at 1020 S. Baldwin Avenue in Arcadia, CA. When Cecilia and Michael were kids, this bowling alley was being built. There was plywood up in front of the building.

Statue of the Legendary Seabiscuit
This statue sits outside the entrance to Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, CA. The park sits at the corner of Baldwin Avenue and Huntington Dr. When Cecilia was a child, she lived across the street from Santa Anita. Racing started the day after Christmas and she thought that they planned it that way to discourage kids from riding their new bicycles they got on Christmas Day!

She also used to go to the park early on Saturday mornings to watch the horses being exercised. She fell in love with horses and eventually when she had a family of her own and they moved to the desert, they all had horses.

The parking lot at the race track was huge. Michael had model airplanes with gas engines that were attached to a string. Their dad used to take them to the parking lot at the race track to fly the planes.

The Queen Anne Cottage
Elias Jackson "Lucky" Baldwin, was the founder of Arcadia. In about 1875, he purchased the 8,000 acres known as Santa Anita Rancho. Here he built this home, which was completed in 1886. It's the epitome of a Victorian cottage. The Queen Anne Cottage and its grounds are part of the Los Angeles County Arboretum in Arcadia.

Cecilia always said this is the kind of house she would want to live in.
