OLD TOWN

This morning we drove to Qualcomm Stadium where the San Diego Chargers play, only a short distance from our campground, and we parked the truck and rode the lite-rail or trolley train to Old Town. We shopped around for awhile, read about and viewed some of the historical exhibits, and ended this visit with a nice lunch.
Qualcomm Stadium decorated for Christmas. The train depot and tracks are right behind where I am standing to take this picture.
The entrance to Old Town San Diego State Historic Park.
This picture should be called "Grumpy Old Men" as Ernie and Dick weren't too happy with Bev and I. We were shopping....well, actually just looking.....but the guys got tired of watching us check out the pottery shop, the candy shop, the coffee shop, and, well you get the picture. We went in each store and looked, but the guys seem to think that there is no need to keep looking if you aren't going to buy. They just don't know how to shop!

This was such a nice, tall, clean looking palm tree. Some are so messy that I don't like them at all, but this one looked good.
Lots of beautiful blooming flowers......another blog.
I thought the poinsettias decorating the simple black iron rail were so pretty. It was kind of a dark corner, so it's not the best picture, but you get the idea.

Ernie doesn't remember what this was called, but it had chicken in it and was kind of a huge taco thing. He ate every single bite.
