Spending a day with my Dad in San Juan Capistrano!

I found this 1990's picture in the cabinet - I was with My Dad (both of us in these ridiculous shorts, hehehe...) and we were on our way to Tijuana, Mexico and we passed by this little historical site called the Mission San Juan Capistrano, named after the Franciscan Saint Giovanni da Capistrano (1386-1456).

This Catholic Mission is found in a city in southern Orange County, California, USA, located approximately 23 miles (37 km) southeast of Downtown Santa Ana.

It was founded in 1776, and the region was then populated by the Acjachemen band of Native Americans, called JuaneƱos by the Spanish.


I remember myself crouching under the El Camino Real "bell" for a photographic shot and as I was backing up, a cactus thorn pierced my a** - hahahaha.....
