Hello dear friends,
Well Rick and his camera were at it again. We went to the historic landmark San Gabriel Mission and took a walking tour, of course he was in his wheel chair.This mission was founded in 1771 and was designed by Father Antonio Cruzado of Spain. Rick was able to take a few pictures and that made him very happy, so here they are hope you enjoy them.
Here we have Jesus at the mission cemetery.
A sweet angel not far from Jesus.
This is inside the old church.
Our Mother Mary holding her Son. This is so beautiful.
Outside on the grounds we came across this lovely Virgin of Guadalupe.
This was the 4th mission built of 21 that we have here in California.
Father Serra the founder of the missions.
A small angel, these two were small and low on the ground, easy for him to photograph.
Jesus, no words needed.
Gorgeous angel, this one was my favorite.
The famous Mission Bells. They were very important and rang everyday to call the residents to work and to eat.
Oh what a wonderful day we had, we forgot the sunscreen and he burned his arms, but he was alright, actually he didn't even mind it because he had a great day.
He hopes you enjoyed this special day at the San Gabriel Mission. The grounds are so beautiful and so many grape vines, oh my goodness, they are everywhere.
Hope this week is a blessed one for all of you.
