Meeting Some Family

The main goal of the day was to meet up with my cousin Colin and his wife Laure who just so happen to live in San Diego. 

We had been talking about breakfast at this Donut Bar place that was walking distance from the hotel. A couple other people had the same idea so we gave up and continued on our journey.

We checked out this farmer's market in Little Italy.

Things were eaten.

We then met Colin and Laure for lunch and then did some good old fashioned touristy stuff.

We stopped for refreshments at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens - Liberty Station. Liberty Station is a really cool old naval training center converted into shops and restaurants.

We took a walk through a park that is on the naval training center's grounds that is adjacent to the water. Across the water is San Diego's airport, so it was an interesting juxtaposition.

We ended with a stroll around San Diego's Old Town.

We rocked this old timey candy shop real hard. The period-dressed worker was very generous with samples so we tried all kinds of stuff. I settled on a bag of cordials which were fun. They were like chocolate balls, with a crunchy layer, and inside that was a juicy flavored center. I chose lavender. I should really be eating more flowers.

We returned to our hotel's Gaslamp Quarter neighborhood for dinner and then turned in for the night.
