Window to the Sky
Mission San Juan Capistrano. July 4, 2010.
Out of all the missions I have visited thus far, this mission is still my favorite. It has such beautiful gardens and old architecture. I even like the ruined church. Ruins are a rarity out here in California. I find something fascinating when I go to a place where there has been habitation for hundreds of years and yet is in ruins because of a natural disaster or other that happened hundreds of years ago. When me and my family go to England, which is in two weeks, I will go into places that are even older than the missions here in California. They are just three hundred years old where some of the place over there are five hundred to over thousand years old over there. That will be a new experience.
