Well, as of today we have visited all 21 Spanish Missions. Our last two were Mission Delores in San Francisco and San Rafael Arcangel. The San Francisco mission is adjacent to a huge basilica (which is impressive in itself) It features the twenty-one missions in stained glass windows. The San Rafael Mission is a recently reconstructed replica. We will still visit the Sonoma Mission again on our way back to Sacramento of Friday. But having finished our mission hunting by noon, we headed to the Sonoma Coast to enjoy the newly exposed sunshine. We had a nice drive along Tomales Bay and up to Bodega Bay. The sun roof on the Scion was open the whole time and we soaked it in. We are spending the night in Santa Rosa and will explore the area some more tomorrow. We found a great hike on a nearby 'mountain' to end the day.
