Ironically, we end our mission sojourn at the first mission we visited several years ago. Sonoma is a favorite destination for us. The surrounding countryside and the historic town square next to the mission seem to draw us in. Several years ago we visited the Solano mission and first caught the ambition to visit all 21 of them. So it is fitting that we should end here. It was also the last of the Spanish missions to be built. We stayed at a favorite motel that has very nice garden grounds and a nice facility. The past few days we have driven through windy winery laden roads and enjoyed shopping and strolling in Healdsburg, Windsor, Geyserville, Calistoga and Sonoma. Oddly, we don't stop at the wineries, though we do enjoy driving through the vineyard laden hills. Our final days of Spring break will find us enjoying some time with Ellen in Sacramento.
