I was wondering where to start with my pictures from this past weekend. Since Halloween is approaching (my favorite holiday), I will go with the words of a witch . . . Glinda - the good witch of the North . . . "It is always best to start at the beginning."
As we walked through campus you couldn't help but notice the change as we entered the grounds around the mission . . . the noise and energy of the campus faded into the background and you felt the peacefulness of the mission take over. It is a beautiful place . . . and I love it more very time we stop. The rose pictured above has to be the largest rose I have ever seen.
I have only been to a few of the missions in California. I think I may have to make an effort to visit them all. Mission Santa Clara . . . named after Saint Clara of course is going to be special to me . . .
Just a short visit . . . a few photos . . . a crane dropped . . . a couple of new t-shirts, a coffee mug, and a new hat . . . and we were off.
