Santa Clara

It's because of this...


that I ended up here - at beautiful Mission Santa Clara...

Silly me. My iphone cracked when it slipped silently out of my back pocket and hit the driveway. Not willing to pay the Apple pricetag for a new screen, I found a business that replaces iphone screens for a very reasonable price while you wait. I figured that since I'm driving all the way to Silicon Valley for just a brief visit to Cupertinoiphone.com, I may as well find some place to shoot off some photos, so I decided to hit up Mission Santa Clara on my way back home. The mission happens to also be on the grounds of posh Santa Clara University.

First, a look around the historic Mission:






Then I walked the pristine grounds of Santa Clara University. The spring semester had ended and the summer session had not yet started, so the campus was rather deserted but pristine and picturesque nonetheless...













Not a bad place to go to college, eh? And my iphone is now once again presentable looking.

Beautiful photos! I LOVE the door, especially! Sorry to hear about your iphone.

Lovely tour. The statue with the necklace was the much needed human touch in this tour as no other person was found.
