Today was taken to rest the men and animals, as they were very much in need of it. At this place, however, the men were much worse off than the animals, as the land had plenty of pasture for the latter, but lacked everything necessary for the former. The sea, which did not yield even a single shell-fish, was no less barren, although it abounded in sea-gulls and pelicans, the only fishermen on these shores, to which our people gave no truce, for they ate as many as they killed.

The commander resolved to rest at this place and send out the explorers to examine the coast, following the skirt of the mountain range, with the intention that we should take that road, for according to the descriptions that they had brought, he was confident and hopeful of finding the port of Monterey, which we were seeking.
