Impressions: Today Uncle Frank and Hope and ourselves started for Los Angeles and hope to see the fun at Tia Juana, Mexico, Sunday. We had dinner at the Alpine Tavern, a charming place with old fashioned china. We had our first taste of abalone. It is fine. This morning we had fresh figs with cream for the first time. Tonight we are at Santa Maria Inn, a beautiful place. Some peculiarities we noticed today were Training Schools for Police Dogs, Gold Fish Hatcheries, Groceterias, the predominancy of silver money. Saw Stanford U. and visited its chapel which is all mosaic work. It is certainly wonderful.
