In our wanderings around the pier at San Clemente we came upon a street indicating the way to botanical gardens.   There to our great delight was a gorgeous historical marker for the first baptism in the area.   With great anticipation we headed toward the entry only to find the gardens had just closed for the day.  There were, however, many lovely plants and architectural features worthy of note: large waxy yellow flowers that looked  straight from the Tiki hut ride at Disneyland; beautiful windows;  a keyhole front entry door.  Very Alice In Wonderlandish; lovely lamps; and a coral tree.  This is definitely a place worthy of a second look at.

Later, I did get great shots of the life and activities around and under the  San Clemente pier.  The wind was kicking up spray from the curling waves.
