We left Jo Joba Hills on Sunday and moved to Escondido Moose lodge for a week's stay.Our daughter and son-in-law live in San Diego and it's only 25 minutes away so this works for us.I also have a cousin I haven't seen in years that lives in Temecula so we went to dinner at her house on Sunday. We had a great barbecue and was able to see her mother which I haven't see in years.It was a nice family get together. Ellen and Melba
On Monday night Jim,Jill,Sam and I went to the Gas Lamp district of San Diego. This is a nice area with shops and lots of restaurants.We walked around and had a nice dinner of Mahi Mahi.
On Thursday Sam and I took a ride over Encintias and Cardiff By the Sea to enjoy the ocean. We stopped at a overlook in Encintias to enjoy the view. The overlook was like a litttle park area overlooking the ocean and a nice place to sit and relax.
After driving around we decided to look for a place to eat and found Yogi's Beach Bar and Restaurant. We both had Fish and Chips and and probably wouldn't go again.The food was just ok. On Saturday Sam,Jill and I went to Old Town San Diego.Jim worked the night before so was sleeping and didn't go with us. Old Town San Diego is a State Historic Park.This Historic Park gives you the opportunity see how life was in early San Diego.There are 5 adobe buildings still in use today and many shops ,museums and restaurants. The McCoy house was reconstructed by James McCoy in 1869 who was a well to do Irish immigrant who served as San Diego's sheriff and senator.The Mc Coy house.
La Casa de Estudillo is a mansion built around a courtyard.In 1907 sugar magnate John Spreckles purchased the remains of the mansion and began restoration of Old Town.
We had a great day with a little bit of history and a whole lot of fun. That's it until next time.
