7th Day- in San Diego!!!

“When I got up this morning the sea was full of sun pennies -
 and now it all seems to be covered in lemon scrim. Writers 
ought to live far inland or next to the city dump, if they are
 ever to get any work one. Or perhaps they need to be stronger-minded than I am.” 

Who knew that trains and beaches go together as well as melted butter and steamed artichokes!!?? Trust me, they do!!!
My vacation started with a train...(link) and on this day Jude and I board a train again.
 For 6 days we enjoyed the sounds of the train gliding past us and all the other beach loungers and surfers in San Clemente. So it only seemed fit that we should climb aboard for an adventure.
This day's jaunt was to be in Old Town San Diego!!
It was yet another fabulooous day!
The weather was perfect..again.
The company was perfect...dear Jude.
I unlocked the purse-strings..just a bit...and did a little gift buying...just a a few little things for me. I put a toe ring back on my left toe. (It'd been naked for far too long.) I also adorned my wrists with some nice bangles.
Unfortunately we ate lunch at a mediocre Mexican restaurant..which was a shame, for there are many great places to eat in Old Town.  But that was the only bummer of the day!!
Time was well spent at the Mormon Battalion Museum.

Its so cool that the Church rings true no matter where you are.  In Cal., or in the 1800's as  pioneers struggled to survive, and in Chile and Japan!! Love this!!

This was the night we decided that we were risking becoming a burden at the Anderson beach bungalow. The was more company and babies arriving, plus packing and stress happening there. We didnt need to add to it. It was time to relocate.  So we kissed the babies and cousins  goodbye, packed up Lola and went in search of a hotel.
I will be eternally grateful to the Andersons for opening their doors to two old ladies on a whim. Eternally grateful!! If it wasnt for them...all of this wouldnt have happened! Bless you for forever Steve and Jenny!!

This night we spent a peaceful, dare I say, luxurious night...each in our own king-sized beds, with a big screened tv, which we were too tired to watch, and fluffy white towels to buff off the days' sand.

Each day is a gift.
