I recently listed a bunch of vintage postcards of Mission San Juan Capistrano. I associate this mission with the celebration of the Return of the Swallows each year. So I found the mission’s website to find the real story. Turns out that the swallows do return each year, and their return is celebrated on St. Joseph’s Day, March 19th. That’s coming right up, so get your travel plans ready!
…And some books and video on the famous mission from amazon.com. Just click on the photo for a link to amazon.
