Day two shopping down Del Mar Street in San Clemente then to San Juan Capistrano depot to catch the train . I love this city, and I wish I lived here. This city was created around Mission San Juan Capistrano, and many of the homes and strip malls resemble the Spanish architecture that compose the building. It is home to the widest variety of homes in Orange County, including those built prior to 1900 in its central district (some being adobes from the 18th century), a number of 10 million-dollar homes in the gated communities of the hills, and working ranches in its foothills.
Ahh the perfect background… rolling hills dotted with enchanting horses.
And as you enter the town of San Juan Capistrano, you feel like you’ve just stepped back to the western days.
Cute saddles for the kids to ride in at the playground. Leo could have played here all day, but we had a train to catch !!
I think it’s every little boys dream to get on a train for an adventure … to lands yet to be discovered.
We enjoyed listening to this talented man playing this old-time piano, while we waited for the train …….
The train has arrived and it’s time to board the train, all aboard ! I relaxed and enjoyed my magazine, while Leo played games on Darrills phone.
Next stop San Diego….to spend the night , then up early for another adventurous day !
