Our next stop was a brief visit to Misson San Juan Bautista, one of 21 missions that were started up and down the coast of California. It was founded in 1797 and still provides Catholic religious services.
It is of interest to note that the San Andreas Fault line (the line where two of earths plates meet) runs just below the property out back, and indeed the mission was damaged by a big earthquake in 1906. Because the mission sits close to if not on the fault line, they have two seismic recorders on site. One I could not find; here is the other:
We overnighted in Monterey which has a smaller Fisherman's Wharf area.
