In San Diego, I stayed near Old Town, the most famous part of which is probably the Spanish mission, the first of its kind in California. Here's a quick peek.
I got there just as a later service was starting. Whoopsie.
The exhibits are similar to those at other missions.
There was an archaeological dig just behind the mission.
This mission was (I believe) the only one to see Native American rebellion against the Spanish priests. The priest depicted here is remembered in the Roman Catholic church as a martyr.
The man who started it all, for better or for worse.
Later that afternoon = the San Diego Zoo. To be continued...
