When Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo shot into this harbor in 1542, his first words were, "WTF? That damn Sebastian gave me a bum tip again!" Needless to say, he turned his ship around and left thinking this place has already been settled! Once the ship disappeared on the horizon, the Kumeyaay Native American inhabitants pulled down the city facade and continued their normal lives for another 200 years before they were bothered again. However, this time, everyone forgot where they stored the city facade and the Spanish succeeded in establishing a military post in 1769.
