Cali galleries: Old town San Diego.

It took a few days for the other members of my family to fly into San Diego from all over the US. When everyone who could make it arrived, the adventure began. Our first day all together became a full on tour of San Diego sights. It was a really tiring day, but still a lot of fun. πŸ˜„IMG_4602

Our first stop was Old Town San Diego, which was explained to be one of the first towns in California. It was such a fascinating place to be in and go around because it was like going back in time, or going to a movie set but everything is real. An old bank, a carriage, a classroom, several other structures, everything authentic to the time (although probably touched up a bit to avoid too much wear). There were several museums that show how life was back in those days, and even their stores and restaurants were on theme. πŸ˜„

There was this area that I think was a town square of sorts? Perhaps a place where people gathered for special occasions. This place had these beautifully painted benches, as well as these two ladies made of plants that were just really well made and nice to look at. There was also this carriage outside with some Mariachi looking statues and a variety of plants. There were so many areas to take photos and it was a place that was both really upbeat but also chill. πŸ˜†

Apart from the beauty of the old structures and other details, the nature in the area was also incredibly beautiful. There was so much open space, and there were so many cacti, but also so many colorful flowers and towering trees. I probably spent more time taking photos of the scenery than the museums and fixtures. πŸ˜†

The last part of this stop was the gift stores. There were so many stores selling many different things. There was one big one that sold random house fixtures, there were a few stalls that sold souvenirs, and there was this store that sold crystals and other crystal-y things. These were the only two photos I took of the stores, but I think that they convey how overwhelming it was going around this part. 😳

So yeah. That was Old Town San Diego, the first stop of this ultra crazy day. If you want to check out the introduction to this series as well as links to the other posts, go ahead and click here. I hope you have an amazing day, where ever in the world you are. πŸ˜„

’til next time,
