A Visit to Mission San Juan Bautista


While taking my daughter back to college a couple of weeks ago, we decided to make a side trip to Mission San Juan Bautista. I had never been there before. We had a stunning and crisp day for our visit:



Statue of St.Luke




Statue of Fr.Junipero Sierra









Mission San Juan Bautista was a great side trip. It is so lovely and I am glad that it still functions as a working church.
