Casita Linda

A Trip....

We went on a little trip yesterday - a fundraiser for Casita Linda, organization in San Miguel that builds houses for homeless families.  The event - a Folk & Blues Festival - took place in one of the most unique homes anywhere.  Ranchito Cascabel began as a simple project by Tim Sullivan but grew into something much grander.  He says his inspiration was the work of Antoni Gaudi of Barcelona.  More than one attendee could be heard making comments like, "Looks like it was designed by someone reading Alice in Wonderland on LSD. "

The serpentine theme plays throughout, as it send water from the roof to the gardens below, the laundry room door is a world of bubbles.  And beyond the fantastical house, and the cactus farm was a wonderful pavilion filled with oldies but goodies enjoying the music and memories.
