The Mission Inn

Over the weekend I went to see the Festival of Lights at the very old and majestic Mission Inn.

The crowds were large and aggressive, everything had a mile long line, someone always seemed to step into your frame when you tried to take a picture... 

...and, I loved it.

There were lights literally everywhere you looked and, despite the massive crowds, we were able to maneuver our way through the area rather quickly while taking everything in. Aside from the lights, there were moving dolls, vendors of hot chocolate and kettle corn, and even an ice skating rink!

I hope everyone had a great holiday!

  2. Oh, how ethereal! That ice skating rink sounds wonderful--I haven't skated in years! I'm glad you had a good time regardless of crazy crowds; sometimes the bustle makes everything that much more exciting. Happy holidays!
