Balboa Park, San Diego

The stroll through San Diego's Balboa Park was a treat for me. The Spanish Colonial Revival Buildings were a beautiful sight to see. Besides open areas and natural vegetation, it contains a variety of cultural attractions including museums, theaters, gardens, shops and restaurants. It was so crowded the day I visited with booths set up to celebrate earth day that it was almost impossible to take pictures of all the beautiful sites, but here are a few.

A DAY WITH THE ANIMALS

Last week my son took my granddaughter and I to the Wild Animal Park but I didn't get to stay as long as I wanted so, I promised myself a walk up the hill to Balboa Park to visit(all by myself)the San Diego Zoo. I spent most of the day there just admiring all of those amazing creatures. Below are some photos I took.

DOWN BY THE WATER

Yesterday I walked down by the water and spent the day browsing Seaport Village.
Below are pictures of the area. My favorite attraction was "Unconditional Surrender," a 25-foot, 6,000 pound statue by world-renowned artist J. Seward Johnson commemorating a famous World War II photo of a sailor kissing a nurse.

Shop till you drop!

Here are pictures of the Horton Plaza Shopping Mall downtown San Diego, where I successfully found a pair of earrings to wear to the wedding.
