Olde Town San Diego

The second night I was here we took my sister to one of our favorite restaurants down in Olde Town San Diego, called Cafe Coyote.

We like to eat outside under the stars or, since it's the season for blizzards in San Diego, under the snowflakes.

Right near the restaurant is a candy shop that is as much eye candy as it is candy candy.

We didn't eat here but I love all the colorful garlands!

You've got to work with what you've got and since pine and fir trees are in short order, holiday lights wrap up the palm trees.

Miranda's is an shop I always want to visit.

It's full of lots of Mexican folk art, shrines, terra cotta everything and...

... Dia de Los Muertos art. Make sure you click on the pics to get a better view of the details.

I think this is just a closet but I like the bright colors on the wall and door.

I was very good. I only bought a few tiny milagros for me and this definitely-not-for-kids guitar for Joli. (it was only $4) In this photo she was saying "I did it!" because she manage to make the plastic strings make a sound.

We walked around just enjoying the ambience and the night air. I liked this sign on a corner cafe. The name of the restaurant was cute too - O'Hungry's.

A placard on another corner pointing the way because of course I want to know where I can buy a decent sword. Ya never know when you might need a sword in the city.

I don't know if it's the MOST interesting city but it certainly is AN interesting city!

Pretty winter shadows on the church steps.
