Mission San Juan Bautista -- August 15, 2009

Today we took a nice drive down to Gilroy and San Juan Bautista. It was over 90 degrees. We caught the recessional of the Feast of the Assumption mass. The garden was nice but we didn't see the cats right away. On our way back from the rest rooms, we stopped to watch a chicken and three or four chicks scratching among some plants. Then we saw a cat running along the edge of the field. My daughter said it looked hen-pecked. When we went to leave through the gift shop, a smaller grey and white cat was waiting to go out to the quadrangle. The lady in the shop said the cats and the chickens get along. It was good to get out of the house.

We were going to go to Santa Cruz, but the big fire near Bonny Doon discouraged us. The air was thick with smoke down at San Juan Bautista.

I took the photo of the mission today.
