The 1920’s Gregorian Manor of Ethan Allen at Rolling Ridge originally designed by Andrew Hepworth inside the courtyard at the entrance of the property

Last week, I visited my good buddy who works at Rolling Ridge Conference Center in North Andover, Massachusetts.  This was my first visit to this area.  I wanted to travel here to see Fall Foliage.  The leaves were starting to turn.  So perhaps now they are much brighter in color compared to when I took this photo.

I did love the architecture of this building.  The cobblestone courtyard was also very interesting.  In the center, there is a fountain.  In California, cobblestones courtyards are not common.  Perhaps this is why I enjoyed looking at the texture of this courtyard.  It was nice to be in this expansive area compared to the compact surroundings of a city.

I will be sharing more of the scenic Rolling Ridge Conference Center grounds which are beautiful and serene.  It was nice to take a break from the Bay Area and be in quiet surroundings to relax.
