The Mission of San Juan Capistrano and the Beautiful Gardens

When we were in California, one of the things on my to do list

was to visit the city and the Mission of San Juan Capistrano.

I remember my mom singing the song, “When the Swallows Come Back to Capistrano”

by the Ink Spots.

I have heard the story of the Swallows and wanted to make certain that we

visited the Mission of San Juan Capistrano and the beautiful gardens.

I Fell in Love with Beautiful Cedar Shake

I fell in love with beautiful cedar shake houses and

gardens . . . and water views . . . that are abundant

on the magnificent island of Martha’s Vineyard.

I had the great opportunity of traveling with my hubby to the Northeast

where he had a conference to attend.

Even though there is so much for me to do at home,

my philosophy is to enjoy and savor each moment and opportunity that life offers.

Before the conference, we decided to take a few days and visit Martha’s Vineyard.

A place that has always been on my bucket list.

Here is one of my favorite photos that I took while we were there.

An Amazing Room at the Inn

We very recently took a trip to Martha’s Vineyard.

I have never been there and it has been on my bucket list for some time now.

Upon great recommendations, we booked our stay at The Charlotte Inn in Edgartown.

It was breathtaking from the time you entered  this most exquisite Inn.

I was on visual overload of all of the stunning rooms and antiques throughout the inn.

But first, let me show you the room where we stayed.
