On the road again Wednesday Jan. 7. What a pleasant surprise to have 50 degrees for our overnight low temperature. No wonder we really like it here.
It is the oldest continuously functioning church in CA. It also is noted for being the first sandstone (not adobe) building in CA. It also is the first Cathedral in CA.
A docent gave us a tour of the Cathedral and shared so much wonderful history. Love learning the history.
The docent said he'd give us $100 if we knew what these were. I didn't know but after he told me I realized I had read about them. These are sections of whale vertebra. They were used for sidewalk in the early days.
Even more soothing to watch the jellyfish.
Back at our campsite at the Veterans Park we visited with a couple from Tacoma, WA. The weather is so balmy here. Warmer than any where we have been on this trip.
