April 17th. Eliza, Dash, and I went downtown to visit Seaport Village. The trolley takes about and hour and a half, but it gave us time together to talk.
Downtown across a parking lot which used to be a street is the old San Diego Police Station. On the other side is Seaport village. The station was decommissioned in 1994. It is now a museum. We walked through it and toured the small group of holding cells. Some of them are in an outside corridor. In the back, there are a couple of shops like a Starbucks.
We crossed the parking lot and entered Seaport Village. Small open shops, garden walkways, a pond, and then the harbor.
We didn't buy much, but it was an old fond memory for Eliza. At one point, I'm sitting on a bench with Dash, looking at the pond, and I noticed a splotch of white in a tree. There is a large white bird just hanging around in the branches. I tried to identify it, and I think it is a snowy egret. Linda Schafer will let me know if I'm wrong.
Outside on the street is a plaque denoting Dead Men's Point. Here is a link that talks about it. Cool.
Wonderful afternoon. I was able to pick up a geocache, too!
