Mission Dolores, San Francisco

My hope for last summer was to drive up Route 1 with Francisco and stop at all the California missions. Instead, I was heavily pregnant. So I'm chipping away at them as we get the chance. On this visit, we got to see two (Mission San Luis Rey de Francia here).

This is the mission in San Francisco, which is beside a basilica from this century. The mission was founded in 1776; the building (the oldest in San Francisco) was dedicated 1791.

I love the painted patterned ceilings and the old wooden altar.
