After our late lunch, we had a California history lesson at Mission San Diego de Alcala, the first of the California Missions. (I knew teaching 4th grade would come in handy some day.) With all the amazing churches, and ancient buildings in Italy, Federico learned about our native Americans and Father Serra bringing Christianity to the Indians.
After some relaxing time in Little Italy, we had a great dinner at Buon Appetito. We began with an antipasto of burrata. Federico had Linguini allo Scoglio with clams, mussles, scallops and shrimp. Brad had a special pasta stuffed with lobster, and I had a filetto with mushrooms and gorgonzola.
We ended the night with Federico treating us to gelato and coffee at Papalecco, and then a nightcap and travel stories at the hotel bar. Here is my favorite shot of the day! Our FAMILY at dinner:
