Avoid Salty Snacks – Don’t carry chips, nuts, or other salty snacks. This will cut down on thirst and the subsequent potty breaks after so much drinking.
In the distance the Great Cross, over 200 feet tall, reminds spirituality seekers that this is the cradle of Catholic Christianity in America. As you keep walking, you’ll see various monuments to the Catholic faith. The Stations of the Cross are represented by stone memorials; statues of St. Francis of Assisi, St. Joseph, and Father Francisco Lopez de Mendoza Grajales (the priest who orchestrated the first Mass) also dot the mission grounds. The statue of Fr. Lopez is particularly photogenic because it sits along the waterfront at the Lagoon.

Mitt Romney at least made a fortune in the private sector. I guess you could call his boutique firm, Bain Capital, a small business. But I bet he never swept the floor trying to save the money on a cleaning person. He may have built that fortune but it wasn’t with the proceeds of his house being mortgaged to the hilt to allow him to pursue that dream. He had contacts and referrals from his father and mother. Governor Romney went to Harvard Business School and Law School. He worked hard and diligently for everything he accomplished. But Mitt is certainly not one of the guys from the neighborhood who made good. I doubt he can understand what it is like to be sweating out collecting what is owed to you so you can pay your employees that week.
Firstly, take note of the fact that the bed you choose for your dog is small, so that your pooch can easily cuddle up and have a good night sleep with a protective feel. Space is not the only matter; it has to be in conformation with the size and shape of your dog to make him feel protected. Always remember that your dog is not allergic to any of the material used in the make of the bed. Check that it is in accordance with the weather and cozy enough for your dear pet.
Walking inside the chapel brings an immediate sense of peace. Burning candles engraved with pictures of saints accent the small stained glass windows (visitors can purchase these candles at the gift shop); small, simple wooden pews seem to invite humility. The altar is watched over by a statue of the Virgin Mary. You do not have to be of the Catholic faith to appreciate the spiritual aura; it is comforting to people from all walks of life. Sit a while and take in the aura. If there are other people, wait until they filter out. It is an invigorating experience to be alone in this place. If you’re more interested in photo opportunities, there are plenty. Take time to look at the wall plaques representing the Stations of the Cross.
