I observed a few interesting things in downtown San Diego during my morning walk.
First, a parking lot in East Village was swarming with hundreds of seagulls. Someone was tossing the gulls a large quantity of crumbs. It was quite a spectacle, as you can see in my photographs.
Of course, feeding birds downtown makes them more of a potential nuisance. And the people who’d parked nearby might have something to say…
Next, as I walked past old Horton Plaza, I noticed its redevelopment is progressing right along. The exterior of the now enlarged building at the corner of G Street and 1st Avenue, former home of a Nordstrom department store, has some new skin!

Finally, check out the following old relic.
How many pay phones remain in the city? I never see them anymore. I did find one here, at the Convention Center trolley station, next to a brand new high-tech PRONTO ticket machine!
Put that pay phone in a museum!
