July 25th - Old Town

The day after the wedding, Eliza and Brett went to a one-day honeymoon.  We gladly took all four kids and made a day of it.  Our first stop was Old Town San Diego.  We wanted to give them a taste of the local culture as best we could for as young as they all are.  We looked at a couple of shops and the kids all got to eat fresh, warm hand made tortillas,  Then we all got ice cream cones and watched some ladies doing dances in traditional dresses. That was about as much culture as they could take, so we ran out to Ocean Beach.

After playing in the sand and tide for a bit, collecting shells, we all walked down to the south end of the beach past the pier to the tide pools.  I think the kids had a great time watch the crabs and such and getting demonstrations of sea anemones.  we even saw a couple of ugly sea slugs.

Back up the beach towards the car, there were a couple of people with this large string and stick device making huge bubbles that would drift all the way across the street.  The guy also demonstrated a boomerang that he threw out to sea and it would come back to him to catch.

After that, it was back to Nana's for bed.
