La Purisima Kitchen Panorama

I recently spent some more time at the La Purisima mission and this time I actually brought my tripod. It's a little dark in the rooms to get the detials without it. I particularly like the rooms where they have furnished and set up "day in the life" type scenes like this. You can't actually walk around in this room, but it is still an interesting glimpse.

Dinner at La Purisima

Although our Santa Barbara Mission has a wonderful historic tour with some authentic artifacts, there is nothing quite like spending some time in a mission where they have painstakingly restored and recreated on a large scale what the day to day life must have been like when the missions were the full communities they were designed to be. La Purisima offers the space and flexibility to almost step into the past. It is a wonderful experience.

La Purisima Room

I like this room, just simple and plain. This mission has been destroyed and rebuilt at least once in it's history. Fortunately it is in pretty good shape now. It's a beautiful place.
