Mission Dolores

We moved to the San Francisco area in August, and by the time we were all settled, the city was very cold. So at the first sight of pleasant weather, my husband dragged me to the city to explore -that was last weekend.

The Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf, Alcatraz, Crooked Street were all visited by us before so Sunit insisted we doscover the quainter historical parts - we decided to visit Mission Dolores - the oldest structure in San Francisco. Much of the structure, though restored, still stands on the original adobe walls and looks like how it did when it was constructed in the eighteenth century.

Here are some pictures from the trip.

Stained glass window inside the Basilica

The Basilica - I really liked the light streaming in from the stained glass windows and creating the red glow inside

The Cemetery - You can see that spring is here and cherry blossom trees are in full bloom

The Chapel

P.S. I am so glad spring is here and summer follows soon :-)
