The dog wasn’t planned my son has been wanting one of his own and the opportunity was presented itself ❤️❤️

I was telling my neighbor and she said her daughter, this week too, adopted a dog in Mexico for $500! Omg! A rescue dog.
Crazy.
It’s $131 to adopt from our local pound and those are spay/neutered and have first series of shots. This mex dog didn’t.
Yikes.
I guess if you can afford a $500 rescue dog then ok but WOW!
I assume they had the money and considered it a donation as well which I respect..

ETA: we did pay $30 for Pintã FTR

Dog rescues here in Baja/Mexico can a good business just as in the U.S. which explains the prices they charge:

There is only a bit of a wall left of the final mission site in Santo Tomás. I am curious as to what footprint you saw and what was in the 'museum'... I need to have a look! The site is next to the El Palomar campground, on the north in the field.


Looking north at the mission site, in 2017.


Looking south, over the ruins to El Palomar campground in the background.

Oops, I got the name wrong of which mission. I had taken pics but don’t have them.
I’ll look at your fb group and get the correct name.

This sound better?
Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe?

Maybe not, some places in Mexico will claim something to be a historic site and it may be an innocent mistake rather than making it up for money.

The missions were from a time before Mexicans lived in Baja so their data is not always from the historical letters and books from the Spanish period but instead, stories passed own from ancestors who arrived in Baja after the missions were closed... but in some cases, came to serve at the missions as soldiers or craftsmen.

The missions and photos at the 27 missions have been posted here on Nomad as well as on my missions pages on my website:

Jesuit Missions (#1-17): http://www.vivabaja.com/missions1/
Franciscan and Dominican Missions (#18-27): http://vivabaja.com/missions2/
Mission Visitas: http://vivabaja.com/missions3/
Mission sites from space: http://vivabaja.com/missions4/

The information on these pages is not as updated as they are in my book, which I invite you to get a copy.

I didn’t get her name bit she was beautiful woman in her 30’s or 40’s.

Paul has pics of when the flowers are in the field in full bloom, they weren’t this time but I could picture it in my mind perfectly.
