We headed to Seaport Village for the morning, which started as usual with a Starbucks Coffee, Levi has been joining in with us sharing in having a Caramel Frappe. this is the stuff of holidays, a nice new drink you can share in.
We wandered down the Seaport village walkway to investigate the ship we saw at the opposite end.
Which happened to be the USS Midway Museum, Shane was in heaven.
He and the boys decided to spend the morning exploring, while Mia and i happily offered to go shopping in Seaport Village instead.
The boys absolutely loved their experience, and Shane claims this as his favourite time in America.
Mia and I loved our time wandering the shops, spending time in the bath soap shop.
The Christmas store, be still my heart, I will have to post a photo of our find here at Christmas time.
I even love their countdown to Christmas sign, so quaint and lovely.
We ate lunch here by the water at a beautiful Greek Cafe, amazing.
When we had finished wandering around the village we headed to Old Town San Diego, have I mentioned that I love California? Because I do.
There was interesting history and museums to learn from, as we wandered with the kids reading and exploring.
They had never heard of Wells Fargo until we came to America, and so it was interesting learning the history.
Such different architecture in Southern California where we could see where the influence had come from.
Meeting the Old town blacksmith was a highlight, we listened and learned from him for ages.
So wonderful to learn about history in another part of the world. The kids asked questions and he answered with such knowledge and desire to help them think and learn.
There was also lovely shopping to be done in unique stores dotted throughout the property.
Oh how I love this picture, the red, the wood, the dried foliage.
Colour around every corner and a truly festive atmosphere.
I love Terracotta Tiles.
We ate dinner at the most beautiful Mexican restaurant, sitting back relaxing in the joy filled atmosphere chatting about our day. This is the way to do learning and holidays.
From here we headed to our hotel in Orange County watching the sunrise over the beaches as we drove, absolute heaven.
Lots of Love
