Travel photos

I took many, many photos at the mission in San Juan Bautista last week but was hesitant to add too many to my last post for fear of boring everyone. This morning I decided I want to preserve more of those photos on my blog because I am so pleased with how they turned out and because the mission has such a special place in my heart.

Nice photos, love Mary with the beads. You're getting really good with your camera. (Must be genetic, SJB is my happy place too. :)

Your beautiful photos would never be boring! I often feel the same way about my blog, but I think we should use our blogs as we want to -- and in my case, it's often for a record of the things that are going on in my life at the time! Your trip north looks awesome -- I'm like you -- I have vacation fever.

Your Mission pictures are awesome friend!!! You could never bore us with such yummy images.
Thanks so much for stopping by & making me feel supported in my handbag spurgle. There is something about a handbag that just doesn't seem so bad when you spend a little extra on it. maybe because like wonderful shoes, they can almost last forever!
Smiles & thanks for the lovely tour,

Susie
