October 18th, 2013 – Mission San Juan Bautista

Today we moved from the Monterey Peninsula to San Francisco.  Leslie got wind that there were seals in Moss Landing, so we had to stop by there.  When we got there, no seals, but there were otters, so her day was made.  We then continued on our mission to see the 21 California missions (no pun intended) and stopped by Mission San Juan Bautista.  It was founded on June 24, 1797 and was the fifteenth and largest of the Spanish missions established in present-day California.   It is also the only one of the 21 California missions that has never been abandoned.

Our last stop was at Stanford to get Don a t-shirt.  No pictures, but it was quite the adventure.  We arrived at 3:00 pm on the Friday before homecoming.  Remind us not to do that again.

    Pictures of the Missions are always so pretty. Glad Leslie got to see the otters. Tell me what the animals are at the San Francisco Fisherman’s Wharf please.
