To Rocky Point.



Gaspar de Portolá
The 3rd, we proceeded for four hours over the road by which we had come and made the same distance as on the outward journey .

Miguel Costansó
Early in the morning, some natives from the Río de San Verardo came to the camp bringing some provision of pinole and atole. We then moved our camp to the Punta de los Pedernales, a distance of two leagues. From the Punta de los Pedernales, the Punta de la Concepción — the most westerly point of the Canal de Santa Bárbara — can be seen to the southeast, 8° east; the most westerly point of the Isla de San Verardo, to the south, 33° east; the westerly point of the Isla de Santa Cruz, directly to the southeast.

Fray Juan Crespi
Early in the morning we had a visit from some heathen of the San Bernardo River, where we did not halt because of the lack of firewood. They brought us our breakfast of atole and pinole made of seeds. May God reward them by opening their intelligence to receive our Holy Faith. They were given some beads, which are the only coin that they value. We set out on the march by the known road, and in two leagues of travel arrived at the town of San Juan Bautista de los Pedernales, from which is seen Point Coucepcion, the most western point of the channel of Santa Barbara, eight degrees east of southwest.
