We left the stunning Union Station early in the morning.
I always imagine what it would look like filled with travelers from the 1920s.
About an hour later we arrived at San Juan Capistrano to......
Visit an amazing petting zoo!
We got to feed the sheep, goats, guinea pigs, llamas, bunnies, turkeys, chickens and zedonks.
And they had a giant corn pit!
We had an amazing lunch nearby. It was beautiful, but we all gobbled it before taking any photos. Spicy gorgonzola shoestring fries, that's all I'll say on that topic. Based on one particular review on Yelp, I had actually intended to go somewhere else, but I confused my notes and we had a delicious experience there anyway.
We timed things so that we'd have two hours at the petting zoo and about an hour for lunch. As it played out, we could have stayed about an hour at the petting zoo and taken an earlier train. Starboy was really cooked by the time lunch was over, and we still had a couple of hours before we'd be home. He soldiered on, however.
Starboy liked choosing snacks in the café car on the way home.
