Our Anniversary at the Mission Inn, Riverside, CA

This will be a short entry because I already did a blog on the Mission Inn on February 7. I actually wrote that entry the day before, on the 100th anniversary of President Reagan’s birth, and I chose the Mission Inn because that’s where he and Mrs. Reagan spent their honeymoon.

I’ve lived in Southern California for over 30 years, and the research for that blog post convinced me that this was a place we needed to see, however belatedly! So I’ll share with you some of my favorite photos from that day.

I find this one intriguing. Why was the door cracked?

The workmanship is amazing on this fa├žade of the
St. Francis of Assisi Chapel
(even if Assisi is misspelled, per my research).



Mission Inn
The Mission Inn has an incredible conglomeration of architectural styles.
