The Diary of Sebastian Vizcaino (1602)


Follow the adventures of this Spanish explorer in California here.

Excerpt: “To this bay was given the name of San Francisco. It has many fish – mackerel, white sea-bass, and many other kinds of which the soldiers caught a great number with sail-rope and small lines and bent needles and pins. We found in the rancherias of the Indians some horns larger than those of bulls and small ones like those of goats; they said that the large ones are buffalo horns, and the Indians said by signs that there were cattle inland. This country has a good climate and is pleasant to travel in.
