Drive north from Encinitas in Southern California on the Interstate 5 and after 40 miles you will come to a famous place called San Juan Capistrano.
I wanted to go here because a song I heard a long time ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUSC37bLuuU
The swallows legend says that the faithful little birds return to the mission every year on March the 19th, St. Josephs Day.
The mission is a beautiful and restful place, filled with flowers, that reminded me of the set for a John Wayne western movie.
The town of San Juan Capistrano, is also a great place to sit in the sunshine ant eat chocolate ice cream, especially if you have a great girl with you
