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.
