This is the view of the mission from the Starbucks across the street. However, if you should be planning a visit, you might want to try the coffe place shown below (you can get a Starbucks anywhere).
The Starbuck has an old brick facade which is carried over into the little plaza pictured below.
Fall is in the air here, too.
It was too early to tour the mission, and I had just been there this summer, so I took a few shots from outside the wall.
I don't know if they age the tiles before using them as replacement pieces or if these have come from a renovation project.
I took a side trip to a little historic district to catch a little local color.
Another old house with an 'interesting' accent color choice.
The old train depot is now Sarducci's and beside it, off the tracks, is an old railroad car restaurant called The Vintage Steak House
One last shot of some nice color by the train depot.
