Jack London Historical State Park

Here are some of our photos from our trip up to Sonoma. The ruins are from Jack London's dream home which burned down before he was able to move in.

This would have been a courtyard pool

Jack London was an adventurer, dreamer, and author - 
I think he probably has a lot in common with my husband.

He requested that his ashes be spread on top of a large stone that remained from his dream home

On the other side of his property was a barn, a cactus garden, a vineyard, and worker's quarters. 

He seemed like a very interesting man. His wife must have been an interesting woman too! He was always learning and trying new things - even attempted to sale around the world in a boat he designed! (I was reminded of my Uncle Jerry a few times on this tour!)
