I couldn't help it...

As much as I LOVE California, I also love Italy.  I couldn't help but want to visit Little Italy in San Diego.  Mom and I stopped and grabbed a coffee on our way out of town and took a bit of a walk with our cameras.  It was so cool to be able to read the signs there and know what the different restaurant and shop names meant.  For example, one of my favorites from living there was Gelato Vero - True Gelato, aka, the real stuff!  here are a few of my pictures from that morning...

Cefalu! I know EXACTLY where that is!

Hi Jacqueline, No, the name Vanessa Lemen doesn't ring a bell. Does she live in SD? Little Italy?
