Old Town, San Diego, CA (Thur.2/28)

We're picking up the pace a little bit as we made it to the west coast, 1 ½ months after being at the east coast.

Our first look at the Pacific Ocean

The Old Town in San Diego is the “birthplace” of California. It's the first permanent Spanish settlement in California. It was here in 1769, that Father Junipero Serra came to establish the very first mission in a chain of 21 missions.

We learned the history of the Wells Fargo stagecoach

Wells Fargo is special to us as they provide us .15% APY interest on our savings account, yeah dog!

For the history side: It's restored Historic buildings. Of course it has what follows the people: restaurants, hotels and shopping – we saw the historic buildings.

end of the day, bagels and juice boxes in the back of the truck downtown San Diego...

Greetings from Minnesota, Nelson Family!

San Diego is such a great place to visit. We especially enjoyed a trip to the Birch Aquarium at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography when we were in CA for Spring Break two years ago. Look forward to reading more about your travels.

Thinking of you fondly,
