I visited Old Town San Diego, which is considered the "birthplace" of California. It is the site of the first permanent Spanish settlement in California. I spent the afternoon checking out some creative goodies in outdoor and indoor shops, watching the horses, and eating some good grub at Barra Barra Saloon. I noticed a wonderful assortment of potted cacti and succulents. Many of them were in or just outside the Barra Barra Saloon. I liked the use of unconventional containers like the wheelbarrow (See Photo 2-3), but I fell in love with the cacti/succulent screen/divider (Photo 5).
