Local Wander

We went on a local wander flight at the end of last month, and I thought you might like to fly along. First up is this different angle than you typically see of the Mission.

Nearly all pix you see are facing the front and featuring the twin bell towers. From this side you can see the smaller bell tower (center bottom), and the twin courtyards. Just out of view to the left of this pic is the Garden Street Academy K-12 school that we (not being Catholic) didn’t know about until several years after moving here. We thought the tower that’s visible from the Natural History Museum across the creek in the background, was part of the mission building. It was probably when we started flying seven lucky years ago that we thought it was a seminary. Only recently did we learn it’s a non-denominational school.

Next up is this puzzling pic of a greenhouse in Carp. What is causing those white arcs on the gray roof? Maybe sprinklers inside, leaving an accumulation of hard water rings?

Heading back to SBA the city lay before us in the sunset glow, stretching lazily out to the harbor out to the islands beyond.

My last offering from this day is the sort of fireworks we often see over SB. We love how lush our town is with trees and greenery, and the flashes of color like this from flowering trees that pop up into the slanting sun with a last giggle of daylight over the quiet neighborhood.
