On Friday morning after Handsome left for another long day of business meetings, I decided to explore what San Diego treasures I could find on the walking path that I could see from our hotel room.

About 10 minutes into my walk I came upon the most adorable little village, Seaport Village, San Diego.  When I first came upon the village I thought it would have a few cute little shops and a couple of restaurants.

In fact, there are 4 miles of meandering cobblestone pathways adorned with beautiful landscaping of ponds and waterfalls all located right off the bay in San Diego.

Seaport Village, San Diego Carousel

I was so excited to see this antique carousel.  All the carousel animals were hand carved in 1895 by Charles Loof.  Isn’t it amazing that something so very old is still running today delighting children and adults alike and the cost is only $2.00?
