Lei and I finally reached our last stop on our fourth day in Baguio. These are the gates of The Mansion. The Mansion was built in 1908 to serve as the official summer residence of U.S. Governor-Generals at the instance of Governor-General William Cameron Forbes. It now serves as the holiday home and working office for each President of the Philippines during his or her visits to Baguio. (From Wikipedia)
After posing in front of the gates, we were now posing inside the gates and with the actual Mansion on the background. We noticed immediately a new addition to the Mansion’s grounds and that is the huge yellow ribbon underneath The Mansion sign.
Just across the street is Wright Park. Named after Luke Edward Wright, he served as Governor-General of the Philippines between 1904 and 1906 and also as U.S. Secretary of War from 1908 to 1909. Gov. Wright was also the architect of the shallow elongated rectangular man-made pool of water known as the “Pool of Pines”. (From Wikipedia)
While strolling hand in hand along the Pool of Pines, we caught sight of a horse feeding quietly beside a tree.
There were quite a number of tall trees around the area and here was one of them. Or were these actually two trees?
More pictures of Wright Park in the next post!
