Sonoma again

Second stop in Sonoma. This time round we made it to the Mission and the barracks, lovely old whitewashed adobe-brick buildings. This was the last of the Missions which started in Guatemala in the 1500's and reached Sonoma 150 years ago. 8 years after being built it ran into the Mexican government's secularisation and soon after that, after a short-lived Californian Republic, became part of the USA.
