Today was our first of our three driving days in this sprawling city. Kim decided to take me and Daisuke somewhere we both hadn’t been to. And that would be the mission at San Juan Capistrano [San-Juan-Capistrano-travel-guide-14256] about an hour away.

Dai and I went around the two main courtyards of the mission and several rooms in the buildings. We wandered around the older parts of town near the railway tracks. I expected old ornate Spanish buildings but they were largely simple wooden cottages.

Then we found Ross Dress for Less where I bought a nice pair of Skechers shoes for USD30 (similar ones were selling for double that at the outlets next day).

We found a nice cafe near Newport Beach for lunch. It made quite a nice change from franchised fast food in the USA. Next stop was a walk on Hermosa Pier.

We drove by Manhattan Beach [Manhattan-Beach-travel-guide-12878] before settling for dinner at Chipotle. It’s good that we love Mexican food because it is often the best choice.
