San Diego - Good Times Part III

Saturday was our sight-see and travel home day.  I know, I know.... a lot to be done in a short period of time.  Since I would love to take Sissy to Disneyland, Sea World, and the Zoo, I wasn't interested in hitting any of those spots.

I did hear about Old Town and while we originally planned to hit it Friday night, those plans kinda fizzled (we are old and get tired easily), so we saved it for Saturday morning.

Lot's of cool shops, interesting things to see and a fun atmosphere.  Even at 9:00am in the morning.  : )

We found the coolest USMC blanket with the mascot of the Bulldog on it.  Did you KNOW that the mascot is a Bulldog?  I didn't.  How fitting since that is my kids nickname huh?  I wanted to get this for him, but 1. It was a little more pricey than I wanted.  2.  He can't take it with him to boot camp or to deployment so instead I settled for a very cool hat with the USMC symbol and bulldog on it.

The original jail cell. 

"Look honey, I'm an ass whisperer"
For reals, that burro loved me!

That is one BIG Aloe Vera plant.  That would last a person a lifetime of oven burns!

We didn't spend a ton of time in Old Town.  Enough to get a feel, see some interesting things and kick ourselves for not going the night before for food and the shows.  Oh well.....since I am already plotting a trip back to SD - I can plan a little better and make another stop in Old Town.

What? All the other commenters said it!

I remember going to Old Town when I was little and eating at a Mexican restaurant and watching my uncle pour sweat off his head from eating, well, basically FIRE in the form of salsa.

And then feeding that same salsa to a bird that landed next to us.
