I'm continuing my "friend tour" in the beautiful small city of San Rafael in the North Bay area. Sara and I had about a dozen years of catching up to do in 3 days but we did a pretty good job of it!
We also did a walking tour of downtown which includes the 20th Spanish mission, Mission San Rafael Archangel, founded in 1817. The mission and the city are named after the Archangel Raphael, the Angel of Healing. There were quite a few interesting sites to see but I'll let the photos tell the rest of the story.
