Scott and Susan with El Greco. We went with Mom and Dad to the San Diego Museum of Art this afternoon. As luck would have it, we arrived in Balboa Park just at 2:00 pm, which is when they have a free organ concert every Sunday. So we got to hear the Spreckels organ being played by the San Diego Civic Organist Emeritus, Robert Plimpton, for an hour. Later, we walked up into the pipes area to take a look around. The organ console is an Austin, the same as what Dad uses in Holden, so he enjoyed taking a look at the details. Scott was surprised and impressed to see that our museum has originals from the likes of Giotto, El Greco, Monet, Rubens, Monet, et al. Matt enjoyed the exhibits of Asian art and culture.
