I know that by European standards, this is not a really old building.
But it was before America became a country.
So, this is a part of all the craziness surrounding our youngest daughter’s graduation from college. Most of the family went to Oregon to stay in a cabin in the woods for a week. I stayed home to work and take care of the dogs.
But my mom… who is almost 98, remember, came on down to San Diego after the graduation, to see some of her childhood memory locations.
And the Mission was on the list.
So me and my three brothers escorted her around town.
And you get to look at pictures. Whoo!!!
All these flowers are growing around the Mission. I doubt most of them have been there since the 1700’s.
My mom and two of my brothers, enjoying the peace and coolness of the old chapel.
Some very… pretty… old adobe bricks.
History and flowers, You’re welcome.
