Los Rios Street after dark (one hour earlier)

We used our extra hour of darkness this evening to stroll around the oldest continually occupied neighborhood in California -- the Los Rios District in San Juan Capistrano. It's one of those spots that takes on a wonderful vibe after the sun sets. By all means, everyone should explore the area during the day -- But definitely come back to see it again in the evening.
.
By the way,... Some of the homes and families along Los Rios Street date back to the 1700s and early 1800s. (And you thought you'd lived here a long time!)
I took these two photos tonight, after dinner at the historic El Adobe Restaurant. The photo at the top of today's post is a small cottage on the Rios family's property. The one below shows the San Juan Capistrano train depot, built in 1894.
.
Sorry,... We didn't see a single ghost.

I know this place very well. My dad worked at the El Adobe for many years back in the 1960s. Fantastic pics. Much appreciated, Richard.
