San Juan Capistrano

We visited the mission at San Juan Capistrano today. The church itself was destroyed in an earthquake long ago.

San Juan Capistrano is known for the swallows returning there. But they don't return to the mission any more. As part of beautification, the areas around the mission have been landscaped and planted. Everything is now nicely green--and there is no mud! Swallows need mud to build their nests, so the swallows now roost elsewhere in the area.
