Then I got an email from her saying she was going to be coming out here to CA with her husband. She was only going to be 2 hours away from me down in San Diego.
I was so excited! To top off the excitement she told me about another wonderful blogger Cori, from http://gingerbreadcrumbsandcompany.blogspot.com/ who happens to live very close to me, was going to be meeting up with us too. Cori used to live in San Diego and was going to be our tour guide!
Our first stop was to Old Town. The picture above is of Cori on the left and Pat on the right. It was pretty funny because none of us wanted our pictures taken. So when we did give in we would try to hide behind something.
The pottery was so cheerful and bright.
This is where we ate. This picture was taken when we first got there and it was not even open yet. The resturant is called Casa Del Rey. The Mexican food was great.
This water fountain is just outside the resturant.
We also got to go to Point Loma Light House. It was the first real light house I've ever seen.
We even got to go inside and see how the light house keeper lived back in the late 1800's. It was very small but cozy.
We all agreed we wanted to stay up there as the views were beautiful, the cool breeze felt wonderful and the house was so sweet.
We also stopped at a small town called Heritage Park. The houses there were so pretty. Though most, if not all are now businesses. There is a B&B there.
Cori had been married here and got to stay in the B&B. Lucky girl!
This house was turned into a gift shop but it was closed. There was even a chain blocking the stairs off but I made Cori and Pat take the chain down and go up there anyway. The stairs were decorated so cute for fall I didn't want to miss out on their photo there.
There is even a little stone rabbit. We all took a picture of the stone rabbit in memory of the blog Stone Rabbit. My close up didn't come out so this photo will have to do.This darling little tea house was there also. While we had already had lunch we still had to go check it out. They had a little gift shop so we browsed around.
No one was having tea there. I don't know why as it is so cute. Plus it was only $20. I would love to go back someday and actually eat there. Cori!! Did you hear that? Want to go with me?
I loved how they did this display. I've never seen anything like that before. Such a great idea.
The chandelier is huge and so beautiful. This photo doesn't do it justice at all.
We did not buy anything here. Well, we did get a drink and we sat outside. The weather was great there. The view was lovely and the company could not have been better.
Sadly our time was up and we had to get Pat back to the hotel she was staying at so she could meet up with her husband for dinner.
I had a blast. I got to meet two great women that I hope will remain life long friends.
Cori and I have said we were going to get together and I hope we really do.
I'm planning a trip to New York and I hope Pat will be willing to meet up and show me around, at least for a little while.
If you get a chance to meet either of these gals I hope you jump at the chance because you won't be sorry.
