Chinese New Year's Festival in San Diego

San Diego is made up of many district's. 
Most of them have cool vintage signs
announcing the district.

A table full of succulents.

This view of Little Italy includes an old stucco
church, an old house and some of the newer 
buildings downtown.

This view is looking from the Farmer's Market
toward the bay. You can see the water
in the middle of the picture.

Chinese children's clothes.

Pretty Chinese lantern.

The Chinese dragon.

This is a building down by the Convention


Beautiful and tall buildings.

Waiting for the trolley.

This is the view from where we
were waiting for the trolley.
That is the Convention Center on
the other side of the Palm trees.

Today was so much fun! My daughter and her husband met us at our Hotel this morning to head downtown San Diego on the blue line trolley. Our first stop was Little Italy where the Farmer's Market was going on. We sampled some goodies and I bought a beautiful salad bowl with some serving utensils, made out of pounded out shells, at a fair trade booth. We jumped back on the trolley and got off downtown where the Chinese New Year's Celebration was happening. We ate egg rolls and enjoyed the Chinese culture. It is the year of the dragon and there were a couple of dragons roaming through the crowds. I took a few good photos of the festivities. Very exciting! We stopped for a coffee and rested before we walked back to catch the trolley. Another GREAT day!!
