Frances, Rachel and I went to REI for their sale and then went on down to Ports O'Call where we enjoyed a lovely meal at Picollo's.

And visited many of the shops and bought some sea shell shaped gumdrops for Leonard and Susanna.

Postcard front:

Ports O'Call, San Pedro, California

Postcard back:

Leonard's comments:

They always have a big St. Patrick's Day celebration down at Ports O'Call.

Sounds like a fun time. I wonder if the 'gumdrops' were what we would call gummies today? A seashell-shaped gumdrop seems kinda weird.
