Maritime Museum

We picked up grandma at LAX for the mother's day weekend on friday. We had originally decided to go to Pt. Fermin, but on the way I remembered that the boys still hadn't been to the Maritime Museum on the port in SP. So, we changed plans and instead of McDonalds, we went to Acapulco that was right next door to the museum. It was one of my favorite places to go for lunch when I worked in SP and where I had also taken mom and Jon before. It is a beautiful place to relax and eat. So, I knew the boys would love it. We had a table by the sea. The boys were too busy spotting a stingray (not witnessed by an adult), crabs, and starfish to eat much food.

Then we walked over to the museum. There were lots of cool things outside to look at.

Before we really got exploring, the Angels Gate trolley rolled by.
They were working on renovating the old line before I quit working. Of course the boys were enamored, so we decided to take a ride. It just happened to be free for the mother's day weekend!

We took it to the end of the line and back to the museum to continue our tour.

What fun! I have to say, though, that I hate the picture with the boys and Grandma by the huge propeller. I just feel like yelling, "Aaaak! Get away! Fast!"
