One of the days in California, we took a train to San Juan Capistrano and toured the mission there. These two pages are from that trip. By the way, my cousin let me know today that the swallows are due to return this Saturday. That would be amazing to see.
Here's some pages I did after I returned home. I only brought back a few shells and bits of beach glass. I had a hard time not scouring the beach each day for treasures to bring back home. Instead I tried to just find a few really special ones. And then I found the quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh I included, which summed it all up nicely.
I experimented with cutouts in my journal, which I've never done before. I'm not sure I like the look, but at least I got my treasures in the journal.
