Friday-San Diego

First thing Friday morning was breakfast with Steve!
Always good to have time with one of my children.
And the food was pretty good!

Then I was off to one of my places-
Rosies Calico Cupboard quilt shop!
The fabric in the top photo came home will me,
The top four are destined to be part of the Lucy Boston 
The purple, well, hum. I'm not a huge fan of purple.
I don't have much in my stash and I have a couple of projects that
I will want purple for.
And the Violets are so sweet.

After a trip back to the hotel for the camera I was off to 
Cabrillo National Monument.
Another of my favorite places in San Diego.
High on a peninsula west and south of downtown I always see things I haven't seen before!

Tall grasses with San Diego Harbor in the background.

Cruise ship coming into port!

The historical Point Loma Lighthouse.
I've taken a ton of pictures of this light and still I take more!
This is from the sea side.
When you move from the east side to the west this is what you see.

The Pacific Ocean!

After finding my way back to my hotel I meet up with Steve, Candice and Nora for dinner.
We sat on the patio at the Fish Market-I think we were hanging over the water of the 
Watched ships - a Navy tanker coming into port, a Navy destroyer headed out to sea, 
a refrigerator ship also going out and numerous 
harbor cruises- very nice.

After that we hit another place I love
La Jolla Shores beach for a long walk on the sand as the tide came in.

Followed that up with dessert at this marvelous cafe which is famous for it's fancy desserts.
Trying to choose just one is next to impossible!
I had a lemon bar-mostly because it was smallish but also because I love lemon bars.
