Tuesday's Child is off window shopping

I have been complaining of the weather lately being in triple digits haven't I? Well, two weeks later we are in the mid to high 60s. Today started off cold and drizzly and here are some pics as I make my way to Seaport Village to meet my niece Jamie in town for business.

At a stop light in back of a truck full of tortillas! You can see a police car on the right.

It really got dark and rainy as I headed down Washington Street

Straight ahead is an old brewery

Finally made it to Busters in Seaport Village to meet up with Jamie. I started things off with a cup of coffee and she had a delicious looking hot chocolate.

Oh, yummy!

Here is my niece Jamie about to dig in...

...to a delicious order of french toast with toasted coconut and bananas.

Yes, that's me eyeing up what's on my plate...

...Eggs Benedict!

Surprisingly the weather had cleared up when we left the restaurant BUT just for the record it did get overcast once again and the temperature cooled.

Look at these gorgeous flowers and a beautiful blue sky.

There are so many beautiful photo ops, here are a few

One of the many plaza's that dot the village

Cerveza, anyone!

Love this sign

Here's a store called Urban Lounge which features a lot of fair trade items.

This isn't such a great shot but here is a photo of the USS Ronald Reagan across the bay.

In the distance towards the left is the Coronado Bridge.

Let me take you into my favorite store at Seaport Village. It's Upstart Crow and besides books and great lattes, they got lots unique merchandise.

From fun jewelry...

...to the expected tchotchkes!

A take on soap on a rope, how about candles on a rope

Pretty little tea pot

A selection of teas

Love this mug!


Ok, remember my last post where I found that cute kitty mug? I did go back to Marshall's to pick it up and did you happen to guess what the price was? I was pleasantly surprised!

Yes, only $2.99 so I did pick it up!

Have a great rest of the week!


  1. Oh that was fun! . I have never seen candle on a rope! That was a good buy on the kitty mugs Bonnie. I would have thought they were more than that... Thank you for taking me along. You and your niece look great!
    Have a good week.

  2. I haven't been there in years but I remember a great Christmas store there. Your niece is cute and you my dear...are gorgeous! Next time I'm up there, I will def look you up and we can shop and eat our way thru Old Town or somewhere fun. Yeah...last week here, it was 113...last two days...rain...we better hurry up, I think the end is coming...lol


  3. How lovely to go out for breakfast and shopping with two beautiful ladies! There's so many pretty things where you live, gorgeous architecture, stunning greenery, marvellous merchandise and don't even get me started on that scrumptious fayre.
    Thanks for sharing. xxx
    Ps Glad you picked up a mug, what a bargain.

  4. BONNIE!!! What fun, and as always , you look stunning! I am so glad that the weather finally started to cool down! We are having a gorgeous fall, but warmer than usual! It will change soon enough, however!

    BISOUS, Anita

  5. Candles on a rope, The Mermaid is In ... what a wonderful day out! I really enjoyed your pix and I'm feel really hungry now. What'll it be? French toast or eggs Benedict? Think I'll go the eggs;) xo

  6. mmmm the hot chocolate and pastries look positively delectable! =)


  7. Looks like you had a great time! Your Niece is very pretty!!

    Did you take those pictures whilst driving Miss Bonnie ;P I won't tell :D

    Sal xXx

  8. That looks like country ham on your eggs benedict! My favorite breakfast--well, I also like country ham on biscuits. In fact, I'm heading down to Virginia in a few weeks to get some--ham and biscuits.


  9. Hi there-what a wonderful time you had and really lovely pictures too! Hope you have a great weekend my dear! x

  10. BONNIE!!! Oh I knew you would be moved by the boots...and your niece must have looked smashing! I will forever love this era for the music, the fashion, and the slightly innocent age of discovery....I don't know if we can say that about this age, but the sixties ROCK ON! So good to see you dearest. My work is scary busy; I hardly have time to think!

    Have a great evening, Anita

  11. it looks like you had a wonderful day..my kind of day! A great breakfast, some sight seeing and of course, shopping!! Jaime and you look marvelous in your pictures and I am loving your kitty mug. Next time can I come along?!

    Have a great weekend, my friend!


  12. Looks like you guys had a great time (as a matter of fact I'm pretty hungry after seeing that yummy food:). It's been cool and sunny here lately which we are enjoying!



  13. Crikey,the tortilla truck really has me going.I'm so jealous of all the Mexican deliciousness that surrounds you.If I saw that tortilla truck here,I'd run it off the road and then abscond with it!!I bet they are corn ones too.Corn tortillas are hard to get here,and expensive when you do find them.I keep meaning to make some,but I'm too bloody lazy!
    All those cushions are fab!!And I love that mug too!AND the kitty mug! Fab pix,doll!

  14. Hi Bonnie! What a fun post! I did a little virtual shopping...and eating! lol Yummy...eggs benedict...my favorite! You look fabulous and your niece is a cutie! Love the little birdie teapot...so pretty! I hope you are having a great day! Our weather is back to summer again...ugh! Come on, Fall! Happy weekend...hugs...Debbie
