Second visit to the Mission at San Juan De Capistrano
I loved this place last year and so took Aimee with me while we were in the area.
This is the ruins from the original chapel that was destroyed in an earthquake. The niches held statues, one survived, of Mary. I have a pic of it further down. Several people lost their lives in the earthquake.
The front courtyard area.
The current chapel.
Me being silly

One of my good friends just started a blog and I didn't really get it. I have kept a journal for years and was not sure that a more "public" journal was something that held any interest for me. I have found, however, that I have enjoyed reading her posts and commenting on them. I have started reading other blogs and am finally coming "up to speed" and seeing some value in the process of sharing thoughts in a way that is unique from both conversation and journaling but somehow a combination of both. Welcome to my blog!
