The walk is held at the Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, found by Father Serra in 1772. It is beautiful and still an active parish. It is right in the middle of town and next to a seasonal creek. It has walkways and lots of areas to just sit and enjoy the quiet.
And a pink rose...I think it was celebrating our walk, too. SMILE.
Here is the starting line:
It was only a three mile walk...and I'll be honest, with all my chattering, we seemed to finish in no time. LOL This group has raised over $40,000 just this year to fight breast cancer. Save the TaTa's!!
The Day of the Dead...
Right outside the Mission. Seems a little odd to dress up the cow as a Franciscan monk...but the missions are a huge part of California. LOL
And who would this sweet face represent? Another Day of the Dead Cow! LOL
Our county fair...
It says the Royal Cow...I'm a little fuzzy on how this represents our county. I should have read the placard more thoroughly...
And a Texas cow in California? LOL
Next to the mission is a Carnegie Library. Paso Robles (my home town) and San Luis Obispo both have their original libraries, though are now used by the local historical societies as museums. I feel fortunate to still have these buildings in my county. So many were demolished in California.
Hope you enjoyed the pictures. I am off to work on my next project...if I can keep my eyes opened. Have a wonderful and be kind to one another.
