Before we drove down Highway 1 yesterday we stopped at the
beautiful Carmel Mission. It was a great place to wander with my camera.
We have tried to make it into the mission on several previous
trips to the area but our timing was always off. I'm glad
we made it this time. The grounds on the inside were much bigger than I thought.
This is a statue of Father Junipero Serra, founder of nine
of the twenty-one California Missions.
