Deserts and Beyond

Deserts and beyond...places in and around the southern California deserts and beyond. Photo taken at Canyon Lake, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, December 2011. A few minutes later, after the sun disappeared, these cliffs were their normal color. They were only golden for a short time and I'm glad we were able to view them in their glory.

Mission San Juan Capistrano~Our World Tuesday~070212






Hubby and I took a couple days off the desert heat and headed toward the ocean.  We found a room in San Marcus and today we headed over to mission San Juan Capistrano again.  We hadn't been there for some time and we were both amazed by all the flowers in bloom!  It was awash with color today.  We just wandered around with our mouths open!  And, it was cool here...much nicer than the 101 degrees in the desert today!  And, we had lunch at Sanducci's, which is right along the Amtrak line there in San Juan Capistrano.  We got to eat a delicious lunch AND watch the trains come and go and stop.  Our World Tuesday for July 2, 2012.  To visit OWT, please go to:    http://ourworldtuesdaymeme.blogspot.com/

It's so great how you and your husband have so many fun adventures! I'm only 45 minutes from San Juan Capistrano, but it's been years since I've been there.
