Kongo spent a few hours today lusting after automobiles at the La Jolla Concours car show. So many choices! He hopped from classic corvettes to English sports cars to American muscle machines and back again. Perhaps a Porche or Ferrari? That Rolls Royce was nice. Or maybe the ’49 Chevy Lowrider would just right for a monkey on the prowl. In any event it was a great afternoon which wrapped up with a Bloody Mary and Caesar salad at George’s at the Cove. Perfect afternoon. Enjoy the pictures.
Today Kongo visits the first of the Franciscan California missions, the Mission San Diego de Alcalá in Mission Valley, San Diego. The mission is still an active church with regular masses scheduled on weekends. Kongo waited almost an hour before entering the sanctuary to take pictures because a hearty couple was celebrating 50 years together with a full mass. It wasn’t a loss though. Kongo was free to roam the rest of the grounds and had a nice chat with a man named Rick from Prescott, Arizona visiting San Diego with his family.
