I love history and California is home to many historic missions. Two missions are close to where I live; San Juan Capistrano Mission and San Luis Rey de Francia Mission in Oceanside, CA.
This is a photo of the interior of the church. It still functions as a church and for special events like weddings.
Each time I visit the mission, I enjoy not only the history but the tranquility of the setting. Here are the pictures of the garden and the beautiful succulent garden.
On the way home, we stopped at a roadside fruit stand and bought some "just picked from the tree" avocados.
I'll end this post with a wonderful link to Handmade Harbour. Please take time to visit this site. There are links to wonderful blogposts where you will get tons of creative ideas. Here's my creative idea for the week.....
Have a great week!
