Vacation - Day 8 San Diego to Dana Point

Started out quite hazy this morning, but it burned off quickly. Our plans were to start the movement North (have to be in San Francisco by June 2nd).

We started with the drive up to Mt. Soledad. I was pretty sure my friends Cherie and Harry were interred there. But, a stop by the visitors center proved me wrong. Mt. Soledad is just a Veterans Memorial, no one is actually buried there. We went to the top anyway as there are spectacular views from the top. We were stopped at the entrance, appears with Memorial day approaching there was a special military event in progress and only family members were allowed. So, traced back down.

Had a nice lunch on the beach in Carlsbad and then trekked up to San Juan Capistrano, where we toured the Mission. Nice bit of history and incredible gardens. Well worth our $17.00 and 3 hours time.

Then, a short drive back to Dana Point (gosh, we were just here last weekend for the Doheny Festival), and checked into our hotel, dinner, some TV, and research the upcoming destinations.

On a thought, I sent an email to Sheridan, who said Cherie and Harry are interred at Ft Rosecrans, so we'll drive back down to San Diego in the morning.
