Waiting for the Swallows

The Mission – San Juan Capistrano, California

When we went to visit my family in Southern California in late 2019, one of the places that we explored was Mission San Juan Capistrano, which has changed a lot from the last time I saw it some 30 years ago. It seems that archeological teams keep finding new things to learn about the Mission, and the new discoveries are incorporated into what is shown to the public. Today it seems a lot more livable to me than it did just three decades ago.

  1. We did the tour a few years ago. It had a working chapel where one could take in a quick daily mass or prayer time. Don’t know if it still has it. But, I’m not surprised new finds are being discovered all the time. The Spanish mission effort was quite robust.
