from around the world. Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, the  sprawling 24000 square foot Victorian style house is in contrast with the gleaming glass and steel monuments to technology that populate the once farming region known as "The Valley of Hearts Delight." Despite the unseasonable cold (for Northern California) and a concurrent popular watercolor workshop, a full compliment of artists enjoyed house and gardens on a sparkling clear day.
