Mission San Jose

Today we visited Mission San Jose and the attached Mission Museum.

Who's the funny guy in front there? Has Robert gone and taken Holy Orders? Is that a monk's hood?

These items were among many in the museum. Loved the tabernacle. That's a silvered baptismal shell in the centre, and an olive oil bottle in the last photo.


This is a shot of the interior of the mission in miniature - made by a miniature club of which our friend Barb Jones was a member. The miniature mission was donated and lives in the Mission Museum now.

California - 20 March 2010 - cool and rainy.

Barb Jones took us to the chapel at Stanford University. Robert loved it. He got to show off some ecclesiastical knowledge. I was fascinated by the mosaics - I have never seen anything like it. We had depleted batteries in the real camera and I am not sure how my camera phone shots came out yet... I have no idea what's on for this afternoon - but I think it should be reorganizing the luggage....
