So Little Time

July 17, 2012

The same day we rode the Metrolink to the San Clemente pier, we also visited the town of San Juan Capistrano.  I had never been to Mission San Juan Capistrano. It was the seventh one built out of twenty-one in California and founded in 1776. Because there was only one train to catch to get back home, there was pressure to take in as much as I could in a short amount of time. It is definitely a place I’d like to revisit and be able to take my time.

Old red brick, and anything rustic always catch my eye..

It was somewhat of a challenge to not have people in the pictures. Later we found out that two weddings had taken place at the mission. It offers a lovely setting for them..

    I visited this place some 50 years ago. It left a lasting impression with me. I loved your pictures.
