First full day of my folks' visit: the Winchester Mystery House by day and City Hall by night.

Neither City Hall nor a particularly mysterious house--it's our house! My father in his RV. In front of a nice leaded window. My mom admires the inlaid floors and catches me snapping a picture.

My father heads to the fruit drying shed. Nice view from an inside courtyard. My father, the humming videographer. The front of the house. Nothing gets missed.

My mom catches a picture. Three-quarters shot of the front of the house. My father documents our visit to City Hall. As do I--surprisingly, it's our first time in City Hall as well, and it's gorgeous. My mom likes flags.

The grand Central Staircase. And inside the dome. I believe the building (like the Palace of Fine Arts) is always booked up with weddings. Immortalizing the capturing of a capturing of a moment.

My father runs out of steam. So, we leave City Hall behind and head to dinner at the House of Prime Rib.
