Mission San Juan Bautista By Lauren

The picture above shows the archways at the front of the mission.

I was surprised about how small the doorways were. I was also surprised about how small the women's shoes were. In the Castro Breen House, the beds were small. They were about the size of what we call a twin size bed. One of my favorite parts of the field trip was looking at the stage coaches and old cars in the Plaza Stables. The Plaza Hotel was my other favorite thing because it showed what the rooms looked like and what some of the clothes looked like.

The red tile roof was made by the Native Americans molding the clay with their legs and letting it dry in the sun.

This archway shows some adobe bricks, what the mission was built out of. They were made by mixing mud, straw, and cow manure together and molding it into a thin rectangle and sun-drying it.

The companario was also made out of Adobe bricks, but were covered in a plaster material.

The photo on the right is a doorway with a wooden heart at the top. The photo on the left is a door with a curvy line that resembles the river of life.
The leftmost photo is a statue of Saint John the Baptist. The middle photo is a statue of Father Serra. The rightmost photo is an El Camino Real Bell or a Mission bell, El Camino Real means the King's highway. They are placed along highway 101 to mark where the priests and soldiers would walk to get from mission to mission.

The mission had a lot of vegetation in and around it.
