IPTC INFO
CaptionIn his diary Father Palou relates our birth story as a region: ________ “On June 27 we reached the vicinity of the port and pitched camp which was composed of 15 tents on the bank of a large lagoon which empties its waters into the arm of the sea or the port that extends inland 15 leagues to the southeast. The object was to wait for the ship to mark out the site for the presidio near a favorable anchorage. No sooner had the expedition gone into camp than many pagan Indians appeared in a friendly manner and with expressions of joy at our coming. Their satisfaction increased when the experienced the kindness with which we treated them and when they received the little trinkets we would give them in order to attract them such as beads and estables. They would repeat their visits and bring little things in keeping with their poverty such as shellfish and wild seeds. “On the day of our arrival the commander ordered an enramada arbor to be constructed which was to serve as a chapel for celebrating the holy sacrifice of the mass. On an alter erected with I celebrated the first holy mass on June 29 the feast of the great holy Apostles St. Peter and St. Paul."
