After resting in our hotel room for a bit, we headed off to explore the neighborhood.  About two blocks away was the beautiful San Carlos Cathedral also known as the Royal Presidio Chapel.  It is the oldest continuously functioning church and the first stone building in the State of California.

These beautiful intricate wooden doors were amazing.  I absolutely fell in love with them.  They were so grand and rustic.

I’m obsessed with succulents.  Look at how beautiful this one was.  I wish I knew the name so I could try to grown some at home on our balcony.

Everything was beautiful and I’m glad we stopped by.
