Sunny Side Up


From the San Juan Capistrano Mission garden, 17 May 2005
It's been gloomy in Palos Verdes (either very foggy or overcast) so I needed a bit of sunshine. Wanda of water colors by wanda blog  reminded me of the 4th grade Mission project done in California schools. The 4th graders build a mission model and if possible, visit a local mission. My son's school was lucky to take a trip to the beautiful San Jaun Capistrano Mission when the gardens were in full bloom. That was 5 years ago!

San Jaun Capistrano Mission is a beautiful mission.
