My Random Intro: the header is from my own backyard – it’s a romantic tangled mess,  but I like it.

 

San Diego is the 4th vacation city in the USA. When we lived in Southern California we only lived 1 1/2 hrs. drive from there, so we went there quite often. Not on the holidays because half of the time was spent on looking for a parking place.

Sea Shore Village
Typical building styles and a few steps from the boardwalk to see sail ships and other boats,
the long bridge to Catalina Island. On the boardwalk are often a few mime artists
keeping passers by entertained. All very leisurely and pleasant.

Folklore – in the weekend seeing dance groups here (free) –
always draws a lot of people

Fountain next to where the musicians play. There are all kinds of specialty stores here and places to eat.

 

Cinquo de Mayo is coming up – that means for me: good food! Old Town is the best place to eat authentic Mexican and probably also the most affordable:)

My fave dish is Enchiladas… WHAT  IS  YOUR  FAVE  ETHNIC  DISH?

 

Except for second  pic (in Balboa Park) all other images are from Old Town

  2. I haven’t spent enough time there, maybe next time I’m in Southern California. Nice shots!

    My altitude on Pulpit Rock was probably around 6,500 feet above sea level, it’s not that high but looks across towards the mountains perfectly.

    1. That’s the first of the ethnic celebrations we used to go to, then there was an Indonesian food day in June and somewhere in Aug. the Greek festival – the advantage of a metropolis:) Now I live in N. CA I may have to make my own (food) festival, lol!

    1. Well …pizza comes from Italy, so yes, that’s an ethnic dish:):)
      By the way we ate the pizza’s in Italy from a mom & pop store, and they are softer in taste, and the crust is softer too – not crunchy.

  5. Your photos are stunning! Loved the gate, the architecture, the look of Old Town! We went to San Diego (my first visit since I was a baby) three years ago and I loved it! My Mom told me I was conceived after a trip to Balboa Park on Easter 46 years ago! 🙂

    Favourite ethic food? Now that’s a difficult one _ i do like my food! I think I’d have to go for a spicy Indian dish, a dhansak I think
