Stumbling across history

We had lunch at Olamendi's down at Dana Point on the coast the other day.

We were only after some Mexican food for lunch, but found ourselves sitting at this table.

We asked the story. This was Richard and Pat Nixon's favourite Mexican restaurant - the Nixons had retired to San Clemente, five miles to the south - and we were sitting at their table.

It's nice to have little brushes with history you didn't expect.
