Old Town San Diego is considered the first Spanish settlement of California. Founded in 1769, It's the site of the first of 21 missions established by Father Junipero Serra.
Many restaurants have these flags that also double as ads for beer.
It's Memorial Day weekend so there's long lines for the restaurants. I saw this girl playing with the flag pool while waiting outside.
The restaurants are also selling "Home Made" flour tortillas for a quick snack. They usually serve it with butter.
This shop sells novelty t-shirts for those with a sense of humor.
This girl just happened to glance up. I usually return with smile or a nice gesture.
Originally I was just going to take a photo of the dress but these two guys ended up entering the shop using both the entrances at the same time.
This vendor was on a cart and was selling all sorts of novelties including puppets.
I got some flare trying while taking a photo of this restaurant hostess.
This shop sells handmade pottery in many styles.
This guy can make a clay sombrero with your name on it.
This is the Estudillo House, an old historical adobe house.
Wonder what this guy was staring at.

Some more historical buildings with some rustic charm.
Concentration. This guy does caricatures while you wait.
Theres a bus that takes you on a tour to see the haunted side of Old Town. It's not for me.
After Old Town, we headed to T J Osyter bar in Chula Vista. This is one bar tender I would not want to mess with out in the streets.
