San Juan Capistrano, Part 2

There was a nice garden to stroll through on our way to lunch, see the "sheep rock" to the right?

We ate at Ruby's, I think Steve's dad would like the Cola-Cola decor.

Not far from Ruby's is Mission San Juan Capistrano. It was established more than 200 years ago and covers more than 10 acres. It feels spacious, a step back in time. You can have a leisurely stroll on the grounds almost anytime of the year.

We never had access to this Greco-Roman arch area on previous visits, walking up close to it really took my breath away. For a moment I imagined I was at some cathedral in Europe.

Sam enjoyed the atmosphere as well.

You can have a peaceful stroll in the lush gardens so long as you don't have kids wrecking havoc near you...

Another serene spot, beautiful stone cross.

And back to the train station to catch the Metrolink.
This seems to be a habit of mine recently, taking the "good-bye" shots at the end of a trip.
San Juan Capistrano is a wonderful place for a day's visit.
