Fountain at San Miguel

Like many places we visited during this trip, there was a dramatic temperature difference between sunshine and shade. The shady areas, often including the insides of buildings (early spring, chilly nights, not much in the way of heating) were uncomfortably cold and the warm sunshine was most welcome (especially for Terri who was starting to get sick by this point). And so, partly for this reason, the front courtyard was a favorite spot with our family. We especially enjoyed watching (and attempting to draw) the fish in this lovely fountain.

There were a number of interesting artifacts placed around the courtyard as well, like a cannon, a large bell and an old wagon.
