I don't go into politics or other controversial topics if I can avoid it on my blog. I don't feel that sharing the beautiful surroundings, inspiring quotes and interesting visit we had to The Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley changes that at all. It was like taking a step back in time and remembering the good and the bad that comes with any era.
It was the first time any of us in our party had been to a Presidential library and we were all most impressed and now feel like if the opportunity presents itself, we would make the time to visit some of the other ones.
As I said, The RR Library is located in beautiful Simi Valley and is perfectly situated on a hilltop that shows off the views of the valley in the most spectacular way.
I'm going to let my pictures just flow and mainly speak for themselves.

Can you guess what this is?

There's one in every crowd, isn't there?

It took us a good four and a half hours to see the entire library with a very pleasant lunch included in that time
frame. I didn't take many pictures as we walked around because I just wanted to enjoy the experience and read the text accompanying the displays which cover the time period from President Reagan's childhood up through his post-presidential days.
A good day.
For my reading friends, a fascinating book that covers the behind-the-scenes reaction and action during the time of the assassination attempt on President Reagan, is out in paperback, ebook form and audio form.
