We both saw San Juan Bautista for the first time and thought the mission was in fine shape and the town is quite old and attractive. It would be a good place to visit, just to go looking at antiques and doing the walking tour, things like that. There is a cemetary behind the mission, with old wooden crosses. I wonder how old they are.
We also spent a little time in the Carmel business district, the rather chi chi downtown. Looked in antique stores, a toy store, a bead store, and had some coffee in a patio. That was fun also.
