A Day in the City.

Where are we today? 
The Chateau at Lake San Marcos

Our third day with Greg was spent in the city of San Diego. We started the day in the Old Town. Interesting old buildings and some history, but for the most part, commercial enterprises. We got there at opening time of 10 am, so we were to early to have lunch at El Fandango which has fantastic fish tacos. We did have some wonderful coffee, though. Great to see a whole rack with South African Rooibos Tea.

Our next stop was Seaport Village and the Embarcadero. We just wandered around and looked at the boats out on bay, rock balancing and the general scenery.

 After spending a couple of hours down at the Embarcadero, we went into the Old Gaslamp Quarter section of San Diego and had lunch at an Indian Restaurant. I don't eat very spicy foods, but this was delicious.

To finish up the day we went up to Balboa Park to the Photographic Exhibition, which Greg really enjoyed.
